A very sweet and dear friend of mine asked me (well I really begged her!) to make a birthday banner for her 2nd child's 1st birthday. She said she wanted to go with a Prince theme-I searched and searched and finally came up with the Paper Dolls cartridge for the Prince and the Dragon. The castle came from the Imagine Blast Off cartridge. I used the layer feature on the Imagine so that it would blend in with the layering of the Expression cuts. I used the Birthday Bash cartridge for the banners and the Mickey Font for the lettering (welded on the Gypsy) Provo craft if you are out there and listening....WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A PRINCE CARTRIDGE JUST FOR BOYS!!! I found plenty of princess ideas for the girls but when it came to the boys well...... the cartridges fell a little short.
I gave the dragon a google eye and added some bling using diamond stickles.
I love how the Imagine offers the option of layering. This castle was perfect!
I matched the yellow and blue paper to the paper plates my friend provided. I also used Spellbinders die-cuts for the circles and lacey circles.
This was a super fun and easy project to make. Now it is off to creating some Halloween projects for my boys, my students, and my co-workers. I hope you all have a chance to work on something fun this week!
