The project that got my wheels spinning for the blue floral theme at my cousin’s baby shower was the ‘Oh Baby’ banner. I used the geometric banner as a template since I created them at the same time, but knew it was going to have a very different look based on my paper choices and the addition of the paper flowers.

‘Oh Baby’ Banner
What you’ll need:
- Gray card stock (3 12″x12″ pieces)
- White card stock (3 12″x12″ pieces)
- Gold glitter card stock (1 12″x12″ sheet)
- 3 shades of blue card stock (1 12″x12″ sheet each)
- 2 shades of green card stock (1 12″x12″ sheet each)
- Cricut Maker
- Hot glue gun
I used my basic banner template and updated the colors to be the gray / white background and then each letter in gold glitter. Then I inserted several of the poppy flowers to my canvas and changed to color to be 3 different shades of blue, 1 per banner piece and 3 on the separator.
When everything is set on the canvas, cut all the pieces out. Assemble the flowers according to the directions and then glue all the letters & flowers to the banner pieces.
Finally, thread some twine throughout the pieces to link the pieces into 1 banner. I hung it up in my office before the shower to see what it looked like with my larger flowers and the DIY onesie station.
At the shower, we put the banner on a wall above all the food, which paired nicely with the food place cards we had set out that I matched to the banner.
This is currently my favorite banner that I’ve created (I know I’ve said this before, haha). I love how the flowers added another element and some depth to the banner, plus it gave it a way to tie into other aspects of the shower!
