Time for another fun challenge on the Bitten By The Bug 2 (BBTB2) Cricut challenge blog. The current challenge theme is...BIRTHDAY!
OMG! I love these centerpieces I made for a three year old's Frozen themed birthday! I purchased the 3D numbers SVG from THIS shop in Etsy and they were so easy to put together. It took a little bit to figure it out at first but then they went together very smoothly.
Check out the process video:
I did "all the Design Space things" with this project...
- Offset - added to the banner to add another layer
- Print & Cut - the Elsas
- Kerning - used this new feature to type Carina's name. This saves a lot of time & patience when using script fonts. I did ungroup the "C" and lowered it a little in order to fit inside the banner.
- Slicing - I sliced her name out of the top layer of the banner
- Contouring - The second largest snowflake had a circle cut out in the center but I needed it to be solid
I made a total of seven of these babies! Using the cordless SUREBONDER hot glue gun sure did make it easier!
I ended up adding some more of the punched small snowflakes to the top left of the front side and added "Carina" to the center top of the back side (these were the cut outs from the banners) and used one punched snowflake to dot the "i's".
I hope you check out the video and I hope you give me a thumbs up and hit the subscribe button for more videos of crafts I'm creating in the Command Center.
I used poster board for the 3's for sturdiness. I purchased the silver, teal & purple glitter papers from Michaels. I ran out of the teal and knew I needed to take another trip to Michaels, but stopped at the Dollar Tree first. As I was roaming the store, I saw that they have glitter paper. And guess what...in the colors I needed. There are three 8.5x11 sheets in one pack! Dang, I wish I would have know that earlier since the 12x12 sheets at Michael's were $1.20 each (on sale).
I'm telling you, Dollar Tree is stepping up in their craft department. I recommend that you check out your local Dollar Tree before heading out to another craft store!
Now it's your turn - link up your BIRTHDAY Cricut project at the BBTB2 site before the contest date ends.
