Non-Traditional Halloween Banner
Video Instructions Too!!
By Jennifer, The Cricut Diaries
Hi, I am Jennifer from Cricut Diaries, and I wanted to make something a little non-traditional. So I made a Halloween banner. It is non-traditional because of the colors! It would also make a great fall banner if you didnt want to use the word BOO, just change it to FALL or put leaves, pumpkins...etc. To make the banner, this is the supply list.
3 different colors of card stock. ( I used 1 pattern paper, 2 solid papers)
Country Life, SongBird, Once Upon a Princess carts ( can be subsittuted if you dont have those)
Tim Holtz distressed ink
gypsy( still do-able with out a Gypsy)
Directions: Cut 3 banner flags at 10.5 inches. Cut 3 banner flags at 8.5 inches. Cut Lettering at 2.5 inches, shadow and regular. Cut solid squares at 3.5 inches ( this is what I put my lettering on) Then ink all edges. Layer them together, add flowers, pearls, or what ever embellishments you want. Thread ribbon through banner, and its done! I used my gypsy to hide the contours on the banners, but if you dont have one, you can still just cut the banners out because after you layer everything, the shapes on the banners will be covered up!! Thanks so much for looking!!
