Wacky Wishes - PP113

A clean and simple banner project, a challenge hosted by the Paper Players, is the inspiration for today's card.  Banners are all the rage these days in all shapes and sizes.  Mine are petite, but the bright colors announce a big birthday celebration going on.

The finished little banners measure 1-1/2" from the front, but first I cut 2" x 3/4" strips, cut the "V" with a corner punch, ran them through the Polka Dot Embossing Folder, then scored them at 1-1/2" so I could fold the top over the Baker's Twine and glue it.  The cupcake is from the Itty Bitty Bits set and punched out with the circle from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack.  Dimensionals were used on the banner and the cupcake.

The bottom corners each have some decorative paper piercing to add a little detail.  The new Paper Piercing Pack Essentials is a great tool for this.
