Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Use the Cricut Craft Room file provided. Select Fall Pattern Paper and Co-ordinating Card stock. I used the fall paper printed from Enjoy the Season's Imagine Cartridge for the favor box.
Favor Box- Score Box at tabs and the square base. Fold and glue tabs to the each neighboring side panel.
Squirrel- Ink your Create A Critter 2 Squirrel Animal. Emboss layers with your Cuttlebug for more texture. I used Divine Swirls for the tail. Place the bonnet on the girl pilgrim and snip edges at the bottom to adjust to the curve of her head. Cut a scrap of black card stock and place behind the eyes, nose, mouth, and glue in place. Layer all pieces and glue together.
Acorn- Cut a top in green, Cut a top in brown. Cut the leaf on the brown piece off and layer on the the green acorn top behind to let the leaf show. Emboss the acorn bottom if desired. I use the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder. Ink around edges if desired. Glue all layers down. Add font stickers on the top of acorn to personalize.
Leaf- Emboss leaf if desired. These leaves are embossed with a Damask Decor Cuttlebug folder.
Favor assembly- Wrap favor in 12 x 12 matching tissue paper. Take assembled acorn and punch with a hole punch. Thread ribbon through hole and tie bow on top of favor wrap.
Assembly- Glue leaf on bottom side of box. Layer squirrel on top of leaf. Place tissue wrap inside. Enjoy!
