Dr. Seuss Inspired Birthday Pennant

My best friends sweet baby has turned ONE!  You may remember me blogging about her. We welcomed her to this world with a cute Welcome To The World Gift and again with a beautiful Sip and See Shower.

Now it is time to welcome her to the toddler years. Her party is inspired by Dr. Seuss and all of his bright colors and whimsical patterns. I volunteered to make a birthday banner for her high chair. Since it is threatening another snow storm this weekend, I needed a project!

(1.) Supplies. I used red and turquoise card stock, ribbon and some embossing folders.

I used my Cricut and the Pretty Pennants Art Cartridge. I cut out 6 inch triangles and banner tops.

(2.) and (3.) Then I took the triangles and banner tops and dry embossed them using the Cuttlebug embossing sleeves and the Sizzix Texture Boutique. I love how this machine transforms ordinary card stock into beautiful embossed card stock in no time at all!

(4.) Next, add some adhesive to the banner tops and  (5.) adhere them to the triangles.

(6.) I took my exacto knife and cut small slits through both layers of the card stock. One cut on each side of the pennant.

(7.) Weave ribbon in and out of the two slits and continue weaving until you have all the triangles on ribbon. I leave a little space between the triangles so that I can add additional ribbon.

I have linked up to these great blogs:
