Happy Birthday

In my life, March is "Birthday Month."
My brother, my sister, my husband, my mom and my mother-in-law, plus several friends, all celebrate their birthdays in March.
In honor of all these annual celebrations, I figured I had better do some sort of birthday project.
I found these glittery sheets of craft foam at Hobby Lobby and they seemed very birthday-ish to me.

I decided to make a birthday banner with them.
First I traced the letters on the back of the foam. Reversed, of course.
Then I decided that I didn't like the size of the traced letters, so I modified them a bit.
After cutting out the letters, I arranged them in reverse order and used Tacky Glue to attach yard to the back.
While this was drying, I had another idea: I could use the banner to display all the birthday cards that I never have room to put up.
So, I made a trip to Hobby Lobby with my dear friend Jamie, and bought these mini clothespins.
The Tacky Glue came back out and the clothespins got attached.
Finally, I hung the banner up on the nails I put in back in December (for a Christmas banner).
Happy Birthday Everyone!

Oh I thought you were going to make it to bring to the various birthday celebrations you'd be going to...
Guess you'll have to make a second for that purpose! ;-)

Now I know where Brynn gets her love of glitter and bling from.
