Cutting the Design with Cricut Explore Air 2
Open the “Be Mine Valentine’s Day Banner” Canvas in Cricut Design Space.
Each of my letters are measured at the 340 font size and the fringe pieces are each about 3.75 x 6 inches, but you can reside the design however you need.
Simple select the entire design and drag a corner to resize. Just make sure you have the entire design selected so every piece is still proportioned correctly.
Follow the prompts from Cricut Design Space and when the arrow button blinks on the machine, load the mat and Cricut Party Foil.
Assembling the Be Mine Valentine’s Day Banner
Here are all of the pieces after they have been cut with the Cricut Explore.
Let’s start with the fringe background pieces.
Fold the non-cut top end in about a 1/3-inch. Then fold that edge over so it meets where the fringe begins.
The party foil is very slick making it a bit hard to hold without it slipping out of your hands, but it can be done.
I had a couple fringe pieces that would not stay folded and glued so I applied a strip of transparent tape to help hold it in place.
Next, add the letters to the front of the fringe pieces.
Apply a strip of craft tape along to top back of each letter and press it into place on the front of the fringe piece.
I left-aligned my letters so I could trim some of the fringes on my smaller-width letters. with a pair of scissors.
Take a long length of ribbon and string through the top fold of the fringe pieces.
The Banner is finished! Easy Peasy, right?
I hung mine over a large mirror I have in our living room.
