Fantabulous Cricut #43- Sweet Shop

Hello Everyone, for this weeks challenge at FCCB it is a "Sweet Shop" theme so you can make a project using candy. Someone recently asked me to make a banner for her, her sister is getting married and she is throwing the shower with these colors and wanted candy on it so this fit perfectly for this challenge. I cut the red part or pennants of my banner by hand. First I measured the length (5-1/2) and then found the center then I went up about 1-1/2 inches and made a mark, then connected that mark to both corners and cut out the triangle. For the fan folds I took my 12x12 paper and scored it at every 1/4 inch mark on the Martha Stewart score board, then I cut 2 inch strips of paper (2x12) then I fan folded them. After that was done I glued 2 pieces together (now I have a 2x24 piece) and then glued those ends together to form a circle. I used hot glue to adheare the fan folds to the pennants. I used Cuttin up to cut the letters at 3-1/2 and then Mini Monsters for the candy cut at 3-1/2 and sucker cut at 4 inches. I used stickles on them also but you cant really see it. I used some matching brads I had and red polka dot ribbon for the letters. I didnt put it together because it has to travel and she thought it would be better if she waited to get there to assemble it.
The Stickles are on the white areas, I was trying to get a better picture but I don't think you can really see them on here.
Thanks for stopping by, make sure you check out the other design team projects and give this a shot for some great prizes on the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog as well.

 This is what the banner looked like at the party with all the fun matching candy below it, she threaded it together with some fun tulle! :)
