Check Out This Adorable Name Banner I Made For My Niece!

Name Banner The other day I decided to whip out my Silhouette Cameo and make a name banner for one of my nieces, Kaylyn! I think this banner turned out so good! She is a girly girl, and loves her pinks and purples. She is a huge fan of butterflies, so I thought it would be fun to make some that hold the banner up! I am extremely happy with the way it turned out, and she loved it so much! 

Name Banner I added some bling to the circles, and glitter to the little butterfly on each side of the banner! I used a plain cream color string but if you wanted to create it you can use whatever you would like! I just wanted it to not be that noticeable!

I bought the banner images and butterfly in the Silhouette Store. I am such a fan of the Cameo, it makes doing fun crafts like this so easy! I have wanted one for years and finally got one at the end of last year!! So I am still learning how to use it but I think I am getting the hang of it pretty good!

Craft Items for Name Banner I picked out three prints to use for the front of banner, and then did just plain solid scrapbook paper for the back of it!  I used glue dots and a glue stick to get the papers to stick to each other and secure the string!

Assembling BannerAfter I got my banner designs printed, I start to assemble it. I put glue dots on the four corners, then took the glue stick and applied it through the center and edges and then stuck the designed letter on top and made sure it was stuck well.

Assembling BannerI got some jewels that had sticky backs and stuck them to the circles to give it a little more bling! I found the jewels at our local scrapbook store, they were only a couple dollars each!

Butterfly ImageI then printed out my butterflies. I bought a set of them that were different sizes like you see above. I printed one full set out for purple and one full set of pink, and then I inter-changed them to make them more noticeable on the way. I just glued them with a glue stick together. Then added some modge podge to the smallest butterfly only, and then added glitter and allowed them to dry!

Kaylyn Bedroom Name BannerI added Command strips to the back of the butterflies, so they would stick to the wall easily without having to make a whole with a nail! They are one of my favorite products now to hang pictures and such!!! It truly makes like SO much easier!! Hope you all love the banner!

    That looks so pretty! I’m not into crafts too much, unless they are super simple, but I’m going to email this post to my crafty friend. She has a Cameo and would love to make this for her nephew.

    This is so cute and I bet she loved it! I won some of those glue dots and I had so much fun using them. They came 2 days before my daughters baby shower so my sister used them to hang up the decorations. The shower was a huge success! She got tons of cool baby stuff. I won about $400 worth of baby stuff and gave her all of it. She knew about the breast pump b/c I had to tell her so she wouldn’t put it on her registry. It’s the nice evenflo one,like $130. Her friend threw a shower for just their friends and the women she works with also gave her a shower at work. She got 3 showers and has everything she needs for the first 6 months. She knows how blessed she is. This baby is going to be so LOVED & SPOILED. LOL!!
