birthday banner love!

here it is! the cutest birthday banner if i do say so myself! i love how it turned out! pink, polka dots, crepe paper, and glittery goodness! whats not to love! this is a simple "wow" factor for any occasion!

i used seven 12x12 pieces of scrapbook paper, one roll of crepe paper, one piece of glitter paper, glue, and my cricut (love it!)! i, well the cricut, cut out thirteen 6" scalloped circles! i then took three layers of crepe paper and folded like a fan! i brought the ends together and glued! i used my scalloped paper cutter from stampin up to make the middle piece! again with the cricut i cut each letter 3"! i just glued each piece on and tada!

with some fun scrapbook paper, a roll of crepe paper, some glitter paper, and my cricut (love it!) this project was fun and easy!

i cant wait to show you the other little details of the party! soon!

  12. Hi, I'm new to the Cricut, but I'm attempting to make a b-day banner for my daughter's birthday. I was hoping you would be kind enough to tell me what you have to do to get the 6" circles out of a 12x12 sheet of cardstock?
