CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut 5" gargoyle from Cricut Frightful Affair cartridge from shrink film. Add color by inking or use marker or floodfill on the Imagine. On the Expression, I set my machine to multi cut 4, speed 3, pressure 5, and blade 6. Use a hole punch to make holes to turn this into a pendant! To see the brand of shrink film I used, lots of photos, my tip for adding color, and all my techniques, check my blog post on this project: http://www.withglitteringeyes.blogspot.com/2012/10/falling-for-halloween-blog-hop.html
Bake shrink film as directed on the package. Once the shape has shrunk completely, use an old wooden spoon to press the image down to ensure that it is flat!
Seal the shape and bead the necklace, using the gargoyle as the focal point. To see the brand of sealant I used and my other tips, check my blog post on this project: http://www.withglitteringeyes.blogspot.com/2012/10/falling-for-halloween-blog-hop.html.

To see how to do beading and finish with crimp beads and findings, check my previous post on that: http://www.withglitteringeyes.com/2010/11/have-i-mentioned-i-am-addicted-to.html
Wear and scare!
