Welcome to another challenge at Exploring Cricut! Diane has asked us to create something using the Cricut Celebrations cartridge candy cut on page 111. Who would have thought candy could be tough??? lol... I elected to do a Christmas scrapbook page. This particular page celebrates the first Christmas we had our dear granddaughter, Gloria. She had arrived a few short weeks earlier from her home country, Guatemala. As you can tell from the photos she loves picture books almost as much as we love her!
So here's the project...
And a closeup of the candy...
I cut the candy at 4 3/4 inches tall (white for the candy itself and red or green for the blackout image). I placed the cut image on top of each blackout image. I then applied a tiny pop dot to the left over "inside" of each "candy" cut and placed it on top of the center, taking care to twist it so you could still see the blackout red or green backing. I then cut pieces of wax paper (yes, the kind from your kitchen) and attached it to the back of each candy with tape. I then took pieces of baker's twine and gathered each end of the wax paper around the tapered end of the cut. The final step... cut each end of wax paper with pinking shears.
Thanks for looking and Happy Cricuting!!!
