I cut out the letters with the silhouette and put them on large squares. This is the same font used on the banner. It’s a much smaller size here but still works because it’s a thick style.
The round Minnie bow silhouettes are from the pattern paper in this digital set. I punched them out with a small circle punch and then used it as the O’s.
I made the paper bows with with the silhouette. This is my first time making a cute bow and I love that it’s 3d. The bow pattern cuts three separate pieces. It’s easy to assemble, just add some glue and it’s complete. I also made a set of these bows for the party so that we can play “pin the bow on Minnie.” I got the idea for the multi-panel rectangle Minnie party sign from the post Melissa did on Bless this Mess. Thanks for the inspiration and great idea! I made my sign large because I wanted the bows to be big. They are 4 1/2 inches from edge to edge and the bottom panel is just about 12 inches wide.
After the party you can hang the sign on your child’s door. We’ve been enjoying seeing the colorful party sign on my daughters door. She talks about the Minnie “Birthday Bow-Tique” every time she passes the party sign.
Next I’ll share another paper project from the second birthday party.
