Recently, I shared the PRINTABLE part of the Frozen Birthday banner. Today, I want to help you add some bling to your banner! If you have a Silhouette cutting machine then you will be able to open these files directly in the Silhouette Studio, insert the specialty paper you choose into your machine, and send the designs to cut within minutes!
I like to conserve paper, so I squeezed in as many letters as possible on the page, plus added a few snowflakes where I could easily fit them.
Secure the Glitter letters with a glue stick or glue dots
Punch holes at the top corners of each flag
String together with ribbon, string, or yarn of your choice
If you are using a lot of glitter cardstock like I did for my daughters Frozen 5th Birthday party, then I highly recommend cleaning your blade after cutting a few sheets. More than likely you will end up with a little build up of glitter, which will make it seem like the blade is dull.
Check out this tutorial here for how to clean the blade.
Do you want to make your own BLING designs using your Silhouette Cameo?

More details from the Frozen 5th Birthday Party are coming soon….food, activities, and more printable ideas!
Frozen Fever is still around! It doesn’t matter the time of year, if it is your little one’s birthday. Last April, my little girl turned 5 and we threw her a Frozen Party. I’ve been sharing bits and pieces of that party lately!
In one of my Tutorial Videos on how to Manipulate Text in Word to create Food/Drink Labels, I said I would be sharing the files to create the banner we used to decorate for our Frozen Fair. Today is finally the day!
If you want to create your own banner, and just want the background design you can click here to get just that page.
If you want the whole “HAPPY 5th BIRTHDAY”, along with Elsa & Anna as shown in the image at the top of this post then click here to get the set. This set does not include the Silver Glitter letters, which were created using my Silhouette Cameo. I will post the studio cut files for that and a quick tutorial later. As with most of my printables, they are formatted to be printed on 8.5 x 11 inch white cardstock paper.There are two letters per page, if you need another number besides 5 then you use the blank templates to create the number you need. The font is called Lullaby and the size was about 500.
If you are looking for coordinating invitations you can find this design in my Etsy shop here. There is also another listing in my shop if you would like me to customize it with your party details!
Well, I have another party to prepare for so I hope you enjoy this quick printable banner!
A few weeks ago, I showed you how to open one of my digital designs and add text to it using Microsoft Word. Today, I wanted to go one step further and give you 2 options for manipulating the text, so you can place it exactly where you want to on the page.
This particular tutorial showcases a set of Frozen food & drink labels I used for my daughter’s 5th birthday last year. I will leave a set of quick steps you can reference below if you are not into watching videos!
How to Add Text & Manipulate Text (Word Art) in Microsoft Word
Open a New Blank Word Document
Insert > Picture (and select the file you wish to open)
To adjust the margins: Page Layout Tab > Margins > Select Narrow (1/2 inch)
Crop white space border if needed
Resize the image to fill the page if needed
Insert > Word Art (and select the style you wish to use or just the basic, which you can add your own effects to later)
Type your text in the Word Art Box
Change the font style, color, and size
Right Click on the Text Box and choose FONT > Select the Advanced Tab > Adjust the Spacing or Kerning as you see fit
Right Click again and choose PARAGRAPH > Adjust the Line Spacing
I recommend starting with 0.8 to reduce the large gaps/white space between lines
Save and Print!!!
