Fantabulous Cricut Ch# 85 Book Lover
Welcome to Glenda's Cards! It is time for another fun challenge at Fantabulous Cricut! I am so excited to be returning as a design team member for this next term. Thank you Robin and Amy Jo! I want to welcome the new design team members! I look forward to working with each of you. Now to our challenge--Challenge 85 is Book Lover. This can be a book, a project with a book on it, or a bookmark.
I found a cute group of books on Cricut Wrap It Up cartridge on page 57. I chose to make the little box. Using the Box feature, I cut the image at 9 1/4" from a sheet of blue cardstock! For the book layers, I used Design Studio and determined it needed to be cut at 2 5/8" to fit the box properly. I cut the Books images and also the Layer images from four different colors of cardstock. These layers were glued together and then glued on the box. Quite a colorful group of books! I cut a small piece from a sheet protector and glued it inside the box behind the cut out opening.
Using the phrase feature on the same page, I cut the mat and "You made it" at 2 1/4". To add the color blue, I cut the mat again at 2 1/2". This is not a perfect shadow, but it works for me!
I think the little box turned out cute. I will make another box and will give them to my grandsons on report card day! I think it will be a nice little treat holder. Another suggestion is little gift boxes for teachers.
Now it is your turn to play along with us! Be sure to visit FCCB and see all the amazing projects that the design team has created for inspiration! Remember you will need to follow the theme and as always, add a Cricut cut to your project! Deadline for entering is midnight November 13.
Hope you enjoy this little project and are inspired to try this fun Cricut cut!
