Dinosaurous Reximus: a dino birthday banner

So often, crafting is about finding someone else’s project, loving it, and recreating it in your own way.  In this particular case, my sister-in-law had attempted to purchase a dinosaur-themed birthday banner in girlie colors for my niece’s 1-year and 1-month birthday party (yes, we did celebrate one month late).  Unfortunately, the Etsy vendor said she simply couldn’t get it done in time for the event.

Sister-in-law emailed me with the photo of the banner she had wanted and asked if I could help create something similar.  Since I love all things crafting and I have a Silhouette Cameo cutting tool, I knew it would be a snap.

In this particular case, some sleuthing (i.e. Google image searches) showed that the dino designs actually came from the Cricut Create a Critter Cartridge.

Now of course, I have a different cutting machine so I couldn’t buy that cartridge.  But I am pretty handy in Photoshop and was able to create similar designs for the dinos to cut out on my Silhouette.  I made the body of my brontosaurus face the other direction and gave her a longer tail…you know…for more realism…  And here’s how it turned out!

  1. I have a silhouette and am looking for files just like these to cut out, would you like to sell your files to me? 🙂 They are adorable and exactly what I am looking for for a birthday party!
