Make a Valentine Pennant/Banner with Cricut Markers

I’ve been seeing these cute pennants all over Blogland for some time now, and been wanting to make one.  Turns out they are super easy! 
I downloaded a new font for this project called Romantique.  At first I was just going to print the letters, but then I remembered the Cricut markers.
All you do is replace the blade on your Cricut with the color marker of your choice.
The scrapbook paper is called “Linen Closet” from The Stack Company.
Using SCAL, I layed out my letters.  I placed a brown marker into the blade housing, and instead of cutting out the image, it colors it instead!
Then, I cut out some basic shapes I needed to assemble to pennants, including triangles, circles, and scalloped circles.

Then, assemble them using whatever glue you have lying around. I used my glue gun, because I’m too impatient to wait for glue to dry!
Then, using some jute twine I already had, I glued them in place.

Tie some ribbon on, and you’re done!

Just goes to show Valentine’s decor doesn’t have to be pink and red!

    That turned out great, Amy! I love that font. 🙂 Do you download your fonts from the Cricut store, or online? I tried to download a font online and I couldn't, for the life of me, figure out how to do it correctly. :s

    Thanks so much for joining my Weekend Bloggy Reading party. 🙂 Have fun finding some great new reads. 😉
