Good Morning!! Tami Mayberry here with you today to share a Seuss Baby Banner. As some of you know, I recently became a grandma. Of course, before baby comes a baby shower! Today I wanted to share with you the banner I created for the event.
While we knew a baby girl was on the way we decided to skip the pink. My daughter has always loved reading. She has been reading since age 3 and some of her first books were Dr Seuss books. So, we decided to go with a Dr. Suess theme and asked guests to bring a signed book in place of a card. The colors we chose were non-traditional red and turquoise. I created a couple different banners for the day. The one I am going to share with you today spanned the width of our deck doors and said "Baby Girl". It was backed by a variety of Dr. Seuss books to carry out our theme. Here is a peek at the "Baby" side, which I will show you how to make today.
This banner is really easy to make and the Sizzix dies used provide the perfect whimsical feel. Each of the dies use the same Sizzix sandwich shown of: a Standard Cutting Pad, followed by the specified die (cutting side up), desired paper or cardstock (pattern side down) and the second Cutting Pad.
The flowers were created using the Bigz Flower #4 die. Die-cut the main flower shapes from red and turquoise dot patterned paper and the centers from white cardstock. You'll need a flower on each end and one between each letter, alternating colors. For this particular banner section I used three red and two turquoise flowers.
Layer the flower pieces together attaching centers using foam squares.
Next, die-cut the individual Bigz Banners shapes from white cardstock, one for each desired letter. For this banner you'll need four letters.
Finally, die-cut the letters for the banner, using the Bigz Fresh Blossoms Alphabet dies.
Layer the letters onto the white banners.
Finally, attach the flowers and banner word onto baker's twine using double sided tape.
And there you have it!!
No baby on the way? No problem! This would make cute decor for a variety of of occasions by changing the wording!
