Amazing Cinco de Mayo Banner + Cupcake Flags…

IMG_1251-001

Yes, I just called my own project “amazing”…..but it really is! If there was ever a perfect example of what the Cricut Explore can do, that I could never ever do with a pair of scissors, this is it.

Inspired by papel picado, the Mexican folk art, I created this fun banner and coordinating cupcake flags perfect for Cinco de Mayo! Hundreds of tiny, intricate perfect cuts made by the Explore to create these beautiful decorations fit for any fiesta!

This project is definitely classified as “easy”, though it does take some serious time to cut all of those teeny details! (27 minutes per banner panel to be exact!) But, don’t let that scare you. Just load your paper, hit the Cricut button and go on doing all of the other million things you need to do (like making margaritas!) until it’s time to load the next sheet.

Once cut, just string the banner panels on twine to create the banner and use hot glue to attach the cupcake flags to sticks!
