For Gwen’s second Minnie birthday party I created a subway art print to celebrate. I came across a cute Minnie mouse subway print on Etsy and craft-lifted the design to create this subway art piece (thanks for the awesome idea!). For those of you that don’t want to DIY your print you can always buy one! After the party you can hang it in a frame in your daughters room so you can enjoy for time to come.
I have a huge stash of fonts (over 1,000) on my computer and love a project where I can mix & match fonts. I spent a lot of time selecting the fonts. Try one and then if it doesn’t work you can select another. It’s a lot of fun! I worked on it, took a break and then came back a few times to see it with fresh eyes. I used the same digital paper you’ve seen in the banner and other pieces. I used Photoshop essentials to create this print. If you are looking to download some new fonts, here’s a link to my favorite fonts on Pinterest.
I layered two of the pattern pieces for the background (striped & dots). When complete I added a piece of blue & black cardstock but the rest of the piece is just one piece of 12×12 white paper. I incorporated the “bow-tique” theme into the subway art that was first used on the invite. For the Minnie mouse silhouettes I took the shape from the cupcake topper, removed the words and added the letters on top. Using the Minnie heads worked well because Gwen’s name has just four letters.
My favorite font is used is “Cheri” with the cute hearts for the I’s and hearts inside of the O’s.
This is a super fun project with so many possibilities. Here’s a link to all the rest of the Minnie Mouse Birthday decorations. Next up I’ll share more Minnie decorations!
