For my project today, I made a banner.

For this banner, I used Rhinestone Resin Self Adhesive Sticker Sheets from The Buckle Boutique for my letters.  You can find them HERE.  You can also find a discount code good today through December 2, 2013!

I used my cricut to cut the sticker sheets.

I used Winter Woodland and sized the letters to 3 inches.  I reversed my images because I cut the sticker sheets face down.

Cutting on the cricut is not hard but you need to remember a few tips:

You need the deep cut blade and housing set to 5.  A sharp blade works best.
A sticky mat is a must (re-stick if necessary).  I usually tape the edges, but if your letter has a lot of details you want it to stick down pretty good!!
Place the sticker sheet bling side down on your mat (don't forget to reverse your image).
Cut - I only cut once.
Gently pop out your cut.

I inked Wilton doilies with Dirty Martini Dylusions Ink.  Once dry, I adhered it to my banner flag.  My banner flag is chipboard covered in Christmas paper.  I paint the edges of the banner flags to finish the look.

I finished it off with gold glitter tulle.  I really like how it turned out!!
Thank you so much for stopping by!!
