Exploring Cricut ~ Cricut Choice

Welcome to another fun challenge at Exploring Cricut.

This week Diane has asked the team to try something new! Grab a cartridge that you have not used or used very little and create a card, layout, or papercraft. Explore the unknown! Have fun with this one!

I decided to used Independence Day and make some home decor...


4 - Triangle Pennants (red, white and blue layers) cut at 3 inches
4 - Bunting Cuts (red, white and blue layers) cut at 2 inches

To assemble this project, you will need

5 - 4 inch coordinating pieces of ribbon
1 - piece of jute - 24 inches


1. Cut all Cricut cuts and assemble
2. Hot glue pennants (alternating designs) on jute.
3. Fold ribbon and adhere between cuts. I used glue dots for this part.
4. Trim ribbon as desired.
5. Trim jute to desired length and enjoy!

So easy and fun! This project will remain on my corner cabinet until after Labor Day! I love anything Americana (as you can see by the items in my cabinet...) Thanks for stopping in and until next time... Blessings...
