Step 1: Rotary Blade

This is the rotary blade with housing.  It cuts fabric perfectly! It fits into the Cricut Maker in the adaptive tool slot. It's easy to place and remove. The machine is so smart that it recognizes that it's there. It's easy to calibrate in the Cricut Design Space software.

Step 2: Fabric Cutting

Place the fabric on the pink fabric mat and insert the rotary blade in the Maker. Select the project in Cricut Design Space or design your own project. Click here to get My Cricut Design Space Project File.

Repeat the rotary blade cutting process for each color of fabric desired. Each pass cuts out 3 buntings...and you will need 13.

After cutting the vinyl, weed the excess iron-on vinyl and heat up the EasyPress 2.

Then let the fabric cool down completely and peel back the plastic carrier sheet. Roll it back over itself for the cleanest removal. If it starts to lift up the vinyl, press it again for a few more seconds.

Step 5: Repeat for all Letters

Repeat the process for each letter.  Then stack the lettered buntings onto another bunting...so they are double layered.  At this point you can sew them together, treat the edges with fray check, adhere them together with liquid stitch...or just leave them as is.

Step 6: Ribbon

Then weave a ribbon through the bunting holes. I used 2 lengths of ribbon and did Happy and Birthday as 2 separate buntings. You could make one long one if you want.

This way I can use the "happy" for other occasions...like Daylight Savings day!
