This year has buzzed by at lightning speed with so many new and exciting things learned and accomplished. My purchase of the Cricut Maker is one of those exciting things accomplished. I wanted to share our latest project so you can learn how to make this New Year’s Banner, too, by following our easy instructions.
This new adventure began when my daughter had shoulder surgery on Oct. 31. She started getting restless after a week of resting. I knew she needed something to do, but she was constrained since she had one arm in a sling and could not lift anything heavier than her clothes. She had previously mentioned how wonderful the Cricut Maker was and that we could use one, but at that time, I brushed it off as another gadget to collect dust. What I did not know was it also cuts fabric. That bit of information was a game-changer for me. Now cutting those little ornaments, appliques, and letters for the banners would be a breeze and so much more.

How to Make a New Year’s Banner
I wanted to make a banner for New Year’s, therefore, I consulted my daughter about using the Cricut Maker to make it. My daughter, Olivia, is a graphic designer so she can whip up amazing designs in minutes and then she uses the Cricut Maker to cut out and/or write on the projects. It is like magic. I still had to make the decisions about the paper colors and I knew I wanted something traditional for New Year’s. My choices were black and gold with a bit of tan and white as accents.
