I was so excited when I received a box of goodies from Therm O Web as I was running out of my usual adhesives for few weeks – Love, love, love all the adhesive that Therm O Web sent and I was too thrilled and decided to use it to make a birthday banner for my little one. Among these bunch of goodies, my favorite would be the ZOTS (the adhesive dots in medium sized) and also tape glue runner! I love how pretty their colors are (in pink, green and purple – all my favorite) and also they are really light. So suitable for someone who craft long hours like me!
Here’s the birthday banner that I have made using a lot of Elle’s studio’s papers and Therm O Web adhesive. They are so sticky that I do not have worry that something might fall off after I hang it up on the wall.
Here's the simple step-by-step that you could follow making one for your next party too!
This is part of the circle garland that I made – which is very easy to be made. All you need is some papers (I use a lot of Elle’s Studio papers in orange and blue, and also some cardstocks), various sizes of circle punches and a good ol’ sewing machine. Punch a bunch of circles out then sew them with sewing machine in straight line and then you can already started hanging them on the wall.
I decided to have a Whale themed (with orange and white and blue combination) birthday party for my boy. So I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the whales, circles and letters. Stuck all the letters on the whales and big circles using the Therm O Web tape runner. Then I punched two holes on each side of the circles, string them together with ribbons. Off to hang the banner now! I done all these under 3 hours – including coming up with the theme, browsing pinterest, picking out papers and materials.”
