I wanted to share a beautiful gift that was given to me a year ago for Gwen’s birth. It’s a pennant style banner that says “Gwenyth” and is decorating the wall in her baby room.
It was a special handmade baby shower gift by my special friend Michelle. She’s been making these for others and I was thrilled to be the recipient for one of her lovely baby banners.
I picked paper that would match the colors I was using in her room for the wall color and accents (light green, light pink, blue, brown, etc).
Fits just perfectly above the closet door:
- Michelle used die cuts at Ben Franklin to cut most of the shapes: the triangle for the pennant (7 wide at top & 9 1/2 in height), 4 inch circle scallops for the letters to sit in side (2 1/2 inches tall).
- All of the pattern papers used are from the BasicGrey Lemonade Collection. I made sure to get two of the collection packs so that it could be used for both the handmade gifts being made for the baby room. I am planning to use this paper to make some baby girl scrapbook layouts in Gwen’s baby album too.
- Ribbon is sewed across the top to give it great stability. It’s bunched up to create a beautiful look. Short pieces of ribbon is also tied in between each pennant.

Here’s a photo taken by Michelle at my shower after I opened the banner. Thank you Michelle for the beautiful gift that looks so lovely in Gwen’s room! We love it!!
