My school is hosting the 61st Annual Mason-Dixon basketball tournament this weekend, and I was asked to make something to decorate a wall in the hospitality room. I decided to make a welcome banner:
The basketball hearts are from SVGcuts — their 24 Valentines kit. They’re cut at 8 inches. One reason die cut machines are so much better than regular dies is that there is so much flexibility in the size that you can make it! I used this same file here to make 3×3 valentines!
I needed some strong basketball players to hold up the welcome sign for me:
These boys are cut from Everyday Paper Dolls using the gypsy. They’re sixteen inches tall. I made my first “cut” using Cricut markers, then instead of hitting unload mat I chose return to design and hid all the lines except for the outlines and the eyes. Our school colors are red and black so the player on the left is from our team and the one on the right is from one of the visiting teams. Here they are holding up the banner:
The banner is strung with Trendy Twine. I thought the Halloween colors were a perfect match! The font is Lucida Bright Semibold, cut with Sure Cuts A Lot. This was a fun project!
