Happy Birthday Banner!

Can I just say how much I love my Silhouette machine!  I use it all the time.  The most recent time was for my son's birthday.  He turned 6 years old last month.  He was actually born on my birthday!  Crazy, huh?  There are so many birthdays that are shared in my family!

So, I decided to make a "Happy Birthday" banner for him.  It was a last minute decision, but so fun to make!  I used my machine to cut out everything and all I had to do was glue!  My son strung the ribbon through all the little holes.


I just loved this little cake cutout that I found in my "Silhouette Library".   I thought it added the perfect little touch!


I hung it right in our entry way, so everyone can see it when they walk in!  We kept it up for a few days.  Now every time we have a birthday, we can hang it back up!
