Get started by opening up my Dorm Wall Hanging Project in Cricut DesignSpace. If you would like to change the quote, you can chose to edit my project or make it as is. I inserted the Rotary Blade into the right side housing to prepare for the felt cut.

Place the felt square on the cutting mat and load into the Maker. Follow the instructions on the screen to choose the correct material, then press the blinking "C" on the Maker to begin the cut.

Once the cut has completed, unload the mat and change the blade. I used the Fine Point Blade to cut the Vinyl. Load the mat and chose the appropriate material, then begin the cut. Don't forget to Mirror the image! Once the cut has completed, unload the mat and remove the vinyl. Carefully weed the excess vinyl from the design. I love my weeding tool to get the small pieces inside the letters!

Preheat the EasyPress2 according to the material chart. Once it beeps to let you know it is ready, firmly apply pressure to the design for 30 seconds. Carefully remove the plastic liner, making sure the vinyl is adhered fully.

Cut the dowel to length, if needed. Measure out the yarn (I measured twice the width of the banner, plus a little extra.) Hand sew the dowel into the top of the banner using the pre-cut slits. I started on one end, looping every other one, then came back the other direction.

Cut another length of yarn to hang the banner, securing to each end of the dowel by wrapping it around a few times and tying a knot.

Feel free to add tassels to the bottom, or pom poms to the sides of the dowels, or even glue on decorative trim to make it your own style! What quote would you put on a banner like this?
