Whether you’re throwing a first birthday, graduation, or any other type of party – what better way to visually recap on the past year for your celebration than with a photo banner? For this project, I created a 12 pennant banner using the Echo Park Pennant Banner (Design ID #43106) allowing a spot for a photo from each month for the past year. Specifically, for this party, it’s from birth through little Gianna’s first birthday.
After pulling each image into it’s given pennant, I printed them on Silhouette’s Printable Cotton Canvas and cut it out with my CAMEO using a fabric blade. I LOVE how photo’s look printed on canvas like this and the texture it adds to the banner.
Utilizing the offset feature in Silhouette Design Studio, I was able to cut border shapes out of kraft paper and various patterned cardstocks. One of the best parts about the Printable Cotton Canvas is that it’s also adhesive on the back, so you literally just have to stick the printed photo onto the larger cardstock pennant.
Add some string and hang it up for your guests to relive some of the moments and milestones from the past year! What event would you use an idea like this for? So many photos, so many possible parties…Happy Celebrating and Happy Crafting!
