Another Banner & Blog Hop Winners!

Happy Tuesday!

First off, I wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who's follows my blog and leaves comments! I want you to know that I read every single comment that is left. I may not have time to respond to each one, but that doesn't mean I haven't read them.  Also, for those of you that have asked me to visit your blogs, I will! I promise! It just may take me a couple days to get there, but I promise to visit and become a follower of your blog. Everyone has been so encouraging and nice to me and I just want you to know that I appreciate you all and I can't thank you enough.  

I have received quite a few requests, asking if I would make a video showing how/explaining how I make banners. 
I have been wanting to make a banner, for my one little word. My word is "Brave". 

Normally, I would design my banner on my Gypsy, but I though that I would show how to make one with just your Cricut. The video is below just encase you want to skip to that. :)
 I cut the flags at 5" and the letters at 2 1/4". The rosettes are 2 3/4" in diameter. I may still put something on the two end flags... just not sure what... maybe little birds...

Have I told you yet, how hard it is to take photos of banners?
 The papers are from Basic Grey's, Urban Prairie collection. I used 6" black tulle to string the banner together.
I really like how it turned out and it looks really cute hanging on my inspiration board.

Here is "Part one" showing how I made the banner!

Here is "Part Two"!
