CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • card stock with bird design
  • picture frame
  • coordinating colored cardstock
  • sticky raised dots
  • liquid adhesive

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Open Cricut Craft Room.
Open Extreme Fonts.
Drag and drop the letters "mornings are for the birds" on virtual craft mat (using standard 2.5 font size)
Merge the letters to form the words by overlapping the letters slightly and allowing them to weld.
If using a craft mat less than 12" across, you will need to rotate the words 90 degrees so they fit lenght wise on to the mat.
Tip-If rotating, first group all of the letters in a word together by clicking on and holding down and across the word to highlight in blue. This allows the entire word to rotate at once, instead of just individual letters.
Cut out letters and glue onto 8" x 10" bird cardstock.
Place inside 8" x 10" picture frame.
Cut out a 2"bird, a 2 1/2" (reversed) bird, and a 3" bird; using Simply Charmed cartridge and colors coordnated with bird cardstock.
Stick birds to picture frame using raised, sticky dots.
You're done!!
