A Banner Baby Shower

Hi friends,

Today I am making a baby shower layout.  I am making a banner that is similar to others I have made in the past but it does have a little difference.  The banner has an adhesive lace fabric tape that holds it together.  Not only is it pretty but it made the job super easy.

To create the banner I punched out several pendent triangles using four different pattern papers.  I then figured out which background decorative cardstock I wanted to use.  I didn’t want it too bold but I love the cutsie baby paper.  Once I settled on the diaper stacks (because everyone gets diapers at a baby shower) I started laying the pendants down to see where I wanted them placed and what order I wanted them in.  After I figured that out I adhered them to the page.  The first and last pendant hung over the edge so I trimmed the extra off.  I then placed the adhesive lace fabric tape across the top edge of the banner.  I didn’t cut the end until I was sure how long I needed it.  I also didn’t tear off the paper that covered the adhesive until it was back in place over what was left to save for the next project.  I then added a cutie little teddy bear and bootie to the ends of the banner.

The finished banner.

To finish the layout I matted two pictures and layered one over the other.  Then, I just added stickers – presents, Mom-to-Be, Baby Shower, and You are a special child of God.  So cute!

Hope you enjoyed the new take on an old idea!

God bless!

  1. The little diaper paper is sure cute. Perfect for a baby shower page. The flags are cute as well as the lace decorations. It look just like real lace. Sweet smiles on the soon to be parents. And yes, Abby is a special gift from God. Lucky parents. On Pinterest there are some cute ways to use diapers as gifts. Cakes, and all sorts of things. Baby Showers are fun to go to. Such fun little gifts to look at.
