Without beating the HSN thing into the ground, I thought it would be fun to share with you how some of the goodies on the table display were made! Today I thought I would show you pics of the Banner you saw on the front of the table.
Did you know Glue Arts Extreme Tac adhesive IS actually strong enough to actually hold Rosette Banners in place and you don’t have to burn your fingers with hot glue or hold each one together until it dries? YES! This is another reason why I love Glue Arts Glue Glider Pro so very very much!
Should we walk through how I made this personal and custom party banner with my Cricut?
First of all, I have to say, here is another reason why I love the Artiste Cricut Cartridge so very much! There are a ton of fancy pattern/design Rosettes in this cartridge and that is what I used to create this banner. Other things I used and You will need:
- Glue Glider Pro with Extreme Tac Cartridges
- Bright and Cheery Paper, I used the Paper Layerz Happy Dots and Bella Blvd Sunshine and Happiness Collection
- Bakers Twine
- Artiste Cricut Cartridge and Cricut Expression, Cricut Expression 2 or the Cricut Mini (the Cricut Imagine will work too! LOL)
- Bone Folder and Scor Board
- Sparkle Lightz
I started out by cutting 12 – 2″ rosette pieces from page 50 of the Artiste Cartridge handbook, I used Auto Fill to get as many on my 12×12 scrapbook paper as possible.
The cool thing about Artiste Cricut Cartridge is that it comes with an additional Instruction handbook for how to assemble all of the 3D and “assembly required” items in this Cartridge! It’s an amazing thing because many older cartridges do not provide such insight and you are left on your own, scratching your head going, how do I put this together?
Lots and lots of little pieces to pull out and you can see many left on the cutting mat. Make sure and use the Cricut Cutting Guide for your paper to get just the right setting and make life easier with intricate cuts like this!
After you have all the rosette pieces cut out (you will need two for every one complete circle rosette you would like to make) use your score board and bone folder to follow the slight “cut lines” as to where to accordion style fold each piece.
Once you have each piece scored, and folded grab your Glue Glider Pro and start assembling by glueing end to end into a circle. Cut out an additional 2″ circle as a base for the front AND BACK. Cover each circle completely with adhesive and place on the front and back of your rosette for complete stabilization. You can then add additional embellishments, letters to complete a word or name, whatever you would like!
These banners always do seem to take longer than I THINK they will, which is why this isn’t a video tutorial. Allow yourself some time and patience, (I admit I can be lazy and loose it with projects that are repetitive and get bored if I’m doing the same thing for longer than 20 minutes) HOWEVER, these banners are personal and great for parties and worth it! I thought it looked really cute on our table for HSN and honestly – what other adhesive makes it so easy? I HATED when I made one before my glue glider because I had to hold each piece together and wait for it to dry and then still had it pop apart! I will warn you though – you need to use a LOT of the extreme tac. and use quality lighter pattern paper. Paper Layerz really is a great fit for this type of project!
I hope you enjoyed – I know it isn’t a video – so if you have questions about what I did and if I left out something that has confused you, let me know in the comments section of this post and I will do my best to answer!
Thank you so much for your support and love and taking time to stop by today!
