Birthday Party DIY Style

Thanks to Pinterest, I have tons of new DIY ideas.  So I decided that as I was planning for baby girl's first party I wanted to make a lot of the decorations.  I have been inspired by Pinterest but so far the 2 items that I have created have been all me.  I pulled out my Cricut and scrapbook paper and got busy cutting. 

First on the list was a "happy birthday" banner.  I am doing pink, blue, and purple for her colors so I used those colors to cut out 2 overlaying "frames" and then the letters.  I used just stick glue to put the 2 frames together and then glued the letters on.  After that I painted on a layer of Mod Podge to seal it.  With just a layer on the front the paper edges started to curl up.  After they had dried for about 15 minutes I decided to paint another layer on the back in hopes that it would help the curling edges.  And it worked like a charm!

Next, was time for my cupcake toppers.  I had already cut pink circles, small cupcakes, and number 1s all using my cricut.  This time instead of using glue, I only used Mod Podge.  I put a layer on the circle, added the cupcake, put another layer, added the 1, and finished it off with a final layer.  All that is left to do now is to add some sticks or toothpick and ta-da!
