Well, hello there! My name is Jen Carreiro and I’m the turquoise-crazed owner and maker of Something Turquoise, a wedding blog that celebrates the DIY bride. I share different types of do-it-yourself tutorials on my blog including custom projects to make with your Cricut, that are all focused around weddings and wedding events. I’m super excited to share that each month I’ll be guest blogging here, sharing some type of fun and creative wedding inspiration with you. First up, it’s all about banners! Banners of all shapes and sizes are now an iconic part of party decor, especially for weddings. So today I’ve rounded-up my 15 favorite Cricut-able banners that would be the perfect decor addition to any of your wedding events!
From creating a custom banner with your soon-to-be wedding date, perfect for snapping photos during your engagement shoot… to creating a decor element for your bridal shower or maybe even an adorable mini-cake topper bunting - the sky is the limit when you use your Cricut!
