Valentine banner with Cricut Artiste

Here's a cute banner that goes together rather quickly if you have the Close To My Heart cricut cartridge Artiste.  {see image booklet here}

First I'll show the banner, then some individual images and finally, the photos of which page in the Cricut Artiste booklet these shapes came from. 

Left rosette:  (yes my craft room wall is green....;)  )
Middle rosette:
Right rosette:
Back side showing how I attached the twine hanger in a puddle of liquid glass:
pages from Cricut artiste:  NOTE that there are several different rosette designs and all are great.  I simply chose 3 different designs and cut two pieces of each.  Accordian fold on the pre-scored lines and stick your ends together with liquid glass.  Hold for a minute till the bond is tight.  let dry before flattening the "tube" you end up with into a flatter circle shape.
(circles on front and back of each rosette are cut at 2" and adhered with liquid glass.  circles on the back side match the rosette and are used with a big puddle of liquid glass to attach the rosette so it lays flat.  simply lay circle on table.  put puddle of liquid glass in middle and around edge, flatten rosette and lay on top.  Place object (i.e. pair of scissors, ink pad or other weighty item) on top for 20 minutes till rosette is stuck and liquid glass dry or drying.   Top circle is in an alternate color for design purposes.
click the below photos to see them better.
