I hosted a baby shower for my dear friend Elizabeth this weekend in Charlottesville. I wanted a way to display baby pictures of the parents-to-be and Flannery suggested making a photo garland/banner! I found some inspiration on Etsy (of course!) and headed to Michael's. I love the Martha Stewart collection at Michael's - she seems to have exactly what I need, no matter what the craft is. If you need a cheap, easy & quick decoration for any type of event, this is the craft for you!
Here's what I ended up purchasing:
1/8" white satin ribbon
1/8" hole punch
Martha Stewart's "Mat Pad"
Martha's (we're on a first name basis) Mat Pad comes in various themes & colors. I chose the baby boy pack. They are the perfect size to mat 4x6 photos and there are 24 pieces in each pack.
So, I glued each of the baby pictures on a piece of paper. I hole punched two holes at the top of each paper and then strung them on the ribbon! I made two garland's - one with pictures hanging vertically and one with pictures hanging horizontally. I alternated photos of Elizabeth & Andrew. It took me no more than an hour - EASY!!! If I do say so myself, they turned out pretty adorable.
