1st birthday photo shoot idea - paper pennant banner, big bowl of Os

I took a few photos for our littlest guy’s 1st birthday. I set him up in our dining room to use the floor and the wall as a backdrop, and made sure we were close to the windows to get lots of awesome natural light.

For a simple background I hung up the paper party banner that I made, and for about 3.5 seconds (ha!) I was able to get a couple of shots with the fabric party hat I also made.

I’m making a few things for our Little Guy’s 1st Birthday.

I started with a fabric party hat, and made a matching pennant banner with cardstock paper and a clothesline rope.

Here’s what I used…

SUPPLIES:

  • scrapbook paper or cardstock
  • paper hole punch
  • string or rope (I used a 3/16″ braided clothesline)
  • optional – paper trimmer (for cutting triangles)
  • scissors

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Make a triangle-shaped template. I printed a triangle shape from Microsoft Word then cut it out.
  2. Trace triangle shapes on the paper/cardstock. I traced them on the back of the paper so the lines wouldn’t show.
  3. Cut out the triangles and punch a hole in each top corner.
  4. Thread the string/rope through the holes and hang.
