I made this banner for the monthly Cricut Circle Challenge. I will use it at school for Spring Open House next week. This banner was a big challenge for me because I wanted all the backgrounds the same but didn't have 7 matching pieces of paper. I solved my problem by buying a roll of wrapping paper and cutting my squares from it. To add stability to the project I cut the same square shape from cereal boxes then glued the wrapping paper top the cereal boxes. I used pop-dots to under the circles and the letters. I cut my letters from dark red cardstock then covered the entire letter with a thick layer of glitter glue. The letter shadow is cut from dark blue. I used my xryon machine to apply an even layer of adhesive to attach the letter base to its shadow. I used dark blue ribbon to string the letters together. I taped the ribbon to the back of each letter so my banner will hang nicely. I am very pleased with the results of this challenge
