Minnie Mouse Banner

Minnie Mouse Birthday Banner (53)

Here’s the Minnie Mouse banner from Gwen’s second birthday party.  I used my Silhouette to cut all of the shapes and the background paper is digital paper printed on my printer.    For the Minnie Mouse birthday party I choose to use pink & blue colors so it was very important to find coordinating paper in these colors.   I was thrilled to find a great set of papers in the perfect pink and blue colors from Lane + May Studio on Etsy.

I wanted to use pattern papers and cut out big thick letters to put on top of the patterns.  This set of papers has 24 different designs and I used just about all of them (except the two animal prints).

Here’s how I made this DIY banner:

  • Printed the digital paper pack onto white 12×12 cardstock.  Amy from Lane + May Studio helped adjust the colors so that when I printed the digital papers the pink came out the perfect shade.  I really appreciated her willingness to help make it perfect so that it would match the rest of the colors, like the pink in the ribbon wreath.  Printers can be difficult because they all interpret colors differently.
  • Made black heart paper (from the blue heart paper) because I needed another black print.

  • Cut scalloped circle shape on the Silhouette – 5 Scalloped circles (by Lori Whitlock)
  • Size – outside circle is 5.5 inches, inside is 5.0 inches
  • The outside of the blue & pink papers are mounted on black cardstock.  The black didn’t look right for the black/white patterns and some of the Minnie patterns so I made some solid pink and solid blue backgrounds to mount these pieces.

  • Used two pieces of organza ribbon in between the scalloped circles

  • Popped up the letters with three pop dots on the back of the letters

  • The raised dots help make the letters show up nice on the paper.  Here’s a detail view showing how much it lifts the letters up off the paper.

Here are some of my favorite banner pieces.  I just love how the patterns all look together.  The hearts, polka dots, chevrons, stripes

  1. Looks Great.

    The background caught my attention and I conclude it does wonders for the beautiful banner.

    I originally thought you had hung the banner on an old barn, but the background looked better than old barn wood.

    When I went back to see if the background was a nice set of drapes.I noticed the piece of new cedar on the bottom.

    The fence was a neat place to use as a background.

    I do look at these. They are great.

    Keep it up
