Storybook fun

So I've started on my daughters 3rd Birthday and, YES I'm early, but there is so much to be done!

The theme this year is Cinderella...there was no way around it, she's obsessed with Lala. And for an added touch of fun and surprising details we will have a "Before the Ball' table as well as a 'Princess' table.

I thought it would be fun to do something with the storybook pages...so here is what I came up with.

1. Storybook - I bought the newer Golden Book version on Amazon for only a few dollars each copy
2. Card stock - the background of the pages
3. Tulle - to tie little knots in between each page of the story
4. Cording/Jute - to string your banner
5. Glue Dots - to adhere the storybook pages to the backing
6. Hole Punch - to punch 2 holes at the top to string together

 This banner has a burlap paper background that will be used on the 'Before the Ball' table, leaving the gold and glitter for the 'Princess' table.

These banners can be done with ANY storybook your child loves. You could also use them to hang in a child's room or a playroom. The ideas are endless... I know we plan on making another one with an old Frosty the Snowman book found at a garage sale to string on our Christmas Tree this year!
What stories will you make a banner of?
