FCCB Challenge #301: Animals

Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog!

Challenge #301-Animals
Make a project about any kind of animal-dogs, cats, horses, cows, etc!

The FCCB Design Team is sponsoring a $25 gift card at


To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.
If it isn't a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

I've been meaning to make this treat holder for our Gracie Lou for sometime and this challenge gave me the nudge that I needed.  This project started off as a Christmas Popcorn Trio Tin.  I lightly sanded the outside, taped & balled up newspaper to protect the inside and then spray painted it.  I cut the paw print using the Paper Pups cartridge and Don Juan font for her name.

I curved Gracie's name in Design Space before cutting the vinyl. This made it so easy when placing it on the tin.
I decided to do it twice since I have many of these tins.
Steps: 1) Sand & Spray Paint Tin; 2) Cut & Apply Vinyl; 3) Secure Knob; 4) Done!


Now it's your turn.  Create a project with ANIMAL as your inspiration and link it to the FCCB site for your chance to win a prize.  Have fun!
