Birthday Party Banners & Cupcake Toppers

I love making banners! A customer ordered birthday banners & cupcake toppers for her son and niece who are having a joint birthday party.  She sent me invitations for each child and asked me to mix the boy and girl colors with out it looking too girly for the boy but yet, still girly enough for the girl.  I decided to go with the orange as the “common” color to tie it all together.

Did you know you can run crepe paper through your ruffler foot on your sewing machine! Yep! That is what I did.  Once the crepe paper was ruffled, I then glued it to the back of the circles.

I used my Cricut to make the cupcake toppers and then used my circle punch to cut out the words that I printed from my computer.
