Birthday banner

I had lots of fun this weekend making my first banner, I love how it came together. I even impressed my sister (an expert scrapbooker) asked me if it came from a kit!

I went to a scrapbook store and bought pink paper from all over the store, and used their die-cut machine to get my letters and the scalloped circles and squares and smooth circle.
I also got some coordinating embellishments and ribbon from the clearance jar.
I also added strips of hot pink tulle in with every other ribbon section
I used a hole punch and tied the ribbons in a knot between the two letters and just a little ribbon loop on the ends to hold the banner up
