Nothing says “Celebrate” more than cute party hats, right? And the new Party Hats Border Maker Cartridge, combined with one of our beautiful designer collections, takes the party to the next level!
Here, I’ve made some Party Time borders using both the bold, fun, colourful Cake My Day collection and the soft, warm and playful Woodland Whimsy collection. Two totally different takes, but the party hats all say “Celebrate”!
TIP: I’ve made a “Title Box” for each border. You may use them along with the border on your page layout, or you may instead choose to create a card instead! Simply adhere onto folded cardstock, and you have a cute Birthday card to give.
