Greetings! This is Yolie with the Social Media Design Team, bringing you some DIY Birthday Decorations.
Let's start with the curtain banner. I trimmed the words and cupcakes from The Confetti Stack. I alternated a word and a cupcake and hot glued each onto strips of twine, allowing about 1/2" between each one. *Note: When cutting your twine or cording, allow enough on the top to adhere them to the bar holder.
I then took a sheet of the double sided card stock from The Flipside Stack. I cut 2 - 4" strips, scored them down the middle, and fringed the ends. I used the end of a paint brush to curl the fringe. I then adhere both fringed strips together, allowing for about 1/2" of overlap.
Before adding the chipboard strips, find the center of the orange fringe and adhere the first strip of words. Then measure out for the other two.
I added chipboard for stability as well as to help with hanging. To do this, I trimmed 2 - 1" chipboard strips. I aligned 1 of the chipboard strips to the already adhered words and marked and punched the holes. *Note: Small nail heads fit in the holes for easy hanging.
I also added a strip of pattern paper to the front side of the fringed bar.
Now for the candy boxes. Two of the patterned papers have pre-printed patterns for the boxes; the solid lines are for cutting, the dashed for scoring. Here's a tip: before cutting the scallop ends, score the dashed lines. Glue the side of the boxes, add your candy and confetti (Can't forget the confetti!). Close the ends of the boxes with twine.
Here is the complete setup!
I added tags to the candy shaped boxes from the cutout sheet and made additional tags out of the extra cupcake squares.
Yah celebrate! Cue the confetti and make a beautiful mess!
