This year with our family back in Oklahoma I wanted to somehow make them apart of Matt’s Birthday last week…..so I put my large alien-dome head to good use and got a GREAT idea!!!
Custom Family Birthday Banner!!
About a month before Matt’s Birthday I came up with the plan…..I emailed out all our family members and assigned everyone a letter which will spell out HAPPY BIRTHDAY MATT~ I told everyone to pose with, make or find their letter and email/text me the picture!
There were only 2 rules:
1. You HAVE to be in the picture and yes, animals are allowed in with you.
2. You have 2 weeks to get this done!
Our family did NOT disappoint……..from Matt’s Dad spelling out the letter H with dirt bike boots to my sister using her body to spell the T after she did a fun “Color Run”!!!!! I then sent all the pictures to CVS to print them in 5×7 but you could do any size!! And yes, I did have to wait to start building until Matt left on business for the week!! When I laid out all the pictures it filled my heart with warmth. *warm fuzzies*
It was really simple how I put it together and it can be done many ways.
~I hole-punched each picture then using red tulle to tie the pictures to a black ribbon!
I hung these banners right on the hallway wall you see when you walk into our house…..the first thing Matt saw when he got home from a business trip on his Birthday!!! I was so pleased with how it turned out and how wonderful everyone one was by participating!
This way I told Matt all our loved ones were here to wish him Happy Birthday!!!! Here is a IPhone video I took so you could see a better view up close! And please ignore my “guilty pleasure” Dr Phil on in the background!
Until next year folks!!!!!
