DT Post by Heather - Birthday Cake Decor!

Good morning! Heather here from Houses Built of Cards to share a special project with you! Today is my youngest daughter's 9th birthday, so I have birthday's on my mind today for sure! This isn't her cake though, but a cake I made and decorated this past week for a good friend:

I created my banner by using Tiny Banners and Toppers Metal Dies, and cutting the larger size banners on a folded piece of white cardstock, which allowed me to hang them over my twine. I then cut the smaller size banners in different colors, as well as the cute toppers, and adhered them all together. I used Small Alphabet Metal Dies to create my "happy birthday" sentiment. 

Finally, I folded them over some Black Twinery Twine and glued them together, and attached them to some skewers pushed into the cake to hold them up. (I also added a dot of glue to the twine where it tied on the skewer so my banners didn't land in my frosting!)

All in all, it took a while, but was a relaxing and enjoyable way to spend a Sunday afternoon - so I didn't mind! Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you have a wonderful day!
