Letter banners are a creative way to send a bold, yet beautiful message. I use them as festive party decorations and dazzling statement pieces for my home. Although I adore letter banners, the process of making them by hand is tedious. In my original tutorial, I traced letters onto cardstock and individually cut them with an X-acto knife. My hands would beg for mercy *cringe*.
Last year everything changed because I bought my first die-cutting machine! After learning about all the innovative ways I could use this machine, I knew it would help me make banners with ease.
In today’s DIY tutorial, I will show you how to create a letter banner with cut files from my online shop. Let’s get started!
How To Make A Letter Banner
- Twine, string, or ribbon
- Die-cutting machine and tools
- Letter banner cut file
Step 1: Purchase.
- PNG images formatted for letter sized paper (8.5” x 11”)
- PDF Instructions for a Cricut machine
Here are cut files that are currently available for purchase in my online shop:
“Congratulations” Party Banner
“Happy Birthday” Party Banner
Step 2: Upload
Once purchased, a secure link with the cut file will be automatically emailed to you. Download and unzip the file.
Step 3: Format
Upload the PNG images to your machine’s design application. Resize the image according to the PDF instructions or to your desired measurements.
Step 4: Create
Cut the banner, thread it, and decorate!
No cutting machine, no worries!
