A coworker/friend of mine asked me to create some decorations for her granddaughters upcoming high school graduation. She wasn't really sure what she was looking for but knew she wanted to start with a banner that said "Congratulations Isabella" (which incidentally makes for a very long banner)! The party is a circus/carnival theme.
I began by dusting off my Gypsy and then searching for Cricut banner shapes and fonts. Here are the shapes and cartridges used for the different layers:
Banner (base) - Art Philosophy Collection
Banner trim (blue) - Art Philosophy Collection
Circle layers - Cricut Basics
Circus tent - Carousel
Letters - Carousel
All of the supplies were from the Recollections Collection by Michaels, including the rope that hangs the banner.
This project was very much an assembly line task and took a few hours to complete, but I think my friend will be pleased with the results.
