DIY Party Streamers for Cake Smash Backdrop


The Silhouette Cameo Project Takeover continues!

I have been prepping and making decor for my baby’s first birthday and her cupcake smash!! No cake smash is complete with out a fun backdrop. Since baby’s birthday falls around easter I am planning a bunny inspired tea party with a pastel-ish color pallet (plus glittery gold)! To create these custom streamers I used vellum, a printer and my silhouette cameo. Silhouette Cameo Party Streamers

In order to get the right colors I chose to print on vellum paper. I drew large rectangles the size of my paper and filled them with my colors (one color per sheet). I used 4 colors and printed about 25 sheets total. Then I used my silhouette to cut out bunnies and triangles.

I was able to cut 2 sheets at a time using my 12×24 inch mat. I just placed my paper side by side. I didn’t bother weeding out the tiny dots, they just made it easier to insert my needle through the vellum. I used an embroidery needle and fishing line to string together the shaped. Looping around the bottom edge twice helped keep each shape in place.

Of corse I will share how the cake smash turns out but for now here is a sample set up of the streamers with other party decor I have been working on. Silhouette Cameo Party Streamers-3 Silhouette Cameo Party Streamers-4
