12 Days of Christmas with Joans Craft World
On the third day of Christmas…..
Today we are creating Cricut covers for 2 year planners.
This is so much fun. I will be using the Cricut Expression machine, Cricut Doodlecharms cartridge, Cuttlebug with embossing folders and paper from DCWV called the Sweet stack.
Ooops I forgot also a 2 year day planner calendar. I found these planners by Studio18. They are so cute because of all the themes that they have. Since I decided to make cupcakes Studo18 had a cupcake planner with each month showing a different decorated cupcake. So all I did was decorate the outside cover.
First I cut with my Cricut Expression machine the cupcakes at 2″. For the icing of the cupcake I used pastel colored cardstock and for the bottom paper wrapper I used craft paper.
Now comes the really fun part. I used three embossing folders with my Cuttlebug to add some dimension to these cupcakes. For the bottom wrapper I used the forest branches embossing folder. I put the craft cardstock that looks like the wrapper into the embossing folder sideways so the lines of the branches really looks like a cupcake. For the icing I used the new polka dot embossing folder and also the spots & dots.
These were so much fun to make and are going to be fantastic Christmas stocking “stuffers” for our family and friends this holiday.
Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!
