{She said Yes} Bridal Shower Banner

I created another banner...yep, I might have a slight obsession with making banners! :) This one was for my friend Lauren's Bridal Shower that we had last month. We did a tropical flair (inspiration post here, and actual shower post here), so I used my cricut to cut out the flower shapes in 2 different sizes. And on the patterned paper I also cut the letters out in the middle of it so the plain paper would show through. Can anyone catch my boo-boo? Ok, well don't pay too much attention to the direction the stripes are going...oops! I just noticed that myself. I then glued them together, and taped them to some fishing line. You can always use fun ribbon, but I forgot to pick some up, so I just used what I had on hand. Again, these are so inexpensive to make, and so easy to put together!

UGH .... the darn wind that day was terrible.

As you can guess, I'm creating one for the Bachelorette Party that is coming up in a couple of weeks!! I told you I might be obsessed!! :)

Here are a couple other banners I've done in the past:

Personalized Chevron Sign {from hobby lobby}

Hobby Lobby had this blank chevron sign in their Spring section that I purchased this last Spring, and I finally did something with it. I added our friends last name to it, and gave it to her as a "Thank You" for hosting the fun Saturday pool parties for all of us! It goes perfect in their backyard, which is a retreat all in itself. She LOVED it!! This project was very inexpensive, less than $1 for the amount of vinyl I used (purchased from Expressions Vinyl), and the sign was maybe $5. I of course used my Cricut to cut the vinyl out, and used my Cherry Limeade cartridge.

You can see here that I did something similar to this Christmas sign I personalized for my mother in-law 2 Christmas's ago.
