This banner is so colorful and fun, and you can use it for anything from graduation to birthdays to a new baby!
It’s easy to make a paper banner with the Cricut Maker, and you use twine or string to hang it, making it easy to hang and reusable.
Paper Banner Supplies
You can make any kind of banner you’d like – this is a good project to play around with in DesignSpace, because it will allow you to become more familiar with picking and using shapes, grouping, slicing, and welding.
I made each of the little paper pieces 3″ wide by 5″ long, then added square diamonds to each one for the letter to be cut out of.

The decorative elements I found in the ‘images’ section. A lot of what goes into designing these projects for the Cricut is playing around in Design Space and seeing what you like the look of. You can add different design elements together to create a new design, rotate shapes, cut shapes out of paper as negative or positive space. You se that your options are limitless once you jump in and start designing!
Anyway, once your paper pieces have been cut out, it’s time to glue them together. I used Uhu stick glue and then when that was dry, threaded twine through the holes evenly to hang the banner.
If you want to make my project like it is (or even customize it), you can find it in Design Space here. Happy banner-making!
