Princess Gracie Birthday Banner

Hi - Lori here from ScrappinMyStressAway and I am super excited to be on The Bug Bytes today!!

I made this princess banner for a very special little girl's 3rd birthday.  I am using my cameo a little more each week!!

I used a dress that I purchased at the Silhouette Online Store and created an offset layer.

On the left, you can see the card that I made by welding two of the offset layers together.  I cut out the pieces for the invitations for mom to make.  I accidentally cut too many glittery princess dresses and decided to make a banner out of them!

I cut out the offset layer in light blue since Cinderella is her very favorite princess (Princess Sophia is a close second)!

I have 8 dresses and only need 6 for her name, so I cut two of these princess crowns out of hot pink cardstock.  This cut came from a princess crown card layer that I purchased from the Silhouette Online Store as well.

I added pink gems to the crown.

I used one of my fonts from my computer to cut out her name.  I added clear gems to her name.

Last month, I won a very cool prize from The Buckle Boutique.  These rhinestones are actually an iron on product, but I used liquid glue to adhere them to my paper dress.  I loved that they were multi colored!!

Here is another shot of the dress.

I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch holes in the sleeves and strung the banner together with white tulle.

The camera does not do this banner justice!!  It is very sparkly!!

Happy 3rd Birthday Gracie!!!

Thanks for having me over today Pam!!!
