Shabby Chic Banners

shabby chic bannerKim of The Ravenous Couple had a lovely shabby chic baby shower this past weekend. Sadly I wasn’t able to attend this yummy and pretty fete in CA, but I contributed a couple banners and some cake bunting to show my love for #ravenousbaby. 🙂

shabby chic banners

1. Welcome Sign – For the main banner, I was inspired by this printable banner from Dulce Grace Printables. The cardboard cardstock was cut to 5×7 with an inch tall triangle cut-out, the floral paper to 3.25×5 and the pink strip to 0.5×5. I used my Cricut to cut out the 3.8×3.8 white frame and 3.25 inch pink letters.

2. Table sign – For the “It’s a Girl” banner, I cut out 4 3/8 inch circles, used 4 inch doilies, and 2.75 inch pink letters.

3. Cake bunting – I learned the hard way that for cake bunting, you cut out DIAMONDS, not triangles. I used the same paper from the welcome sign with some pink baker’s twine and skewers. My Cricut had some trouble cutting out the tiny letters, but I made it work. I added some pinwheels to the skewers to match the pinwheel backdrop that another friend made.

For all banners, I prefer using adhesive roller tape instead of glue to make things neater. I think they turned out quite nicely and matched her other crafty friends’ creations. I sure missed out on a wonderful party based on these great pics from attendees (limer35 aka The Pinoy Panda and Kitchen Runway).
