I pulled out the old (literally) cricut and starting cutting letters away! It seems like everyone and their brother has a silohette these days but I’m still chilling with my Cricut on the rare chance that I get to do any paper crafting. I set the size at 3″ for the letters and the pressure at 4 since I was using cardstock (leftover from Avery’s birth announcements ironically). I cut the “st” for 1st at 1 1/4″.
Then I pulled out the Kindergarten grade glue stick and stuck a letter on each one.
I love the iridescence of the paper and that it came already hole punched with string included! The 25 pieces were enough to do a “Happy 1st Birthday” banner and a “ONE” banner.
p.s. I’m linking up to Home Stories A to Z, My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia, Sugar Bee Crafts, DIY Showoff and Tatertots and Jello.

This is adorable! I always love pink and gold together :).
It looks wonderful! I just wish I had a cricut too.
Thanks! It's funny how gold has come back in style and no one would have been caught dead with it 8 years ago.
Have you looked on Craigslist? I've probably had this one 8 or 9 years so I would think they would go pretty cheap. Thanks for visiting my blog!
I gave mine away during my scrapping cease fire. I have no idea why I stopped, but it seems like a whole bunch of folks stopped as well. It was just so competitive. lol But now that I am crafting again, I have wishes, and they are undecided on which cutter path to follow.
I used to scrapbook too…then I got so far behind on it that I gave up. I still have a bunch of paper and tools that I use from time to time on other projects though.
