Valentine Projects with the Cricut Maker

Friday, February 9, 2018
*I was given a Cricut Maker to use to create projects, and the fabric for the banner was provided by Riley Blake Designs. The projects and opinions are all my own.

I have been crafting up a storm lately. There's just something about creating that puts me in my happy place. And now that I have a Maker, it's even more fun, since the tedious cutting I dislike is done for me. Today I'm going to share the files to make both a fun scallop banner and a set of envelopes you can use for either a mini quilt, or hoops.

You can find the .svg file on my Google Drive by clicking here. The scallop bunting can be found in Design space here. (if you have a problem accessing either of these, please let me know by emailing me at
To cut the felt and fabric envelope pieces and the fabric for the bunting, I used the rotary blade, I used the fine point blade for the foil hearts. The felt hearts I cut out by hand.
I fused Heat n Bond to the fabric for the envelope lining before I cut it out with the Maker. Then I fused it to the felt before adding the hand embroidery detail using floss. I stitched the envelopes to both the mini quilt and the hoop fabric using my sewing machine.
To make the scallop bunting, take two scallop pieces and place them right sides together.
Sew around using a 1/4" seam allowance, then trim the fabric using either pinking shears or sharp fabric scissors to clip the curves so they will lay flat.
Turn the scallop right side out.
Press the scallops
Fuse the foil hearts to the scallops.
I put the scallops together into a bunting using double fold bias tape. You could also sew the scallops to a ribbon if you like.
*the fabric I used is a new basics fabric from Riley Blake Designs called Kisses.
If there are any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. If you'd like to see a video with steps on making the bunting- I have a video saved in the highlights section of my Instagram profile at 
Have fun making!!
