Free Sock Monkey Birthday Printables: Banner

We didn't have a party for Jude's birthday this year, we just took him to his favorite play place in the mall, let him eat McDonald's french fries for lunch, and then had the only meal he'll eat (spaghetti) for dinner. In spite of not having a party, I intended to decorate like it was a big deal anyway. I still wanted the day to feel special.

So, I made a few printable decorations, which I've decided to share here. The first thing I'm sharing is the "happy birthday" banner:
The banner flags come two to a page, so they are approximately 8 inches tall. All you have to do is cut them out, punch holes or cut slits in the top corners, and thread them with string, yarn, twine, ribbon, or whatever suits your fancy.

I, of course, went a little overboard once I decided to share the decorations online, so be watching in the next several days for more sock monkey decorations, including:
I also made all of these files in girl colors for a friend of mine, and I'll share all of that with you as well.

Please let me know if you use my decorations, I'd love to see pictures! Also, if you would like anything more personalized with your child's name, age, or different colors, feel free to email me and for a very, very small fee, I can probably hook you up.

  3. thanks so much for posting all of your printables! i love them...and they're perfect for my son's first birthday party. however, i printed out the banner and it appears that the "HA" are in the wrong colors? I can easily use the "h" from the other sheet, but there isn't a red "a"? is there any chance you could re-post the "HA" please? thanks again so much - these are adorable!

  12. Thank you so much for sharing. Would you happen to have the thank you card with a white background? I LOVE the blue but am afraid it will take too much ink =)
