choo choo banner

June 5, 2010

one of my favorite guys is turning 3!
my nephew brayden is having a "choo choo" party.
i wanted to make something special for the party so i put together this banner.

all the pieces were cut on the cricut using 
"mini monograms"
the engine and caboose were just bigger squares.  
then i cute the engine shape from the square.

i think the coal is super cute!
i just cut out a scalloped square (a little smaller than the train car)
 and then cut the square in half and glued it so that just the scallops show.

happy birthday brayden!

  2. Very cute! What a great idea for a birthday banner. I made one with just letters last year, but putting the name on the train is great!

  3. Aw, this is so cute! The coal is my favorite part, too. I bet your nephew loved it!
