First Communion Banner with Cricut

I have finally finished my son's First Communion banner. I have been working on this on and off for over a week. The hardest part was cutting his name with the heat n' bond. I had never cut fabric with my cricut so that was a learning experience. I wanted his name to be Felt material and that didn't work well for me. Maybe I need to try again some other day so I settled for fabric looks like shiny fabric.  I did manage to cut some thin foam with my deep blade for the Cup and Cross bottom layers to give it some dimension. The grape's top layer is also foam. I cut the top layer for the Cross and the Cup  with paper.  Everything is glued with foam and/or felt glue.  The trim is from a Spellbinders 12 inch border die. I wanted to add more, but my son thought it would look girly.... boys are too funny.  Thank you for visiting today.

The Stuff:

Cross : Easter Cricut Cart
Chalice/Goblet : My World Cricut Cart
Grapes : Preserves Cricut Cart 
Name font: Hanna Montana Cricut 
Border (top) Spellbinders grand borders 
Bottom Border : wave edge ruler 
Dowel and Dowel ends from Michaels and inked

Oh Nilda, it came out just BEAUTIFUL! You should be very proud of yourself, you did an amazing job on it. I know how hard you worked, so glad that you found a medium to work with for the letters. I think it is perfect, and I know your son is very proud. Not girly at all, LOL!

What did you use for the backing? It looks like felt over foam board.
