Kissing Balls aka Pomanders (as seen here):
Super easy. Just like I like it. It became even easier for me because the original tutorial said to hand punch all the flowers, but I happen to have my sister's Cricut so I used that and just picked a cute flower and cute hundreds of them in various colors. I was going for hydrangea colors. They would be really cute with a ribbon loop attached so they could hang from a mantel or something too. hmmmm...
|Adding the flowers--I was fortunate to find pins that had pearlized heads at JoAnn's. So pretty!|
Unfortunately, my local dollar store didn't have anything that would work, so I headed to Wally-World and picked up these--all for $23!

Happy Birthday Banner:
So I wanted to make a cute Birthday Pennant Banner to go on my Holiday Tree. Here is what I came up with.
I went through my paper stash for cute patterned cardstock and then cut out the pennant shapes using the cricut.

I took some letter stickers I had in my stash and put them on coordinating colored cardstock. I used a pop-dot to adhear the letters to the pennant.
