Welcome to my blog, The Project Girl! I recently decorated my son’s room in a lumberjack theme, and this is one of my many projects that I created using my Cricut Explore. This room design is part of a competition, and if you love my room, I am hoping that you will take a second to go and vote for me on the Cricut Facebook Page (you don’t need a Facebook account). Thanks so much for your help, every vote is greatly appreciated!
One of my favorite projects from the Lumberjack Room I designed, was this geometric banner. It’s just a great 3-dimensional piece.
To create this banner, I started by cutting AND SCORING the diamond shapes with my cricut explore.
Then I folded all my scored tabs and lines using a bone folder to get nice crisp lines. A bone folder is one of my favorite craft tools.
I did this for all the diamond boxes I wanted to create, and then I used my Ad tech glue runner to glue the boxes together. I also ran the string through the boxes while glueing them so that I wouldn’t have to attempt to string them together afterwards. This way the string goes through the middle of the boxes as well.
And here’s the final product, a lovely geometric banner!
