I bought a scapbook paper stack from Hobby Lobby. 180 sheets of polka dot, stripes, plaid, etc in a variety of colors and I'm going to do all the decorations and invitations using them. The first project I tackled was a banner. After all every good party needs a banner right? I saw this one and knew I needed to make one of my own. I hand traced and cut each onesie out and used my cricut to cut the circles and letters to spell baby Channing's name. I have to say after cutting all those onesies out by hand I have a new found appreciation for my beloved Cricut.
I used some ribbon I already had along with clothespins I already had. Then I dug through my boxes of fabric to find some scraps I could cut up to tie in between each onsie. I wasn't trying to make colors match or anything, I just wanted some bright colors in the mix.
This is not where the banner will hang during the shower but it was the only wall space that I could get a picture without toys, pictures, tables, windows, or Grant's hands in the photo.
I absolutely love this banner. It just screams "baby", and I like that it couldn't be used for a birthday or any other kind of celebration.
I have many more "About to POP" projects coming up, as I'm slowly completing them marking them off my list one by one, so stay tuned!
