Banners For Foster Kids Birtday Parties Blog Hop - November 17


Banners for Foster Kids Birthday Partys Blog Hop


Hi! Welcome to Foster Kids Birthday Party's Blog Hop! Many of you may be familiar with CardMonkey's awesome banner hops for kids... I was so inspired by them that I wanted to find another opportunity to do good with my crafting. I happened upon a volunteer at Birthday Magic at a work event & followed up with them. They loved the idea of handmade birthday banners, so I put out the call and I was lucky to have 15 awesome crafters join me! So today you will get to see everyone's creations!


If you've never heard of Birthday Magic, you can see their site here -

BirthdayMAGIC is a program of the Volunteer Center of Sacramento, which provides personalized monthly birthday parties to children currently living in Sacramento area homeless shelters, transitional living facilities, community programs or residential treatment centers.

The goal of BirthdayMAGIC is to brighten the lives of children by providing fun, meaningful and memorable birthday parties during what can be an awkward and challenging experience in their lives.

Each month, children living in these shelters will celebrate birthdays – through financial support, volunteer help and the BirthdayMAGIC program, these wonderful children will receive a birthday party thrown in their honor.

For more information on sponsoring a party please contact us at info@volunteersac.org or call (916) 567-3100.

I'm looking forward to dropping off all the amazing banners For them to use in the parties!

So now, sit back & enjoy all the great banners!!!

Here's the entire lineup in case you get lost!

Here is the banner I made for this blog hop, and to send to the children.

It was kind of hard to take the picture of this project since the banner was so long.  But, I think you can get a good idea of what it would look like straightened out.  :)

For this banner I used basic shapes from my Cricut Imagine, and the two bears were made from the new Criscut Lite Cartridge, "Teddy Bear Parade."

Please become a follower of my blog, leave a happy message, and a way that I may contact you.  I will be giving away a RAK to a randomly number generator winner!!!
