Scalloped, personalized birthday banner

I was asked by a birthday client if I would create a banner for her one-year-old son, and here it is! 


It's my first strung banner and I'm pleased with how it turned out using a shimmering silver scallop design and black/white images of her little one.


It was a little time-intensive handcrafting every scallop and circle, but the end design was worth it. 

Thank goodness her son has a short name, though.  If it was something alpha-hefty like "CHRISTOPHER," I would have thrown in the towel.  Ha ha, kidding!  Email me if you're interested in having a custom banner of your very own.
