Minnie Mouse 1st Birthday Banner

 Cricut Cartridge Used: Mickey and Friends and Mickey Font

 Each 6"x6" chipboard square was hand-painted and stamped with acrylic paints.
This was a mini-banner made as a bonus.

Western/Cowboy Themed Baby Shower Banner

 I really enjoyed making this banner.  It was a custom order for a baby shower.  I was told that the expected baby boy's nursery was decorated western themed all the way down to having wagon wheels put on his crib!  What a fun idea!
 I panicked at first because I could not find brown cow print paper anywhere.
The buyer was specific about the brown cow print...  
Then I realized I could just PAINT the pattern. Duh. 
I used twine and barbed wire printed ribbon to add more to the look as well as red bandana scrapbook paper.
I love how it turned out.
I even found this adorable boot and star clip art already installed on my Cricut. Perfect.

I love making banners for all occasions!
