My sweet Ella Grace is turning ONE next week!
I decided to make a banner for her first birthday. I searched on Pinterest for ideas and there wasn't anything that I felt was right. I did find a template and decided to design my own. I cut each layer of the banner by hand.
|I used three patterned papers |
and three different colors

I am not sure how long it took me to complete it since I worked in little bursts. I worked on it when I had a spare minute here and there. It also didn't help that I had it half finished when Lucas got hold of a pair of scissors. He destroyed most of it. So I had to start all over. I was able to salvage some of it.
I used repositionable adhesive to attach the "1st" to the banner. I am hoping to reuse the banner each year. I want to take a picture of Ella with it and document how much she has grown with each
