{diy} Birthday Badge

First off, thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes.  I act like a little kid when it comes to my birthday, so I am looking forward to sharing all the details with you over the next few weeks.  To tie in with the backyard country party theme I decided to make myself a little birthday badge.  It seemed country horse-1st place badge-ish?

1. Start off with some crepe paper {all ruffled up} and a circle cut out of note paper {which I embellished with my sharpie and glitter glue}.  To ruffle up the crepe paper, there isn't a real technique or anything.  Just fold it until it makes a ruffle circle.

2. Next, glue on some pre-made ruffle or lace to the note paper.

3. Then glue that onto the crepe paper.

4. Take some ribbon and layer it on eachother.

5. Glue it onto a circle cut out of cardstock.  Glue underneath, on top, all over.  Then glue the crepe badge on top of it all.

6. Finish it off by gluing a pin onto the back.

And there you have it...every birthday girl deserves a birthday badge!
