Banner from Cricut Birthday Bash

I recently moved my craft room to my daughter's old room.  Since it is painted with very pretty neutral colors I am not going to paint as I was going to have to do in my son's old room.  I could never get in the mood to paint that room so I never decorated it.  Now ... I can finally decorate! :)  Once I get everything organized I will post pictures, but for now, here is a banner I made for my window.

Pictures are kind of hard to see, but you can click to enlarge and see much more detail. :)
Banner is from the Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge and cut at 7 1/2".  

To create the burlap bows I cut a strip of burlap and folded each edge over thin floral wire and secured with hot glue.  Then I could easily shape it into a bow.

Letters are from Don Juan and cut at 4"

Ovals are from George and Basic Shapes and cut at 4 1/2".  Then embossed with the Cuttlebug Floral Fantasy embossing folder.

Pattern CS is from the DCWV Crafty Stack.  Dark brown CS is SU! Early Espresso and tan CS is SU! Crumb Cake.  To finish the  banner I zigzag stitched around the edge.

Jute twine bows & buttons between each letter.  I like the long wavy tails on the small bows.   TFL!

  2. I LOVE IT LISA!! What a fun idea....when my ds moves, I have plans for my scrappy space to go in there. This banner gives me ideas! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. Oh my, this is so special. Love the color combos. Again, the detail is amazing. Having a pretty place to craft is relaxing and inspiring. You will enjoy your new space now that it is "you". Can't wait to see more, make sure you post as you come along with the "re-do".

  4. Pretty banner. I love all the Pattern paper. Love the color combo.

    Hugs, Sheena
