- Cricut Design Space Project
- Cricut Cutting Machine
- Cricut Scoring Stylus
- Patterned Paper
- Double-Sided Adhesive
Cricut Design Space:
The cut file for Easter Egg Banner has been designed and is mostly ready to go in Cricut Design Space.
As it is currently sized, the finished size of each pennant banner is about 4 x 6 inches. This can be adjusted by highlighting all pieces of the design and dragging the bottom right-hand corn to the desired size.
This is also for only one pennant, so make sure to duplicate all pieces of the projects for the number of pennants you want for your banner. My banner has 5 pennants.
Once you have everything ready, select Make It.
Follow the prompts to cut out your pieces. Cricut Design Space will tell you when to place the scoring stylus into the clamp.
I cut this out on a Cricut Explore Air 2 but this could also be cut on the Maker.
Assembling the 3D Egg Silhouettes:
Fold each of the eggs down the center along the scoreline.
To layer, keep the paper egg folded in half. Apply the double-sided adhesive to the paper half and lay the next folder paper egg right on top so all sides line up.
Layer 5 paper eggs on top of one another, all the say way.
Once all have been glued together the egg will fan out and you will be able to see all of the layers.
Repeat until you have all of the 3D eggs for your banner completed.
Assembling the Pennant Banner:
To glue the eggs onto the pennant banners, turn them over and apply glue to the back of the 3D egg and then center on the pennant. Press into place.
To string the pennants together use some ribbon or twine.
Hang your cute Easter Egg Banner and admire your craftiness!
I told you this banner was simple! Plus, you could copy this design for so many different holidays. Instead of an egg for Easter use a shamrock for St. Patrick's Day or a heart for Valentine's Day!
