Party Banner | A Work of Carte

Hey stampers! This week’s project is a party banner, which I made using my Cricut to cut the shapes and some stamps to finish off the look! I love how this banner came out. I actually started making this party banner way back in December when I first got my hands on these fantastic products. I had tried to make this using the We R Memory Keepers Banner Punch Board until I discovered that the banner punch board blade dulls really easily when cutting thick paper! What a drag!

So I put my party banner aside for awhile and came back to it in late February when Stampin’ Up put a call out for display stampers. I thought it’d be the perfect excuse to finish this party banner idea that had been in my mind for a couple of months! The only thing I needed to sort out was how to make the banner shapes…

In 2013, I had made a party banner using my Cricut machine and decided to use the same banner shapes as the base for this party banner. I just love the way it turned out! I hung this in my craft room right underneath this cute banner that was a Sale-A-Bration exclusive a few years back.

Here’s a close up of the little rose that separates the words. The rosettes behind the letters were created with 2 strips of Birthday Blooms designer series paper that measure 12″ x 1-3/8″. I scored each of these strips every 1/2″ and folded in a zig-zag (or mountain-valley) formation. I glued them together (valley-to-mountain) on each edge and pushed down on the center to get the rosette to lay flat. To adhere, use a glue gun with the Silicone Craft Sheet.

The SVG files I used to create the party banner shapes are available for $4. You’ll get 10 vector shapes to use on your party banners; 3 large banner shapes, a banner tail and 3 nesting label shapes. You will also get a full alphabet along with numbers and common punctuation marks and special characters! You’ll need to punch the holes to hang the banners (I didn’t want to assume the thickness of your twine/rope).
