Banners for Foster Kids Birthday Party's
Hi! Welcome to Foster Kids Birthday Party's Blog Hop! Here is a bit of background info from Jennifer about the hop:
Many of you may be familiar with CardMonkey's awesome banner hops for kids. I was so inspired by them that I wanted to find another opportunity to do good with my crafting. I happened upon a volunteer at Birthday Magic at a work event & followed up with them. They loved the idea of handmade birthday banners, so I put out the call and I was lucky to have 15 awesome crafters join me! So today you will get to see everyone's creations!
If you've never heard of Birthday Magic, you can see their site here -
BirthdayMAGIC is a program of the Volunteer Center of Sacramento, which provides personalized monthly birthday parties to children currently living in Sacramento area homeless shelters, transitional living facilities, community programs or residential treatment centers.
The goal of BirthdayMAGIC is to brighten the lives of children by providing fun, meaningful and memorable birthday parties during what can be an awkward and challenging experience in their lives.
Each month, children living in these shelters will celebrate birthdays – through financial support, volunteer help and the BirthdayMAGIC program, these wonderful children will receive a birthday party thrown in their honor.
For more information on sponsoring a party please contact us at email@example.com or call (916) 567-3100.
I'm looking forward to dropping off all the amazing banners for them to use in the parties!
So now, sit back & enjoy all the great banners!!!
The guidelines we were given for the banners were:
Suitable for ages 3-12
I chose bright colours and decided on a Disney theme as all kids love Disney and it's suitable for both boys and girls.
I cut the triangle pennants using my Spellbinders Nested Lacey Pennants but had to cut two shapes for each pennant to ensure that it was sturdy enough.
The letters for happy birthday were cut at 4", using my Slice machine.
I used my 'Mickey' punch by EK Success to add the 'Disney' element.
All the materials used were from my stash.
