Today’s video DIY is for one of my favorite party decorations ever! This Cricut birthday banner is fully customizable and can be used for just about any other party you can think of: anniversaries, graduations, welcome home celebrations, you name it! And everyone loves to see their name on the wall.

This project only takes a Cricut machine, a pack of medium weight cardstock and a box of medium sized brads. I’ve already done the hard part for you and created the letters in Cricut design space here. Just open it up, load your cardstock and fine point blade into your machine and off you go!

The video below will even show you how to create your own letters using a different size or font, if you prefer. But if you use the project via the link above, it’ll only take you an afternoon of watching your machine cut them all out!

The project includes the following quantities of each letter and number:

  • 4 – A, E, F, I
  • 3 – C, D, G, H, L, N, O, R, S, T
  • 2 – B, J, K, M, P, U, V, W, Y, Z
  • 1 – Q, X, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

    Watch the video below and find the completed project in Cricut Design Space here!

      It should be! If the link doesn’t work for you, go to Cricut design space and search for project 144506387. Good luck!

      Woops, I think you’re right Michelle! I must have missed them. If you watch the video in the post, I explain how to create your own letters in design space.

    Hey Bonnie. Is the video still available to see how you made the letters? I don’t see it. I desperately want to use this design to make a Happy Birthday Banner, but I need to make the missing P’s..
