Spring Banner Picture Frame

Spring is a pretty time when the flowers start to bloom, trees bud, and the Earth comes alive. Winter is long and cold where I live so getting outside in the sun and warm weather is exhilarating. I’m still waiting for it to warm up, but I know it will happen. For this months Craft and Create Cricut Challenge, I wanted to make a paper craft so I’m making a spring banner. Paper crafting was my earliest creative passion with scrapbooking and I love beautiful paper.

Plus I haven’t used my new Cricut Maker yet for paper and I really wanted to give it a try. This spring banner was exciting for me and the Maker didn’t disappoint. My first Cricut was the Explore and upgrading to the Maker was amazing. If your thinking about upgrading I highly suggest- YES!!!!

In Cricut Design Space™ using my Cricut Access Premium, I found this adorable image of a pitcher with flowers in it. Since I am addicted to the farmhouse style, this flower image spoke to me. For the spring banner I wanted to do the flower pitcher, flower pattern. To make things easy, I decided to use the flower from the flower pitcher image.

To do this in Cricut Design Space
-ungroup the image

-place the original flower back on the flower pitcher, highlight, and group

As I cut my pieces I like to keep them sorted in piles so it will be easier to glue later.

The flower pitcher is detailed so I like to look at the image in Design Space as I glue it to make sure it’s correct.

Now that my beautiful spring banner is ready, I’m going to paint a 5×7 picture frame to put my spring banner in. This is going to be a perfect addition to my spring decor. The banner will be strung on ribbon and I’ll use glue dots to adhere the images.
