This milestone photo banner is so easy to make. You will create a beautiful photo display for your child’s birthday party as well as a keepsake to treasure from years to come.
Let me show you how to make this adorable milestone photo banner. It is such a precious paper craft. You can grab the files and (part 1) video tutorial for the plain banner here on my blog.

- Cardstock Paper
- Printable Sticker Labels
- String (Hobby Lobby)
- Cutting Mat
- Cricut Roller
- Cricut Explore Air
- Milestone Banner (you can get this free file in my resource library)
Tip: Use credit card to scrape small pieces of cardstock off of the mat. Place a tape all around the end of the string to better assist you inserting the string on the hole of the cardstock.
Cut all the pieces with your cutting machine using my free cut files (they are in my free resource library — request and get the password at the bottom of this post).
Note: I used the print then cut feature into Design Space for the photos to be printed and cut, see tutorial here.
Stack the cardstock on a monthly order.
And with the printed photos next to me, the images are lined up from left to right, down, then left to right, then down. This works for me, this way I am not all over the place.
As you can see, just place the photo sticker on top of the cardstock and press from the top then bottom. Repeat until you’re finish.
And VOILA! Aren’t these adorable? Imagine using glitter cardstock on these?! Oh my! I added a gold string to this banner and hung it in my craft room. It’s bitter-sweet but it sure brings a big smile to my face 😀
You can resize and cut the files however you’d like, it is up to you. Just make sure to share it for all of us to see. I hope that you enjoy making these as much as I have. Let me know what you think and you have a great day! Happy Crafting!
Hey friend, PIN IT, if you LOVE IT! <3 😀
