Cupcake Birthday Banner

I know, I know. I haven't blogged in months. That's because I haven't crafted in months!! This summer was very busy. Every day I would wistfully look into my craft room wishing I could sit down and make something. Then I'd hear, "Mooooommmm!" and that was the end of that. ;-)

My daughter's bff was having her 10th birthday party and I wanted to make a little something special for her. She is such a sweet girl and my daughter absolutely loves her. She had a cupcake making party complete with fondant and some pretty amazing cupcake designs.

So I thought a basic banner just wouldn't do. I cut out 10 cupcakes with my Silhouette machine using PTI's cardstock. I matted each picture and then adhered them onto the cupcake. I then used the circle nesties to frame the stamped numbers. I took a few pictures so you can see it better.

(You can click on the pictures to see them larger.)

Did you spot that splint on my daughter's thumb? Yes, that was a fun trip to the Urgent Care. I got a call from the school nurse that she had hurt herself in PE. Turns out she was diving for a ball. She must have a high tolerance for pain because the nurse didn't call me for an hour and a half after it happened. The dr said it was broken but the hand specialist didn't find a fracture.  She said with children it sometimes doesn't show up for 2 weeks. Who knew?! We have a follow up visit next week. It still hurts her but she's gone to her soccer practice and games. Tough little cookie I got. :)

Anyway, hope you liked my project that I made. I had so much fun making it!!


  1. I absolutely LOVE this project!!! Love the design, the colors...FANTASTIC!!!!

  2. this is so cool!! i bet the girls loved it!!

  3. This is adorable! So cute. I love all the pictures inside each cupcake on the banner. I did notice that splint! Ouch. She probably handled it better than you. Kids are like that, I sure wouldn't be playing soccer, probably would still be in bed with my hand propped up on pillows. Glad to see you crafty again Susan.

  4. What an adorable project!! I know your DD's friend will love it. Hope her thumb isn't broken.

  5. What a fabulous gift for the birthday girl (and her Munm) - an excellent idea. You are so clever Susan!

  6. Oh how fun!! I just love your banner! I bet your dd's friend loved it!!

  7. Gosh no wonder the girls look so happy with the banner - its just gorgeous and so appropriate for the cupcake party!
