CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • card stock
  • adhesive
  • black Cricut marker
  • book binding material/machine
  • Cricut Craft Room

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Using Cricut Craft Room, create a template to use when positioning your letters and images. The template should be the size of the pages of the book. This book is 5 1/2"x8 1/2" so for this template I created a rectangle that size in CCR. Just be sure you do NOT cut or draw this image.
Use Extreme Fonts, the BigLeague feature, to create all the letters. For this size book the letters were 4 1/2."
Use Cricut cartridges of your choice to find images that start with each letter of the alphabet you are working on. Create the layers necessary for the image, then position your image and letter on the template.
Place card stock on the cutting mat, making sure to position it where the template is positioned. Replace the cutting blade with a black Cricut marker and draw your images/letters on the card stock.
Repeat steps 2-4 for every letter of the alphabet.
Create a front and back cover for the book with cardstock and create a title with die cuts/stickers of your choice. The title of this book is "My ABC Coloring Book" and the word "My" was cut using Cricut Craft Room Basics, "ABC" was cut from Extreme Fonts, and "coloring book" was cut from Cursive 101.
