Father's Day Banner

Welcome to Crazy About Cricut Thankful Thursday! This week's challenge is to make a special project for Father's Day, and you're welcome to try something other than a card too :) I can usually come up with some cute ideas for girls, but when it comes to guys, sometimes I just can't think of anything to make for them! So I searched around for some inspiration and came upon the Tie-riffic Father's Day ideas on the My Insanity blog! So I made this awesome banner to have waiting for my father-in-law and grandpa when they come over for the party on Sunday. Since my dad lives in Washington, I'm going to email him the pictures so he can get a banner too! :)



I used the ties on the Everyday Paper Dolls cart and the letters from the Birthday Bash cart. So cute! Then I used the shadow feature and raised them up on pop dots just to give it a little more 3D effect and added the buttons as embellishments.
