I am on several design teams and one of my DT Sisters, Michelle, made a banner for her door for Halloween. I saw several other banners while perusing Pinterest. (which, by the way, is so addicting) I thought....hmmm...I have never EVER made a banner. So I pulled out my trusty Cricut Birthday Bash cartridge and started cutting away on my Cricut. Several hours later, here is what I came up with:
Isn't it cute, for a first try?
Big spider from Smiley cartridge, B from Birthday Bash
Do you see the teeny spiders?
Skulls and Bats and Eyes of Newt
What eyes of newt??? lol
The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout..
What water spout? lol There is none!
I just HAD to have a witch on here somewhere....
This was SO MUCH FUN!!! Thank you, Janis, for the adorable purple spiders. They are so cute!!! I cut the scallop banner from the Birthday Bash cartridge at 6 inches. It was not stiff enough, so I cut two more base cuts and used UGLY AND I MEAN UGLY cardstock and glued all three together so that it became like chipboard. Thank you, Mary at Cardztv for this helpful hint! The BIG spider is from the Smiley cartridge that came preloaded when I bought my Gypsy. It was cut at three inches and is HUGE. Don't you just love his eyeballs? They are stickers from Michaels!!! The "B" was cut at 4 inches and the other letters were cut at 4 1/4 from the Birthday Bash cartridge as well. All embellies, (other than Janis' adorable spiders) were from various Recollections stickers I got on sale at Michaels.
I just LOVED how this banner turned out. I am SO HAPPY....that I have decided to do a giveaway! Who would like some Halloween embellishments? I am not going to show them to you but I promise they are adorable!!!
All you have to do is leave me a comment! I will select a winner on Friday, October 5th and announce the winner by 9 pm Eastern Time.
P.S. I am entering this in the challenge over at MY CRAFTING CHANNEL.
