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
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!
