Burlap & Lace Birdie Birthday Banner by Karen

Hello Karen here today with a fun idea!  Used lots of SRM goodies on this project and they are all listed at the bottom.

We recently were able to celebrate the 70th Birthday of a wonderful and sweet woman - my husband's mom. To add to the day's celebration I created this fun birdhouse themed banner to hang at her party. I really like how the natural look and feel of the burlap ribbon and twine plays with the soft colors and elegant touches of lace ribbon and doilies.

used my Cricut to cut the basic banner shapes (3 layers). I cut 4 inch doilies in half and adhered a half on the bottom portion of each base piece and added a row of black stitching sticker at the midpoint. Each two layered letter is adhered with pop dots for added dimension.

I love to add words and phrases to my projects and SRM clear stickers are perfect for doing just that. I used a variety of sticker sheets to find just the right words in just the right sizes to add fun details.

I wanted to add a little bit more to my banner and a strip of the new raw-edged burlap ribbon behind each banner shape added another great layer and natural element. I used mini clothespins to hang the pieces from the new jute twine.  To dress up my banner I also added several lengths of ribbon to each end, including the wired burlap (curled so cute!), white lace, and bit of the blue in a blue striped ribbon from my stash.

For this project I used:
3 colors of cardstock
 White 4" Doilies 
White Lace  
Burlap Ribbon 
Burlap Wired Ribbon 
Jute Twine in white
Sticker Sentiments - Happy Birthday  
We've Got Your Border - Birthday
