Teacup banner!


Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I don’t have anything green to show you today. Unless teal counts. Does teal count? Who knows? 

I recently tried my hand at banner making using my Silhouette Cameo. A friend’s bridal shower was Saturday, and there was a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party theme. The colors were black, white, and teal. It was SUCH a lovely shower!

I started by printing some pretty patterns on cardstock. These were either Microsoft ClipArt or free backgrounds I found online.

Then I grabbed this “tea time” set from the Silhouette online store so I could cut that adorable teacup! On sale for 50 cents! 

Et voila!


The saucers are just ovals. Nothing complicated about that.

I used her wedding date on the teacups! Martha Stewart glue pens are perfect for getting adhesive on those curly parts.

And here it is in action! So fun! 

This was so fun and easy. I’m now dreaming up where else I can put banners! I think my office needs one, right?
