CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Start by forming a BOX card base. There are several tutorials on youtube that are very easy to understand and follow.
Cut mattes for box bottom and back outside=5.25"x2.75" in Polka Dot Paper and 4.75"x2.25" in Zebra print (Cut 2 of each).
Cut inside and outside box side mattes=1.25"x5.25" in polka dot
Cut gatefold mattes=5"x2.25" in polka dot and 4.75"x2" in zebra (Cut 4 of each). Adhere all of your mattes to inside and outside of box.
Choos and create ten: Lion=W.4.792"xH.3", Squirrel=W.4.681"xH.2.972", Bird=W.2.278"xH.2.986", Party Pig=W.2.222"xH.3". For the rest of the critters I got as close to a 3"width as I could.
Cut 3" banners from the Birthday Bash cartridge and adhere critters to them. Then string banners together with a ribbon. Use plastic beads at the end to prevent the banners from coming off.
Cut grass for the front and back of the card using the Gypsy Wandering cartridge. Once the grass is in place adhere your lion to the front/bottom left side with dimensionals and your giraffe to the middle/back center panel.
Using the Plantin School Book cartridge, cricut gel pen and housing spell out, using the ROLY POLLY feature, "Happy Birthday From All Of Us'. Cut the sentiment to fit the box and place in bottom.
Have everyone sign individual animals and give to the recipient...They will be amazed at your effort!!! This would also be a fun way to make birthday invites for a zoo trip or petting zoo. The possibilities are endless!!!
