I found some adorable birthday banners on Etsy, but I couldn't justify spending the money on them when I knew I could make them myself in a relatively short amount of time. I made these last month (before the Cricut came to live in our home.) So, these are all printed and hand cut pieces. Each letter is 3 layers: black cardstock, red cardstock, white cardstock with printed black letters. If I were to make them again, it should be much easier and can use the Cricut to cut the letters for me. I chose to string all of the letters for each banner on one ribbon to prevent undue stress points. I will say that hand-tying 3 layers of ribbon between each letter took more time than I anticipated.
