photos of ornaments made with cricut machine

Here are some pics of the Justin Bieber ornaments that I made for my daughters tree using my cricut expressions machine. They turned out really cute!



Cute kids craft idea

Button Covers


Trim buttons with trees for a no-sew decoration. Cut a triangle from felt, and cut notches in both sides to make tree shape. Fold tree in half horizontally, and cut a vertical slit in center about the same size as button. Slip on after buttoning shirt.

ornament idea

Every year I try to come up with different handmade ornament ideas. This year I came up with an idea for my teenage daughters christmas tree that we put in her room. I'm going to use my cricut machine and make different christmas cut outs that are big enough to place small pics on. She really likes Justin Beiber so we are going to print off some pics from the internet and glue them to the christmas cut outs.
You could use any subject with this idea and even embellish each cut out with various items such as glitter, sequins,ribbon etc.
The possiblities are endless!

Felt Stocking Project

Felt Stockings

These little stockings are soo cute! I found them on MarthaStewart.com and they seem pretty simple to make!


Tools and Materials

Stocking template
Disappearing-ink marker
Pins
Felt (in assorted colors)
Scissors
Needle and thread
Pinking shears
Fabric glue


Stockings How-To

1. Download stocking template, enlarge 150 percent, and print. Cut out stocking shape.

2. Lay stocking shape on top of 2 layers of felt; trace around stocking with disappearing-ink marker. Pin 2 layers of felt together and cut out, leaving a 5/8-inch seam allowance.

3. Sew along ink line, double stitching back and forth for an inch at 2 top edges for a strong opening.

4. Cut straight line along top stocking opening. Using pinking shears, trim out rest of the stocking, cutting 1/4-inch away from the seam.

5. Fold felt over 3 1/2 inches (as seen on template) for the cuff.

6. Make a loop for hanging: Using pinking shears, cut a 3/4-by-8-inch strip of felt. Fold in half, position inside the right side of the stocking cuff, and sew.

Tip: stitch "in the ditch" (in the seam) of the cuff so that the stitches are hidden.

7. Cut out shapes from template or of your own design from assorted colors of felt. Glue shapes to cuff with fabric glue.

Exciting news!

I ordered my Cricut Expressions machine a couple of days ago and can't wait to get it! I hope its simple to use since I will be in crafting overdrive, LOL! I hope to create lots of new items for my Etsy shop and get that going well again. I ran across some software called Sure Cuts a Lot and I'm thinking of ordering that once I get the Cricut. If anyone has any opinion of the software please leave me a comment.

Happy Wednesday!
