Card for a Child

Today I made a couple of these robots for my two grandsons in another state.  It was a super cute cut and easy to make and I know he's going to love pulling it out of the envelope and watching it spring to life. 

This robot is a customized Cricut cut from Cricut Access that I made on my explore.  I added a comb to the top of his head for hair. I have eyeball brads that I used for his eyes.  

There are about 8 brads associated with this project. Since, I am giving it to a kid I cut the project twice and layered it to the brads so they were not exposed on the back.  This was a project of love so I had a lot of fun! 

Folds flat into an envelope and springs open when you pull it out.

Gerbera Daisy Votive Light Up

I love these Daisy SVG cuts I found for FREE on Dreaming Tree.  Right away I made 2, then I made more to give away to friends.  Leaving a little flower light on people's desk made me so happy!  It was simple to make and even more fun to give as an RAK! 

I've included the video from the Dreaming Tree site, but go there and look at all his wonderful stuff.  He has several free products to try too.  He has sponsored gift certificates on Fantabulous Cricut and that's how I know about his great stuff! 

Aren't these daisies adorable?   #DreamingTree  And it's mixed media so I'm playing along at Artiste Mixed Media
I'm going to pop a couple into my easter basket decoration!  The twinkling light is so attractive and there were so many colors I made after I did this project. I went crazy making them!  They looked so beautiful altogether and I forgot to take a picture before I gave them away.  I was so excited! 
Go to DREAMING TREE and have a look!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

O' thee greenin' O' thee country.......

A regular Hershey Bar wrapped in scrapbook paper and a leprechaun added to the front.
I used the following measurements to create the wrapper and use as dimensions for the face and hat.

Below is a screenshot to show that except for the moustache and shamrock, the leprechaun is all basic shapes.  Three ovals to make the beard, squares and rectangles for the hat, ovals for the face, circles for the nose.

I used a cricut folder to emboss the hat and a little bit of stickles on the shamrock.

This was so e
asy to do and I enjoyed doing the paper piecing.  

Now, I'm off to create more of them to give away at work.
