How to Make DAD Bunting
Suitable for : Beginners
Time to make : Around half an hour
You Will Need
- Cricut Explore
- DAD bunting templates
- A selection of different coloured card
- String or twine to hang your bunting
- Glue brush
- Newspaper or tablecloth to protect surfaces
- Apron to protect clothes
How to Make
Download the DAD bunting templates above.
Upload the DAD bunting templates into the Cricut Design Space using the ‘upload image’ setting.
Adjust the letters to your desired size in Design Space.
Delete the sections of the template you want to cut out for each letter (white section.) The design has been kept very simple using only two colours.
Choose your card and stick it to the Cricut Cutting mat.
Start the cutting process and watch your bunting come to life!
Peel the design from the mat carefully using the tools provided.
If you want to add a backing colour to your bunting, simply use the Design Space to hide the patterns within the text simplifying each letter to an outline. Or, for ease, we have uploaded the outlines for you :
Set the machine to cut, peel away the outline and stick the two pieces together!
Finally, punch a hole in the top of each letter and tread through your chosen twine.
Display your bunting with pride to welcome home your Dad!
