DIY Ice Cream Party Banner with Cricut



I always get a lot of questions about party banners. People often think they are from Etsy or ask me where to buy them. I actually almost always make my own party banners using my Cricut machine. It's super easy and I can customize them however I want. I'm going to show you exactly how I made my ice cream banner for this party, but you can use these same steps to create a banner for any theme. The possibilities are endless!! 


I have a Cricut Explore Air 2 ™ that I love, it has bluetooth and cuts really fast. For this banner I used this poster board pack. But I do often use cardstock as well. 



All you have to do is open Design Space, click on add image in the top left, and search what you're looking for. I used this ice cream cone image. Press your poster board paper onto the mat (that comes with your Cricut!) and load it in then press the start button. 



And voila, a few seconds later, you have an ice cream cone! Repeat these same steps using as many colors of paper as you would like. My ice cream cone was 2 pieces so I made all the cones in yellow and then all the tops in different colors. 


After you have all your pieces, cut your twine or ribbon a little longer than the table or space that you'll be hanging your banner from. Then just hot glue the paper to the twine. That's it! 


This video was made using the current Design Space program. A new update IS coming soon at which time, we will update this video! 

I was invited to participate in the Cricut Party Blogger Program Kickoff.  
This experience is based strictly on my opinion.  Others may have a different opinion or experience with the product listed above.  I was provided the sample free of charge by the company or PR agency and I have given my honest opinion.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
