This past weekend we held a baby shower for my daughter

and soon-to-be granddaughter Mae.

The theme was April Showers Brings Mae Flowers.

My daughter gave me full permission to do “my thing.”

Everything was pink and flowery. (I had fun.)

One of the decorations that I made was a banner with my granddaughter’s name.

It was a simple project that we used along with a few balloons and giant rosettes

to create a place to take photos.

  • Cut the scrapbook paper slightly larger than the wood banner pieces.
  • Place the scrapbook paper design side on the Xyron Creative Station®*
  • Turn the handle of the Creative Station to run the paper through.  As it runs through, it adds complete adhesive covering on the underneath side of the paper.

I wanted to keep the banner pieces simple. 

But you could add all kinds of flowers and embellishments to make it special.

How to make small pom-poms:

  1. Cut a small piece of matboard or cardboard approx. 2 inches. Loosely wrap the yarn around the matboard 50 times.
  2. Slide the wrapped yarn off the matboard and tightly tie the middle of the loops with a second piece of yarn.
  3. Cut all the loops with a pair of scissors. (Leave the second piece of yarn long.) Give the pom-pom a shake. Then the fun part, give the pom-pom a haircut, trimming all the ends the same size.

  • I added the banner pieces and wood beads onto a long piece of pink ribbon.
  • I spread the banner pieces to make room and tied the pom-poms directly onto the ribbon. Trim the long strings of the pom-poms.

I found these Cute Floral Pails* at Dollar Tree* and filled them with pansies. 

They were the perfect addition to our Spring themed baby shower.

I picked up these cute pink mugs at Hobby Lobby and used StyleTechCraft White Glossy Vinyl

to make the words for the Mom and Mae cups.

I used the Mom mug during the shower to hold pink cutlery.

It was so much fun planning this party.

I’ll be sharing more details of the shower soon.
