DIY Christmas Banner SVG for Cutting Machines, Holiday Mantel Decoration


Craft an "OH SO MERRY" banner for the mantel with this easy-to-make Christmas SVG template. The banner pattern features yew branches and berries at the top of each 4.3 x 7.6" flag (fit two on each sheet of 8.5 x 11" card stock). Download the cutting file to cut on your cutting machine — Cricut, Silhouette, or any machine that accepts SVG files. Each letter has a stitching design around the edge that can be written with the pen on your cutting machine (or delete the stitch lines if you prefer not to write with your machine). Prefer to cut by hand? Use the included PDF. Since this is a simple layered assembly, no written instructions are included but see this short YouTube  video for a quick how-to and a couple of Cricut Design Space tips.

Skill level: intermediate, uses both cutting and writing functions on the cutting machine
Time: 1 hour plus cutting time
