Rainbow Banner

Morning all.

As I mentioned before, I still have a really good relationship with my old work place. The young girl that replaced me had her little boy turning 4. He loves rainbows and was having a rainbow themed party. She had Googled and searched high and low for candy/treats and goodies. I had seen on various blogs, cute banners that sat above cakes with the birthday boy or girl's name on it. I offered to make one for Oliver in rainbow colours....of course. Cathy was kind enough to send me the following pictures.


And of course the magical work of art that was the inside......


The banner went together so very easily. It was held together with crochet cotton. I punched 1/16 inch circle holes through the top points of the flag and then threaded the cotton through.

Thanks for popping by.

Stuff Used:
CS: (SU) Whisper White and Optix Turquoise Card
Ink: (SU) Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun (ret), Pear Pizzaz, Bashful Blue, Almost Amethyst (ret) and Concord Crush
Stamps: Pennant Parade
Punches: Petite Pennants Builder Punch
Other bits: Cuttlebug Olivia Alphabet, 1/16" hand held circle punch, Crochet Cotton

Wow what a cute idea! I've not seen that before. As for the colourful cake layers, awesome. It must have taken ages to get that happening. Cheers Donna Zammit :)
