Its been a while……I know.

Been a bit busy ‘not-creating’ and just basking in mommy/family-related duties.

Happy to be back to blogging. So lets get down to business……shall we…….

Paperz! got an order to make a birthday banner for two little boys who share a birthday month. Their parents wanted to adorn a big wall in their house with this banner on the day of the party. The mom picked a bunch of 12 x 12 papers of her choice from my collection of 12 x 12’s for the banner and gave us lots of inputs on the design of the banner itself. She wanted it to be bright, colourful, with lotsa ribbons and hats and cupcakes and ice creams etc on the banner. She wanted it to be sturdy so she could use it every year. And it had to be big so as to make a statement.

Here’s the end result……

And I am happy to say that she liked it too.

Hats, cupcakes, ice cream cone —– all were hand drawn and cut. Flourishes on the background paper are Lifestyle Crafts die. MS punches, PTI dies were used for adding pretty edges to the triangle. The triangle itself is big – 8 1/2 inches by 11. The mom picked Lilybee’s line of patterned papers and that’s what I’ve used on the triangles.

Ribbons are an assortment of local and US purchase. Turned out pretty good, even if I say so myself.

Happy customer = Happy me
