Making a Simple Give Thanks Banner Using the Cricut

This month's Pinterest challenge was all about Thanksgiving and while I don't typically do much extra decorating for the holiday I did see this cute Give Thanks banner that I thought would add a really nice touch to our fireplace.  




While the link leads to a free printable version I knew I could easily whip up something cute and quick on my Cricut.  

Using Cricut Sans I made my letters in all caps adjusting them all to be around 2" tall.  Using a free banner image sized to 3" wide and 4" tall I cut out 6 each in orange and green (this gave me one extra banner but allowed me to cut them all out in just 2 full sheets/cuts). 




Once I had everything cut, I laid out my design and glued the letters in place using rubber cement.  

After the letters were glued on, I added small holes in the corner of each card to hang them by. 


I threaded some ribbon through and then hung it on the mantle before making sure the letters were perfectly spaced.
