#96 Blackletter - More Pirate Party Decor

Hi everyone! Yesterday, my son had his 4th birthday party. He had such a great time! I thought I would show you the banner and birthday cake I made for his party.

The cake was so fun to decorate!

The letters were cut from fondant and the ship was cut from gum paste using the Cricut Cake machine. The ship was cut at 5.5" from Wrap it Up and the letters were cut at 2" from Blackletter. The skulls were made using molds and Wilton candy melts.

For the banner, I used the Imagine with the Buccaneer cartridge to create the 4.25" pennants (from Birthday Bash). The letters were cut at 3.39" from the Blackletter cartridge ( the PERFECT pirate font! :-)). I sized the letters on my Gypsy for the uppercase letters to fit perfectly. The four images between the words are from the Buccaneer cartridge. Each pennant was attached using twine.

Hope you like my projects!
