Baby Banner - Otto Christopher

I made a bug baby banner for my daughter's BFF, who is having her 1st baby (Otto Christopher), on July 4th. Her mom and dad painted a tree behind the crib and the room is a nature theme, so this will fit right in! It was actually difficult finding bugs, /there are so many flowers and butterflies out there, but very little bugs. I actually bought some plastic bugs for some.  Others are buttons and stickers, anything I could find. I stamped the tree, beehive, and the spiderweb.  If I had more time and could get to things in my craft room, I would have used more stamps in the background and probably would have stamped and cut out some of the bugs too, but time did not permit me to wait until I could get to things in my remodel of my room. The size of each card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Since I couldn't get to my Cricut cartridges, due to my moving of my craft room right now, I used my slice machine for the letters. I used the Basics Shapes #3 cartridge and did the shadow in orange and the letter in yellow. The size was 3 1/2 inches, which was perfect, but is a downfall of the Slice machine. That is the largest you can choose for this type of font. Click on each letter to get a closer look.


  1. This looks great! Banners are a ton of work and you did an excellent job :)

  2. Hi Tami, thanks for stopping by my blog the other day! It's great to meet new crafty ladies! I love this banner and all the little details you added. And ya... I always get sucked into the dollar stamps too! It's so hard to say no to them!
