I have been playing with the cricut and paper crafts in general. My goal is to eventually offer some great gift cards that go with my table runners and quilts that I make. This way the customer has a super gift item and everything is done for them, just add a sentiment and sign their name.
A simple card I made. Not that great, but cute.
This is a gift card holder. It started as a toilet paper roll, then covered with card stock. I found several sites in the internet that had directions for these.
I love making these poinsetta flowers. I ran out of yellow pieces from old silk flowers, thats what I prefer to use for the center. So on these, its yellow paint. I got a zig 2 way glue pen and used that on the edges of some of the petals, then some silver cosmetic glitter, I think I like them better with the glitter.
I got the svg cutting file and the instructions on how to make them on Penny Duncan's blog.
With me being new, i don't have a lot of things yet. Both the red and white poinsettas, I sprayed with a homemade concoction I made. I used liquid hairspray, pearlescent white cosmetic grade mica and sprayed the petals before putting together. For the leaves, I added a touch of Tim Holtz distressed reinker to some hair spray with the mica. It has helped up great! The mica doesn't come off at all.
