Geometric Baby Shower

baby shower collection BLOGWith the current chipboard promotion going on at Silhouette, I decided to use it to create a geometric baby shower. The colors of this shower can easily be switched out for a girl baby shower. You can also change the phrase on the banner to work with any party.

Oh Baby Banner + Piñata

The steps to making this banner are so simple, but adding the fringe to the letters does take a bit of time. In total it took me about 1 hour to make. The texture and statement the fringe gives to each piece makes it worth it.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Using your Silhouette machine, cut the “Oh Baby” banner out of Silhouette Chipboard
  2. Cut strips of tissue paper in 1″ wide strips. Fold in half so the width is now 1/2″.
  3. With the fringe scissors, cut the strips until just before the fold creating fringe. Straight scissors will work too
  4. Glue strips of fringe on each letter. Start at the bottom of the letter and work your way up layering them as you go.
  5. Trim around the letter cutting away the excess paper fringe.
  6. Glue the letter to the pennant.
  7. String all pieces together and hang.

Hexagon Box

I made these little boxes to hold each guests’ utensils as they went through the buffet line. I also tucked some small bite size candy bars in there for a fun surprise. These could also be used as party favors, or even as desk organizers in your office.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Cut hexagon box out of chipboard using your Silhouette. Cover with glue. A glue stick worked great.
  2. Place tissue paper over box, pressing firmly along edges to seal with the glue.
  3. Trim excess tissue paper off.
  4. Fold and assemble box. Embellish with twine and a fringe covered hexagon.

Fringe Banner

I was shocked at how fast I made this banner. I made it up as I went, and it turned out just how I imagined it in my head. I wish that were always the case. You will love how easy this is to whip up and it adds a big impart to your party.

Supplies:

  • Tissue Paper
  • Rotary Cutter and Mat
  • Sewing Machine

Instructions:

  1. Using your rotary cutter and mat, cut tissue paper into sections of about 10″ x 8″ folded. I wanted my colors to be a bit brighter so I doubled the tissue paper. Each triangle is one section with the fold at the top to give you two layers of tissue paper.
  2. Cut the shape of the triangle. I cut from the bottom center point out, stopping just 1/2″ from top fold.
  3. Cut fringe strips at desired width stopping about 1/2″ from top fold.
  4. Sew together in desired pattern.

I know this was a long post, but I wanted it to all be in one place to make it easier for you to find. I’d love to see pictures of ways you use this party.
