Cars 2 Banners DIY

Ethan wanted to have Cars 2 theme for his birthday celebration. It was two weeks before his birthday so I thought since we had so much time, why not make our own Cars 2 banner? I didn’t know THEN that we can easily buy them for under RM20 in Toys R Us! >_<

Anyway, Ethan did checked prints using Excel. We printed lots and lots of them since the ink so cheap only (so I thought!)

I cut the checked printouts into triangle.

Ethan printed out these Cars 2 characters and I helped him cut them out.

He helped to paste them onto the checkered triangle sheet.

We ran a string into the banners and they are ready to be hung in the Studio.

The banner hung nicely in our Studio. Sadly, that is the ONLY thing we did to rave up the studio according to Cars 2 theme coz after that, we were overwhelmed with events to make anything else….

    Choi Yen,

    I said “so I thought”… I thought the ink is cheap coz William got it for me and I did not bother to ask how much until I ran out of it and needed to get another…
