I've officially decided that I love giving birthdaybanners as gifts. I signed up for a crafting swap of sorts with some friends earlier this year. One of these friends I have known since junior high, and reconnected with in the past couple of years. I realized that both of her childrens' birthdays were in April, so I decided to make them a birthday banner.
The construction is the same as previous banners: applique'd letters, double-sided banner pieces, and bias tape as the ribbon.
