Then using my Cricut Mini and their free basic font I cut out the letters “BE MARRIED” and a heart shape sizing everything to 5 inches wide by 6 inches long. You could also use any font on your computer as well. Just use an x-acto knife to cut out the letters for your flags if you do.
I traced each letter onto the flags with a marker like so…making sure to have ample room at the top of the flag so I could stitch a casing for the twine.
Then grab your paint and a brush and thoroughly paint in each letter (I used Martha Stewarts Satin Finish Craft Paint!) Once it is dry, fold your flags in half. Using your sewing machine, make a casing for the twine by sewing a line about 1/2 inch from the fold. I also stitched all around the side of the flags and the bottom as well to keep the flags as one unit.
And there you have it…
Now I just have to get this and a few other things I made for them out into the mail today 🙂
