A Hair Salon's Banner using CTMH and TBB products

I've been having a lot of fun creating using The Buckle Boutique's adhesive rhinestone sheets.  For this banner for a friend's hair salon, I cut the very fine letters using my Cricut Expression 2 and Cricut Artbooking cartridge.

To cut the letters, I referenced the tips that The Buckle Boutique's Design Team Coordinator Shawn Mosch posted on TBB's blog earlier this month.  Go HERE to see them for yourself, and make sure you read all the way to # 6 about flipping the letters. (Dohhhh, I didn't at first!) 

I adhered the rhinestone letter to a white cardstock cut in the same size, and popped it with cardboard underneath, to raise the letters up. 

I made the rest of the banner using a Close To My Heart pre-cut Mini Banner (discontinued) and covered it with "For Always" CTMH designer paper called B&T Duos. I made the rosettes using a Silhouette Online Store file (on my Cameo, using another B&T Duo, "Laughing Lola". 

I tied the banner pennants together using CTMH black tulle ribbon (also discontinued). There are chains at either end to hang it -- and those chains are from a CTMH Base & Bling Necklace that I cut apart and used every last link! :) 

I hope you like it --  I'm sure my friend, Chris, will too!
