As promised, here is the YouTube video about how I turned a $3 Target Dollar Spot red Felt Banner into a gorgeous Retro Valentine’s banner using NEW Cricut Premium Vinyl in Textured Metallic Gold!
I discuss the differences between Cricut’s new Premium Vinyl and “the other brand”.
We talk about the term “permanent” as it relates to vinyl.

I’m back with another great Target Dollar Spot find that I’ve made even better by giving it a little Cricut touch! And just in time for Valentine’s Day! <3
I found this great red felt banner at the Target Dollar Spot and I just couldn’t resist! It was just THREE dollars and was perfect for embellishing with some Cricut vinyl. The red felt banner consists of seven traditional flags in Valentine-y red felt with white stitching.
It was just begging to be paired with something gold!
At first I thought I’d use some Cricut Iron-On, but then I remembered I had this roll of new TEXTURED gold vinyl that I’ve been just dying to try! And I am glad I did!
I know what you’re thinking: “Wouldn’t Iron-On be better on felt?”
The answer is: “Not Always!”
The wonderful texture of this textured vinyl is just perfect with the red felt and, because of its permanent bond, the Cricut Textured Vinyl grabs those felt threads and hangs on and on!
Furthermore I’m totally digging the amazing texture and how awesome it works with these traditional images.
And, of course, ALL of the images used in this project are available in Cricut Access for free to subscribers–otherwise it wouldn’t be a true Cricut Access Challenge, would it?
I hope you enjoy Cricut-izing these amazing felt banner, which can be used year after year for your Valentine’s Day decor!
Totally adorable, am I right?
