November 26, 2011 2nd grade Chirstmas Party Deocrations

Good afternoon everyone!!:0)

Here are a few decorations I have been working on.



I am not sure if you can see, but I used the plastic cover to the mat to make the wrapper for the candy. I set the cutting speed to 4, to make sure the plastic did not tear. If you to try this.....make sure to use a very sticky mat.;0)

Hope you all are enjoying your weekend.:0)

November 18, 2011 Rosette Turkey #2



Good afternoon!!!
Here is my updated version of the rosette turkey.
If you would like directions, I followed the Pumpkin Rosette directions and then added my own details. For the pumpkin rosetted directions, please go to the Turkey Rosette post previouslly posted.;0)

This is what I did to alter the Pumpkin Rosette:
I did not make the first rosette
(2 strips of 1 1/2 x 12 inch-top layer),
 instead I made two of the bottom size rosettes
(2 strips of 1 3/4 x 12 inch),
 one on top ... one on the bottom.
For the tail: I cut a scalloped circle and glued the paper to that, making a half rosette. If you pinch the inner part of the paper it is easier to (hot) glue to the scalloped circle.


Ingredients: Recollections paper
                    (old) SU paper (red and orane)
                    oval shapped Wiggle eyes (Michael's)
                    1 3/8 circle punch (I think) SU
                     scalloped circle punch (Marvy)
                     Create a Critter (cartridge)
Here are some other pictures I took from other angles....



Wishing you all a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!:0)

I entered my lil' turkey in the Cooking with Cricut Challenge...you can check it out here.....

November 5, 2011 Rosette Turkey

Good afternoon everyone!!!

I made a rosette this morning. I was wanting to make some sort of Thanksgivng decoration for my son's teacher and this is what I came up with.
I found the directions for the rosette here:
http://mrsbscraftroom.blogspot.com/

Go check out here blog if you haven't been there before. She made a beautiful pumpkin rosette.:0) AND she made a video to show you how to make it.;0)

I followed the instructions she had and made the brown rosette. I added an extra rosette on the top, I believe it was
2 1/2 x 12 (2 pieces).

What I added:
3 strips of 4 x 12 scored at 1/2 inch intervals. I made a 1/2 rosette. At the bottom (to hold it together) is about a 2x12 strip of the same cardstock glued to the rosette.
The cartridge I used was Create a Critter.
The cardstock I used was: rosette and turkey (Recollections) and the rest was (old) SU.

Let me know if you have any questions.
Have a great weekend!!!:0)
