Alice Marie’s Birthday Banner

20 Jul
First, can I say to all my awesome readers, WOW have I missed y’all!!  Moving from state to state isn’t as easy as I thought it would be.  I’ve been so overwhelmed I haven’t had time to blog.  I haven’t had time to craft, paint, make jewelry.  In fact I haven’t even unpacked my “crafties” box!! 😦  Then today I thought “OH YEA!! I never did the DIY birthday banner post!” SO here ya go!  The DIY Birthday Banner Post! 🙂

For anyone following me you know that I am IN LOVE with the Spring Banner Myra with My Blessed Life made.  I’ve used her tutorial a few times already to make my own banners. 


Since I made much of the party decorations for Alice’s 3rd birthday party from a pastel color pack of tissue paper.  I decided to MAKE the paper for this banner. I made the party garland

While I’m showing off…did ya see the cake!??  It ALSO matched the decorations!!!

Alie’s Birthday Cake

SO cute right?  I’m totally proud! 🙂  It’s not as cute as my Alie Marie, though!!
OK! Now to the tutorial!! 

To make the paper I just glued pieces of printer paper onto sheets of tissue paper and let them dry over night.

Once the pieces were dry I measured and cut them.  For this banner the squares were all 5″ x 5″.  I saved the left over paper too, so don’t throw it away.

Seeing all the squares stacked like this reminded me of bar napkins.  Now, I was a waitress longer than I care to admit, BUT I do have a cool trick I can teach y’all real quick that I learned in my serving days!
Take a small glass and place it on to of the stack of napkins.

Hold a few of the bottom napkins and press the glass down firmly and start to twist.

After a few twists you have a fancy-shamcy display of beverage napkins!!

OK back to the tutorial!
Take your squares and begin to fold them accordion style.

I lost the pictures of how to turn this into a pinwheel.  BUT, Myra with My Blessed Life, has a GREAT tutorial on how to do these you can see HERE! 
Once my pinwheels were made I traced (with a cup) and cut out circles from the remaining paper.

Then I traced and cut letters out from a piece of scrapbook paper and glued them onto the circles.

Then I glued the letter circles on to the pinwheels. 

I strung the wheels on twine according to Myra’s directions.  This is what the banners looked like at her party.

So what do you think?  I LOVE it!  It’s really easy to make, inexpensive and will ALWAYS match your decor!!!

Super Fun, Cute and Inexpensive Party Garland

9 Jun

Y’all know I love gettin’ creative with tissue paper.  Of course, I got creative for Alie’s party.  Financially speaking, I wasn’t able to give her the party I dreamt off.  Really who can, if you aren’t Jennifer Lopez!  I made EVERYTHING for her party.  Even the cake!!  Did you see the cake!!!  I’m so proud!!!  I’m not much of a cake decorator, either!! 

Alie’s Rainbow Cake
Alie’s Rainbow Cake

Alie Marie LOVED her cake!!  She loved her party! 



For this fun garland I used a tissue paper pack of pastel colors for the dollar store, some hot glue and twine. 

I used a few cups from Alie’s various kitchen sets.  I traced out circles in all the colors.  I hot glued, just a tiny dab, 3 tissue paper circles in each size.  Three of the largest on bottom, then three of the middle circle and finally three of the smallest circle.  Then I glued all the “dots” onto the twine.  I actually measured out and marked where I would glue each “dot” so that it would be nice and even. 

SO easy, right?? 


This is what it looked like at her party!

It also makes a super cute photo background!! 

Having sliced cheese always helps! 


Isn’t she just the cutest!!!  I love my sweet biddy bee!  


Wanna know how to make these lil cuties??

I guest posted the tutorial on my bestie Kassi’s blog!  Go check it out HERE!! 🙂

Alie’s Birthday Cake

6 Jun

For Alie’s cake I decided to do a layered rainbow cake in colors that matched her party!  If you buy the Walmart brand of food color it comes with a “how to” chart on the back.  SO helpful! 

I only did 4 layers and although I really like how it turned out, I think for the next one I would like more layers and thinner layers too. 

I frosted it with whipped white frosting.  I used a little bit of the frosting to make some polka dots for her cake.  I didn’t notice at the time but my cake carrier has a small lip inside that the handle fits into.  The frosting on the cake stuck to it. 😦

I made garland to go onto of the cake.  It’s tiny tissue paper pom poms!  They are so cute and fun to make! Tutorial HERE!


The cake with some of the decorations! Tutorials HERE!! and HERE!!🙂


Alie LOVED her cake!! 🙂


AND…..this is what it looked like on the inside! 


It was a wonderful birthday for my sweet Alie Marie!  Click here to see more!
