Boo Banner (Cricut DIVA)
Hello Divas! I am sharing my Halloween Banner today at Cricut DIVA!!
I know it is a little early, but Halloween is my very favorite holiday and I start early every year with my decorations!!!
Today I made a BOO Banner to share with you. I used my Gypsy and Cricut Expression to decorate my it.
I used BOO! from CTMH Artiste sized to 2 inches. I used Hide Contour to hide the inside cuts and the "!". I cut this out of glitter cardstock. When I use glitter cardstock, I reverse the image (I am showing the original image here) and place my cardstock glitter side down. I use multi-cut 2. When I am done, I wash my mat with dish soap and a scrubbie to get the glitter off.
I cut these 3D flower shapes from CTMH Art Philosophy sized to 5 inches. I rolled them up with my McGill tweezers and used liquid glue on the center to hold them together.
I needed something to mount the letters on. I cut this image from Teresa Collin's Chic and Scary sized to 3 inches. I used Hide Contour to hide the inside cuts (oval and witch hat).
I used papers from my Halloween stash for all of my cuts.
I cut the triangles out of chipboard. I traced and cut the paper to fit. It was later (after I cut the paper) that I thought to cut everything out on the cricut.... at least I only had 3 banner flags!!
After I adhered the green paper to the banner flags, I used black acrylic paint to paint the edges.
Here is a close up of the 3D flower that I rolled up. You can also see that I pop-dotted the letters onto the orange paper.
I finished the banner off with some orange ribbon.
I hope you have as much fun decorating for Halloween (or fall) as I do!!!
