My 2 year old's Birthday Party

 Birthday Party Decor

 We celebrated my 2 yr old's Birthday with the family on Saturday. I wanted to make a banner but didn't have a pennant on any of my cartridges and didn't want to create a triangle one so I found this tag from Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridge. It is button 8 cut at width-5.35" x height 5.6". I embossed the bottom half with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots. Then cut the white letters from Lyrical Letters Cricut Cartridge, Jumbo function at 3". I love that I was able to make a Birthday banner with what I had. If you don't have something, be creative with something you do have.

I made cupcakes for her birthday & wanted to try to make cupcake holders. These were cut from Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge, button 10 at 7". The base of the holder ends up being about 2.5" I wasn't sure what size to make them & this was what I guessed. It left enough room to get the cupcake out without getting icing allover your fingers. I stamped them with My Pink Stamper Stamps:

These were fun to make & made the Birthday special. I can even use them over again next year.
