If you have some time today, and are, too, having people over to your home and need a quick little banner... I made this in about 15 minutes:
I found this idea via Miss Martha Stewart - of course! She has the numbers in a template you can print out, but I just free handed it. Here's how I did it:
Started with a cardboard box (from Christmas gift) and cut along the creases and got 4 equal size pieces to free hand the numbers in block letter form onto:
Then I cut out the numbers (if using cardboard, sharp scissors help!), get some tinsel garland (I got mine from Target on sale for $1.50, or you can piece together whatever is left from Xmas) and a stapler:
So tomorrow is 2011. What are your plans tonight to celebrate the year change? What about tomorrow - anything special? I'm starting my January 100 mile goal tomorrow. Going to hit the gym and aim for 4-5 miles on the treadmill (walk/jog). You can still join the 100 miles in 1 month fitness challenge for some fun motivation along with all these other great people!
Happy New Year to you ALL! xoxox, MeggyD
