Spring, Easter and St. Patrick's Day Pennant Banners

I've been wanting to do a bunch of pennant banners for my kids birthdays for awhile now....still haven't gotten around it to, but I did get around to these this past week.  

And I learned a lot.  One of the coolest things I learned (and I'm probably really behind the times, I'm probably the last one to figure it out) is that the Cricut machine can cut fabric.  It's amazing!!  I used mine to cut the lettering and circles for the following banners.  

You just pick your fabric, and iron on some double sided fusible interfacing.  Then mount it on the cutting matt of the Cricut and set a new blade to the highest setting and cut!  Amazing!  I think I will be using this for so many projects to come.  I love it!
 Picking the fabric for the pennants was fun.  All of these came from Hobby Lobby for all the banners.  They have the cutest lines.  The pennants are 7 inches wide and 9 inches long each.  The circles on the Easter and Spring ones are 3" circles.  The Easter and Spring ones are double sided, so that after Easter is finished, I can turn it around and put the Spring one up.  
 I can hardly wait to get started on the birthday banners now.  I've always hated crepe paper streamers.  They never stay how I want them too!  A reusable fabric banner will be just great. :)
