My brother had his first baby. She is so precious. To bad I don't get to enjoy her since we live across the country from each other. So I made this banner to send with my mom who would be flying there to visit. Since she had to put this in her luggage, I decorated it simple so it wouldn't get messed up. My new niece is Charlotte. They said they would call her Charlie so I made the banner with her nick name.
This is a white giftbox that I decorated & attached a small card to.
I love how her name on this box turned out.
I just combined several stamps to achieve this look.

This is the whole banner. Its so hard to take a good picture of a banner. I hope you can see the concept of the project from this picture.
The first and last flag had washie tape stripes on it.
This is how I added the washie tape to each triangle flag.
Then I took scissors and trimmed the edges before adhering to the scallop flag.
This is what the letter flags looked like.
