Happy Birthday, Sis!

Today is my sister G's birthday - I won't embarrass her by mentioning just how old she is, but suffice to say, she's older than me!

Instead of a card I made her a tiny paper bunting banner, sewn together with bias binding. Each little triangle is cut from tissue paper (doubled) and is just over 2 inches high. I'm ridiculously pleased with this and love its smallness.


To finish off, on the very last triangle I wrote a little message from me. Happy birthday G, can't wait to see you next week!

You are just the kind of person who would do that for her sister and not think that was too much work. How lovely of you. Lucky sister!

What a great idea - a lovely alternative to a card and SO much nicer than the tacky birthday banners you get in shops!

What a great way to send birthday greetings and I'm sure your sister was delighted to receive it.

Happy birthday G!

And the paper bunting banner is fabulous. Would it be okay if I borrowed your idea for my sister's birthday next year? It would be perfect for mailing to America!
