So I decided since I have no children here this year to make a basket for. I would do mini baskets for place settings at the table.
Here is my quickie mini baskets: (From the Easter 2010 Seasonal Cartridge)
I used STIFF glittery felt.
The felt is from New Image Group. Have to give my dad's craft company a little plug there because you really CAN cut this stuff on your Cricut.
Using the Gypsy I used multi cut (3) the deep cut blade at 6 -
MED pressure and HIGH speed.
I laid it out this way because it is a 9x12 sheet of felt and it will pop off the mat if you try to cut too close to the edge of the felt sheet
You need a sticky mat - I helped mine using my ATG ON the mat.
I just put a line of adhesive the entire length of the mat where the felt edges were
See it works like BUTTER :)
Score just like you would paper
Glue the tabs
Make sure you use glue appropriate to your medium
Pin for a few mintues to set the hold.
Do not LEAVE the pins in or they will be hard to get out.
Just long enough to form a bond and not pop apart
Start decorating the baskets to your liking
All my pretty quick baskets
I added little cut out from "Enjoy the Seasons" made on the Imagine
Hope everyone enjoys their treats :)
I will be back later this week with the answers to my little quiz. You still have time to post your answers for a fun little drawing.
