CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Lots of cardstock
  • hot glue
  • long ribbon

Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

I used CCR, and CCR image Cricut Mini- Celebrate, I cut this pennant out at 7.5" I sized it so I could fit 2 on a 8.5x11 paper. These are made to fit together so the holes line up perfectly. I choose that color of purple because the salon has a few walls painted that color. I used my ATG gun to adhere together.
You can see full directions in video.
I welded two pieces together from page 30 of Ribbons & Rosettes Cricut cartridge. In the cut file I made it so you can cut 4 of these pieces on one sheet of 8.5x11" paper and it takes two pieces to make one rosette. I scored these right over the little holes and then adhered them together with my ATG. You just push it together and then open it and hot glue it. It can take a little practice. I show you how to do them in the video.
I then cut out circles on black, glitter cardstock and hot glued the rosettes right on pennant and then the circle on top of rosette.
I cut the letters out with Feeling Groovy Cricut cartridge and also used the shadow feature. They were cut out at 6" but most of them are smaller than 6" because that is the way the font is. I picked this font because I thought it was fun looking. Everyone loved it. I hot glued the letters on, The glitter paper is hard to get things to stick to them. I strung them together using orange ribbon, that thin ribbon that is only 50 cents.
