ScanNCut: Fall Home Banner

Today is the first day of Fall!  I figured that it might be the perfect time to share this Fall-themed project:

This super fun ScanNCut banner incorporates some basic sewing on no-ravel materials like cork fabric and felt.

No-ravel materials make this project quick and easy because they require absolutely no finishing!

The best part is that this entire project uses built-in designs from the ScanNCut DX225!  If you haven't taken the time to explore what's already built into your machine, I hope that you will.

Watch the video for the how-to:

Here are the basics:


  1. Choose banner shape.
  2. Load a mat with cork fabric on it.
  3. Cut the shape from cork fabric.
  4. Choose a font.
  5. Resize the text.
  6. Load a mat with four colors of stiff felt on it.
  7. Cut letters from felt.
  8. Tack felt letters to cork fabric banners with a glue stick.


  1. Sew fabric letters to cork fabric banners.
  2. Cut small strips from excess cork fabric.
  3. Use the strips to create loops for the banner pieces.  Stitch the loops in place.
  4. Choose one of the rolled flower designs.
  5. Cut it from patterned paper.
  6. Roll the flower.
  7. Fold the base along the perforation line.
  8. Release the rolled flower and glue to base.


  1. Choose a leaf design.
  2. Scan in felt scraps and place designs so they fit on the scraps.
  3. If you have extra room on your scraps, keep adding various leaf designs.
  4. Cut leaves and other embellishments from felt.
  5. Glue felt embellishments to the back of each paper flower.
  6. String a ribbon through the cork fabric banners, leaving enough room for the paper flowers.
  7. Glue each flower/embellishment combo onto the ribbon between banners and at the two ends.
  8. Hang in your home and enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial!  Thanks for stopping by!

(Also, because I know someone will ask, I took the photos of the finished banner at my Mom's house in her beautiful dining room!)
