USA Banner

This is a repost from last week, apparently when Blogger was down last week - it deleted this post.

I've been really into banners and made one for Memorial weekend.
I used my Cricut but you really could make this banner with scissors and paper...

I used three Cricut cartridges
In the Kitchen - for the banner shape
Opposites Attract - for the font
Independence Day - for the circle shapes

I made the flowers from red, white and blue cupcake papers that I had left over from last year..

The flag was made using the Independence Day Cricut cartridge.

It's a very simple banner..

I love to decorate with red, white and blue in the summer..

Best part of this project is that I already had all of the supplies...

and took maybe 15 minutes to put together..

I really need to use my Cricut more, it's easy, fun and fast!
If you have a Cricut, let me know what cartridge you use seem to use alot...
I just recently purchase My Community cartridge, can't wait to try it out..

I'm linking to these parties....
