Aidan turned 1 last Friday! i made him a banner with his name on. something light and not as fragile to bring to my sister's in UK where we celebrated his 1st birthday. more on it on our other blog aidantje.

We didnt go for any theme in particular. i just thought it'd be nice to have a mix of everyone's choice. but i quite like a sailor-ish kind of theme. found an anchor cookie mold at one of the baker's shop in Mannheim, Germany last month. for those who cant really draw and dont have steady hands like me, these molds acts as useful templates.
Downloaded some alphabets templates (they are really really useful for almost every craft!), cut them up, paste them on a contrasting paper, stick on your anchor and use those tiny little pegs which i love so much to hang them up on the rafia string.
We hung the banner at my sister's living room with another birthday banner they bought us together with a couple of helium filled ballons (which baby Ferran love so much!) Now that we're back home, i'm gonna hang them up in Aidan's room, hopefully he will know how to spell his own name soon!
A keepsake, something we can keep and hopefully Aidan can show it to his children one day, telling them that this was what their oma did for him on his eerste verjaardag!
