I teach reading and created these fun door decorations, for my classroom door, using cuts from the Extreme Fonts, Teddy Bear Parade, Billionaire, and Recess cartridges. My co-workers and students loved them and I hope you do, too!! Thanks for looking. D-

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • cardstock adhesive

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

*Using the Extreme Fonts cartridge cut at 10.5 inches then adhere letters together.
Cut R,E,A,D,E,R,S,O,C,K from blue cardstock using the Big League feature.
Cut R,E,A,D,E,R,S,O,C,K from yellow cardstock using the Big League shift feature.
*Using the Billionaire cartridge cut at 2.75 inches (actual size it cuts is approx. 5 in tall)
Weld using CCR(optional) then cut out at Cedar Mill (my school) in both yellow and blue.
Adhere the blue words slightly to the left behind the yellow words giving the words a left-sided shadow.
*Using the Teddy Bear Parade cartridge cut one teacher bear at 10.5 inches and six student bears at 6 inches.
I cut mine in three shades of brown and dressed them in assorted outfits.
*Using the Recess cartridge cut one 4 inch size yellow open book with white pages and blue binding for the teacher bear to read to her students.
Optional Step!
Because my door is open half the time and closed half the time I recreated steps 1-3 for the other side.
This time as the photos show I switched the yellow and blue colors. I used the weeded out blue centers and cut one more set of the yellow Big League shift letters to give the letters another look AND so I didn't waste the cuts.
