Celebration Mini Banners

Today is my youngest daughters Sweet 16 Birthday. We always decorate a bit for the birthday boy or girl in our family with some crepe paper and a painted wood sign that says Happy Birthday. I wanted something a little more special since 16 is such a big birthday, after all you are old enough to get a real job, get a drivers license and in our home your finally old enough to date. I just took two sheets of 12x12 cardstock and made the base for my mini banner.
Then I decided on the new Quickutz Teriyaki Cookie Cutter font for my message.
Add a few other diecuts and colors and there you have it. This idea would be great for any celebration and costs very little and personalizes the occasion.

I put this up on our fireplace mantle with some Sticky Tac so I can slip this into her scrapbook when I'm done with no tape marks to tear the cardstock.

What a fun idea! And I love how you made it 12x12 so you can put it into the scrapbook later!!
