How to create a banner in Cricut Design Space

For my banners I like to first create the full banner on Design Space using whatever text I like and then I add in circles where I’d like my holes.

how to ungroup words to letters in design space
  • Write a sentence of what you’d like your banner to say.
  • Ungroup the sentence to letters.
  • Add circles where you’d like to thread the string.
  • Use the slicing feature to create the hole in each letter.

Note about the slicing feature – you can only slice 2 things at a time. So if it’s grayed out and not an option, you may have only one, or too many things selected.

You’re totally welcome to just use a hole punch instead of figuring out the slicing feature too! If you’re interested in a video tutorial of how to do that please comment belowe I’d be happy to do that for you!

Tip: Make sure your letters are set out and you string them in the same pattern. If you flip them over to string them, your sentence will be backwards!

3D Bats

How cute are these 3D bats I put on my banner?! I got mine from Temu for dirt cheap. You can also pick them up at Amazon. They’re the same… one will just take longer to get to you and is a little cheaper because of that!
