Party Decor Blog Hop

Minced Paper


Welcome to our Party Decor Blog Hop. We have a fantastic group of ladies who love to make party decorations and we are excited to share our projects with you today! If you just happened to find my blog, thank-you so much. However, so you don't miss awesome projects or the chance to win blog candy, you will want to start at the beginning at http://mincedpaper.blogspot.com.



My Bestie asked me to help her create a Birthday banner for her Aunt's 60th Surprise Birthday Party.
So of course I wanted to help and I knew this would be perfect for this fun Blog Hop.  We wanted something elegant and I think this turned out beautifully!

Cricut Cuts:
Something to Celebrate - Decor Feature <Shift> Button 47, cut at 7.5 (Base)
Button 47 again without the Shift key selected, cut at 7.5 (Base Layer)
Storybook - Shadow Feature, cut at 5.5 (Font Base)
No Feature Key, cut at 5.5 (Font)

I laid everything out on my Gypsy which was great!
It's hard to tell by the picture, there is a solid and pattern paper on every other letter. 
The solid paper was run through the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.
Using my Gypsy I was able to name the tabs by the different colors so I didn't get confused.
Also using my Gypsy I used the Hide/Countour Feature to remove the hole in the middle of the base.  I then added two holes in the corners of the base so we could run Tulle through to hang the banner.
Embossed with Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder

Pattern Paper

Here is some more Party Decor that coordinates with our Banner.


I am the last stop on this fun Party Decor Hop and hope you have found a ton of great inspiration.  Below is the lineup in case you missed anyone along the way.  I hope you remembered to comment on everyone's blog along the way to be eligible for the Blog Candy.  To win, all you have to do is comment on each of the designer's blogs. Following everyone's blog isn't required but we sure do appreciate it when someone new follows our blogs. The winner will be announced on http://mincedpaper.blogspot.com on April 27th.

Blog Candy is a $20 gift card to Michaels.
