Sparkly Congratulations Banner

My wonderful friend, Hillary, got engaged a few weeks ago, and I couldn't find a "Congratulations on your Engagement" card I felt proud sending. The ones I looked through were either too impersonal or too ooey-gooey and schmaltzy.  Instead, I took a trip to the craft store for some sparkly, glittery paper to make her a banner!


-Fifteen squares of turquoise paper (2 x 2 inches)

-Fifteen squares of sparkly blue paper (2.5 x 2.5 inches)

-Fifteen scalloped hearts (scalloped heart punch)

-Glittered alphabet stickers

-Gold, glittered baker's twine

-1/8 inch hole punch

-Glue stick

I finished the banner with the initials of the bride and groom to be -- H and M.

I love that the banner is not only a fun acknowledgement of her happy news, but can be re-used for Bridal Showers, Engagement Parties, Bachelorette  Parties, or Rehearsal Dinners!
