birthday banner

Birthdays are a big deal around here!  I want to make sure everyone feels special on their special day.  To me, birthdays are just as important (if not more so) than any other holiday.  So I started thinking, if I decorate my house for every other holiday, why don't I decorate when it's someone's birthday?  Nowadays we put up decorations for an entire month when it's someone's birthday.  We even have a countdown!  But there's nothing better than a banner to really make it special ;)

I wanted everything to match, so I cut up some coordinating scrapbook paper I had leftover from the centerpieces and countdown blocks I already made.  Then I used some twine and a simple zig-zag stitch to chain them together.  I love how it turned out!  And now we're ready to celebrate proper.  *B
