Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

I used Cricut Craft Room to make the file for this. See the attached file
I applied the paper in 6x6 sections to the cutting mat. I used one layer on the cutting mat in Cricut Craft Room. Make sure you use at least 6" of paper on the cutting mat, the more surface area the paper is in contact with the cutting mat the better it sticks to the mat and less chance to slip when it is being cut.
Here is the cutting mat after I cut the paper.
This tree was originally going to be black, but as I removed it from the cutting mat I noticed how cute the paper on the back side with the words was.
Here is my cute little Owl assembled. I used pattern paper for all of this from the 6x6 Doodlebug paper pack. Don't be afraid to use patterned paper to make an image.
After I assembled the characters I put them on the birdhouse. I put the owl in front of the scalloped edge piece on the bottom. It looked better and gave it some dimension.
Using a Pencil Trace the outline of the bird house onto the Imaginsce Monster Mash Tricks and Treats 12x12 sheet of paper. Then cut it out. Apply adhesive to the entire sheet of paper. I used the Xyron Creatopia to apply permanent adhesive to the paper. Then carefully line up and apply it to the base of the KaiserCraft MDF Birdhouse.
Get the black sheet of Best Creation glitter paper. Get the 2 scalloped edge items in the bird house. Trace those on the back side of the black glitter paper. Then cut those out by hand. Apply adhesive to the entire back side of those papers and apply them.
