Springtime is here; Summer is soon to follow. Birthdays and 4th of July are special events deserving of a banner to shout out our best wishes for a great celebration! Below are two examples and inspirations for celebrating by giving a "shout out" with die-cut banners.
For the Birthday banner, I chose five shades of cardstock and layered the background with two; then mixed up the remaining three colors for the letters. You can cut the letters as big as you like and then cut out the background papers accordingly. I have noticed that many Cricut cartridges have a cupcake design and you can top the cupcake with a heart, cherry, berry, or mix it up with something to match the birthday theme.
For the 4th of July banner, I cut little strips of paper and glued one to the top edge of each letter. Each strip was then folded into a loop over the cording and adhered to the back of the letter to secure. The little paper hooks were included with the die-cut I used for the stars, but you can substitute ribbons for the paper hooks.
Hope you are enjoying this time of year. I have visions of picnics and outdoor parties dancing through my head! Wishing for you some great times in the sunshine!
