I know that Birthday banners are very popular these days and as you saw I did one for Caden’s First Birthday. I wanted to give you a few tips on making your own birthday banner or at least to show you how I did mine so you can get some ideas.
What you’ll need:
- Box cutter or some type of razor blade
I bought my numbers off Etsy. I can’t remember which shop but you can easily search for them. You can also make your own by using a circle punch or even just printing out large numbers. I went to Michael for my ribbon. I wanted to stick with my Mickey Mouse theme and opted for the red ribbon with polka dots.
I then printed out a background (you can easily use construction paper too) on thick card stock and cut them into 5×7 rectangles. And then hit up Walgreens to print out my 4×6 prints. (Hint: All they see is the outside)
I wanted them to move on the ribbon since I didn’t know how it was going to hang or how far apart I needed them to be. So I used a box cutter and cut little slits where the ribbon goes. I made the slits behind the pictures so you couldn’t see.
(Hint: Taping the picture at the bottom allows them to slide at the top.)
And lastly I taped the Mickey Mouse numbers at the top. Really simple and pretty cheap to do!
Now on to the Giveaway:

I’m looking to give these bad boys away. I don’t see myself using them in the future and I would really love for them to go to good use. They are in great condition but were used for our party.
