Wilderness Baby and the Cricut

How cute are these cupcake toppers? I made the cuts using the New Arrival cartridge for all the baby items and then used Design Space to cut the bears. I cut the bears by creating a SVG with a couple of clip art images.
I had both Cricuts chirping since the baby items were cut using my Cricut Explore and the bears with the Cricut Air. Yup! Taking advantage of having more than one machine!

Can you believe I had to go to three stores to find that red/black checked paper? I swear it's so popular right now, I couldn't believe I couldn't find it anywhere. I thought I had some so I waited until the last minute (of course) before I realized that I didn't. But Hobby Lobby to the rescue! And the patterned papers were 4 for $1! SCORE! Now, here's a shocker...I actually left Hobby Lobby spending only $1.08!

The circles were cut at 2".
The "white" cuts were actually the back side of "ugly" papers. I have tons of white cardstock but since these didn't need to be photo safe, I didn't want to use them. So I did the first thing I could think of...use the back side of "ugly" papers.
I used glue dots to adhere the toothpicks and then a smaller punched white circle to cover the backs. These white circles were also punched from "ugly" paper.
