Cricut Users....TAKE A LOOK!!!

This is from the Cricut Chirp...
Yes, they are made with the Cricut Sesame Street Friends Cartrige (found at The Scrapbook Page) and the Cricut Expressions.

Here are her directions...
1. Cut all color layers to desired height, in this case, 23 1/2" tall. I used the DesignStudio and did all items of the same color on one mat to maximize paper usage. Some of the larger characters like Cookie, Snuffy, Big Bird will need the body cut in several pieces.
2. Be sure to label all pieces as you remove them from the cutting mat. It makes assembly much easier.
3. Cut Blackout layer for each character.
4. Assemble. For stability, I hot glued foam core poster board to the back of each figure. To help with staking in the ground, I attached 1/4" dowels to the foam board using hot glue as well. The stability difference is clear after attaching the foam board.

I don't know about you, but my mind is wondering.  Disney Princess and other Disney Characters, Halloween, Christmas, New Years, Luau, End of Summer Parties, etc.  Stop Me!

Come by The Scrapbook Page and wonder through the Cricut Cartrigages and find the one that works for you!
