Guest Designer Die Cuttin’ Divas

I'm super excited to be guest designer at Die Cuttin’ Divas!

It’s Challenge #219 and the theme is National Aquarium Month.

I needed a summer theme banner for my mantle so I decided to make a mini banner with 3 panels.

First I started with some canvas I picked up at Joanns and trimmed the banner shapes with a rotary cutter.

I then ironed on the fusible web to the back of the fabric. I placed the fabric on my cutting mat and cut with my Cameo. 

I cut the Miss Kate Cuttable’s Seahorse and Fish SVG File.
This simplistic file is perfect for cutting fabric. I did not cut the eyes from the file. I hot glued buttons instead.

Here is a closeup view of the banners:

I cut the blue fabric 1" wider than the canvas and double folded it over to finish off the edges.
I stitched down the sides and stitched ribbon across the top. I hot glued buttons on the ribbon to finish it off.
Here is a look at the back of the banners:

I hope you enjoyed my project. I would like to thank Die Cuttin’ Diva’s for having me as Guest Designer.
