Time 2 Party - Happy Birthday Butterfly Banner

My dear friend Roni came through for me!!  She captured some great photos of the Happy Birthday banner I did for my daughter's party.  The large butterflies came from Joann's.  I got them 30% off regular price since they were part of the Halloween costume clearance sale!

I made the pennants using a basic banner shapes from the Letter Delights Royal Wedding SVG Set.  I added the holes to thread the ribbon through in the cut file using MTC so all of the pennants would be exactly the same.  I used LD Enquirer font for the actual letters that spell out Happy Birthday. 

I added a few vellum butterflies to some of the pennants for visual interest.  The butterflies were cut using DB Butterflies DoodleBat Font.

All patterned paper used for the pennants came from My Mind's Eye Deena's Penny Lane Glitter Collection.

I hope you enjoyed this banner idea.  Happy crafting!!
