milk-and-cookie welcome doll party to surprise her when she got home from school. I started by using Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More 2 to create little milk cartons.
I love the scoring on this cartridge, but I don't use a scoring tool (I don't own it --- yet), so I score by simply adjusting the blade depth to 2 and the pressure to 2 for scoring, changing it back to my regular settings for cutting the outline. I cut down coffee stirrers to make little straws.
These were cut at 4" on my Expression. The text was cut from Mickey Font at 1/2" in vinyl (using pressure 3, blade depth 3, and speed 3.) Adding the vinyl was an after-thought, but because the cartons are so little, they gained sturdiness so it was a breeze to add the text after the cartons were assembled using transfer tape.
For the cookies, I bought a little kit for my daughter to make them herself from air-drying clay! She loves making things for her dolls, often finding projects in the American Girl Magazine or from things she creates on her own! I am hoping this will be a fun activity for her this weekend when she is at her Nana's house!
I created a 'Welcome' banner for the party using the Pretty Pennants cartridge.
I cut the pennants at 3-1/4". In addition to the base cut, I also cut a scallop. For two of the end pennants, I cut a decorative layer.
For the pennants with the letters, I used Mini Monograms for the scalloped circles, cut at 1-3/4" and 2-1/4", and Mickey Font for the letters, cut from vinyl at 3/4". I placed pop dots between the scalloped circles. I accented them with butterflies from Paper Trimmings at 1-1/4". I cut the backgrounds of the butterflies from card stock and the black outline from vinyl, using transfer tape to apply the outline onto the backgrounds. I shaped them and added little gel pen accents.
This banner is my entry in the Cricut Circle Magazine Challenge for this month as well!
Well, of course, she was in heaven....can't wait to see how those little cookies turn out.
