DIY Birthday Banner

This week my friend Brooke’s twin girls turned one. Naturally she wanted a girly celebration, so one afternoon we threw together this garland (with lots of help from Katie).

First, we printed off the letters we needed and cut them in circles. Next we glued the edges and dipped them in glitter. While they were drying we cut out bigger circles out of card stock and folded them in half, again and again until we had this accordion look. Then we simply hot glued the letters onto the folded card stock, and then them onto ribbon.
