Here's a banner that I made for my son's second birthday. It was actually really super simple.
I used the Dinosaur Tracks Cricut cartridge. It already has these banner letters and shapes set as part of the cartridge, even including the holes for stringing them.
I used my Gyspy and found out that if I cut them at 5.5 inches I could get away with only using 4 sheets of cardstock, one in each of my color choices. So, that's the size I used.
When they were all cut out I strung them onto some of the curling ribbon that came with a helium tank and balloons I purchased for the party. To make the banner a bit more even I added an image of some dino tracks to the side that says Sammy so it would have the same number of blocks as the side that said saurus.
The part that took the longest was trying to get the letters spaced out evenly and using tape to keep them in their places. I just eyeballed it and it was a bit uneven, but it looked close enough that I didn't think it was worth shifting them all around again.
Thanks for stopping by :)
