Dana Made It when I was done looking for the freezer paper stencils. I couldn't resist thinking I would make these ruffled streamers for Maeve's birthday.
Well, the day of her birthday arrived and I still hadn't made them, so I had pretty much given up on the idea. The thing in our house used to be that when the kids went to bed, "Mr. Birthday" came and decorated the house as a surprise when they woke up. I think Mr. Birthday goes on hiatus when dad is gone away on a 2 week+ business trip out of the country.
I felt pretty guilty that I did not really decorate for her birthday, so at 12:00, I went up to the sewing machine to try out a batch. OMG- awesomeness!!!! One line turned into three - I had to stop so I could run to pick up the ballooons, but when I came back, I belted out so many more. It was just so darn easy and fun.
All I did was take two colors of streamers and stick a pencil through the centers of the rolls:
Who ever knew sewing paper could be so fun!
