Hello all! I'm back today with some fun birthday decor items I created this past week using American Crafts Confetti collection as well as some of their yummy ribbon and glitter cardstock!
First I made this fun cupcake...it was pretty time consuming since I didn't have any die cuts or patterns to work with but it was all worth it in the end. I started with a styrofoam ball and fan folded the happy birthday paper to create the cupcake wrapper. Then I punched out a bunch of circles and used straight pins to attach them to the styrofoam ball. Finally I finished it off with some fun ribbon and of course a birthday candle! :)
Then I wanted to make a coordinating decoration using the great new large Flair from American Crafts so I decided it would be the perfect centerpiece for a birthday banner.
How fun would these be to surprise a teacher or someone at the office?! I think they would be a great way to decorate someone's small work area on their birthday.
Okay, I am off for a day of shopping and packing! I'll be back soon with a new layout to share! Have a wonderful day!
