Well, enough of that and on to my project! I had an absolute blast putting this one together. I had seen Halloween banners on various blogs before and knew what I wanted it to look like so I went through my 2 Halloween Cricut cartridges. I went with using Happy Hauntings.
Here is what I used:
- Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge
- Bazzill cardstock
- Colorbok black glitter paper
- CTMH black sheer ribbon
- Zig 2-way glue pen
- Elmer's adhesive runner
- EK Success pop dots
I decided to use the word "Boo" and wanted a frame around each letter so I went through the cartridge book and picked the Headless Horseman frame (Frame8), but instead of using it horizontal I turned it vertical. I cut it out at 8" and after I glued the two frames together and cut the pumpkin off that would of normally have been on the top (now side). I then cut the capital letter "B" out of the black glitter paper at 4". I was surprised and quite wowed! when it cut so beautifully. I didn't want the o's to be cut according to the size of the "B" so I used the Real Dial Size button and cut them out at 3". After gluing it all together I decided that it needed another color and so I used the Real Dial Size button again and cut the pumpkin, on the same page, at 2" in orange. I used a pop dot to put the pumpkin on with. For the rest of the adhesive, I used the Zig pen to put the two frames together. I then used the tape runner the place the letters on.
After, I took the ribbon and strung it through all the frames and vola! I have a Hallowwen Banner :) I truly hope you enjoy this as much as I did making it. Have a good night!
