|The glitter I chose was a really pretty nude-gold that I picked up at Micheal's in the scrap booking department.|
|The typo was an easy fix.|
For Hayley’s banner, I wanted to keep myself around a $25 budget and I actually managed to stay well within that. I printed out the letters in the size and font I wanted and made a stencil that was then traced onto metallic poster board. After cutting out the letters I then draped my dining room table with plastic and commenced the glittering. Using an old cheap paintbrush and Elmer’s glue, I went glitter crazy. Thankfully, I was bragging about my sweet banner to my homegirl, Kris, who pointed out a near catastrophic error: it was Feliz Cumpleaños, not Feliz Compleaños. Rookie mistake, I know- but sometimes you just get so caught up in a project that the most simple errors just slip by. I decided to use simple gift wrap twine and mini clothespins to hang up the banner.
|Kris saves the day.|
|Tiny clothespins are not only super cute, but make adjustments and repositioning immensely easier.|

All in all the banner was a great success and stayed hung up at the birthday girl’s house for a couple weeks. So the verdict is in- everybody gets a banner from now on, which is great because, I was super over making cupcakes all the time... I just need to find more sassy ways to say “Happy Birthday!” to all of my loved ones.
