Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge
Well, I wasn't going to play along because I didn't know what to make.....but see I have all these plastic casings from all the carts I have been amassing since purchasing the Gypsy a year ago.....
MAGAZINE ORNAMENT CHALLENGE!
We want to see the beautiful creations you can make with the Cricut, YuDu or Cuttlebug for your Christmas Tree.
Create something that is unique and wonderful, then share it for all to enjoy!
Project must be newly created and able to hang from your tree. You must use at least 4 Cricut cuts in your design and incorporate something from one other Provo Craft Product… like the YuDu, Cuttlebug or Knifty Knitter.
The ornament I've decided to make was super easy and cut from the Holiday Cakes cart. I set my images at 5 inches tall. I know this may seem like huge, but I have a 12 ft tall artificial Christmas tree that it's going to hang to once the hubby gets around to bringing all the boxes down from the attic. The 2 green scalloped circles were unaltered and the red scalloped circle was cut with the inside designs hidden using the hide contour on the Gypsy. The plain circle (plastic casing) was cut slightly bigger than the openning on the other 3 scalloped circles because I wanted it to show through the middle without falling off - it was also cut using the multicut function on the expression. Here is the pic after I have cut the images and the plastic circle already embossed with the Cuttlebug Large Snowflakes folder (one of the ones from the HSN bundle).
I attached the red image behind one of the green images then attached the embossed plastic circle behind them. I attached a piece of red thin ribbon to hold the ornament before I sealed the back with the remaining green image. I had to bling (not a requirement here, but just a ME thing) with my irock and gems and a red tulle for the bow. LOL my kids actually thought that the embossed plastic was a piece of glass! Not that you guys had a choice ;), but thanks for letting me ramble on and thanks for stopping by!
