In preparing for the first birthday I knew I wanted to make a Birthday Board.
A Birthday Board is a fun creation I saw on How Does She. I love their tutorials and I knew it would not be a problem putting it together! I figured I would include 12 holes so that I could include a picture from each month of Jake's first year rather than the balloons as pictured above.
While picking up crafting supplies for the party, I found an alternative to the 2x4. I found wood block picture holders. They had 2 wires to hold the pictures and I thought, oh what an easy way out! :) I picked up 7 blocks and a scrapbook birthday package with paper and stickers. For the rest of the project I followed How Does She's tutorial.
