I had a lot of fun with these but I ran out of wood so not all parties are whole. I always wanted more dolls when I was young, is that showing now? I used the originals of these as the bridal table center piece for my son's US wedding.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Plywood
  • Cardstock
  • Paint
  • Googly Eyes
  • Small Silk Flowers
  • Micro Pearls
  • Cricut Ink

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Hide any unwanted contours on wedding gown then insert Cricut Ink and let it draw the accents on the dress. Hide those contours, show all other contours, insert blade and cut. I did the brides and grooms @ 11", the flower girls and ring bearers @ 7". I am unable to add my cuts as I had to use my CDS to hide the contours, I have a real problem with hiding contours in Craft Room.
Do flower girl dress in same fashion as bridal gown. Cut the groom and ring bearer layers.
Cut dolls out of wood using a pattern cut from lightweight chip board. Attach dolls to ovals (cut from Wild Card) using wood glue, paint wood. When paint is totally dry (usaully 24 hours) add face features (I cut a paper templete the same size as the doll cuts to help).
"Dress" your dolls with the layers and decorate with emblishement, micro beads, whatever you want to use.
Cut flower girl basked from Easter 2010 @ 2.5", assemble, fill with batting (or whatever works for you) and add tiny silk flowers.
Cut ring bearer pillow from Cricut Craft Room Basics @ 1', .75" and .50", layer with foam pads, add "rings", I had some jewelry findings with gold, "rings". I used my hot glue gun to attach flowers, flower baskets and ring pillows.
