Alternatively, in a blank canvas within Design Space, insert image #M3D0B5 (banner) and resize to 4.5” x 7” or 11.4cm x 17.8cm. Duplicate xx times. Insert image #M4CFFE (flourish) and resize to fit the banner. Duplicate so you have two and flip one of them so you have one flourish for each end of the banner.

Choose ‘Chalkboard Fonts – Extended’ from the font menu and type the word ‘celebrate’. Resize to fit the banner and then ungroup to letters.

Cut:

Be sure to mirror the image when using iron-on and place the shiny side (clear liner) onto the mat.

Cut glitter letters and flourishes, and fabric banner.

Assemble:

Use a weeder tool to remove the negative pieces of iron-on so just your design remains on the clear liner.

Apply the iron-on layers to your fabric banner using a Cricut EasyPress and EasyPress mat. Use the interactive guide for the perfect time and temperature settings: https://cricut.com/en_us/heatguide
