I’d consider myself to be a semi-crafty person. I like crafting, to a degree. A little project here and there is fun, but too much of one, especially one that requires lots of precision and exact measurements, and I’m stressed out and frustrated. Because of this, when it comes to Lil’ CB’s birthday parties, I keep the crafting and DIY to a manageable minimum. I’ll throw together enough small projects to pull a theme together, but I’m definitely not one of those mommas that will fold and create hundreds of paper flowers for a backdrop! Don’t get me wrong — I adore that kind of decor and find it lovely, but I would probably walk away from that in tears and with cut up or burned hands… because in addition to being wary of difficult crafts, I tend to be on the klutzy side! ;)
Given all of that, the one DIY craft that has remained consistent for the three parties I’ve thrown for Lil’ CB is his birthday banner. It’s a simple enough craft where I can get it done in a few hours (or even less with some help!), but has enough of a presence to make a theme stand out. Let’s take a look back at Lil’ CB’s past birthday banners, shall we?
