And I've been loving the dang paper cutting machine ever since. My favorite purpose may just be the cutting of freezer paper for freezer paper stencils (so easy, so fast, so AWESOME!), but these little banners come just a smidge second.
I got this idea from Sara, who re-envisioned a Halloween banner she made with Amy Hughes (of Southern Utah University fame). Sara, of course, in her super-crafty way, put together 56 kits for an enrichment night. I have made only one.
You just cut the shapes and letters, glue the individual designs together with a glue stick, tie each set of two letters together with a longer ribbon, and embellish by tying shorter ribbons and pieces of tulle on to the junction.
Now, because of my obsession with the Cricut, I've also put together another Christmas banner kit (circles, letters, tulle and ribbons). Anyone who comments (just wish me Merry Christmas--such a fun phrase to say) can win it and make their own little string of festivity. Because our time before Christmas is short, I want to mail this on Saturday afternoon. Comment fast!
