Hello readers! I am excited to be here today to share with you this CUTE craft, if I don’t say so myself, that I made! I got the idea from pinterest, where else, am I right?! 🙂
I love how my project turned out! Even though it’s a LOT more simple than the one I found on pinterest I had fun making it and really love the simple look of it! Keep reading to see what I did to make mine.
I started off with 5 supplies:
* green, orange and white cardstock
* black vinyl
* pop dots
* adhesive squares
* 8×10 frame
I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a carrot cut file that I bought from the Silhouette Online Store. It already had the teeth marks in the file so it worked PERFECT!
That was the easiest part and usually is! I absolutely LOVE my Silhoutte!! It’s a great machine and totally worth the money! (No, I’m not getting paid to say that, but even if I was it would still be true. I’m giving you my honest opinion!)
Once I got the cardstock and vinyl cut out I moved to my desk to start getting it all put together.
I placed the 4 carrots out of the 8.5×11 paper and then decided to put the paper in the frame. I’m SO glad I did that because I completely forgot that my frame was 8×10!! So I cut down the white cardstock and then fit it into place in the frame.
Once I did that I realized only 3 of the carrots would fit comfortably in the space so I figured out the spacing between them and got to work.
First I placed the word ‘YUM’ on the paper where I wanted it to go. I decided to use Mod Podge to make sure I didn’t lose any letters. The brush I was working with was kinda big for the little word so I accidentally got glue above the word and I’m kicking myself that I didn’t pay attention better. Oh, well.
I only wanted the carrot that was bitten into to stand out so I glued the other two down with my adhesive swaures and then put the pop dots on the last one right above the word.
Here’s a view from above it. I really love how it turned out!
My favorite part is the carrot with a bite in it and the word ‘YUM’ under it! I love doing project with pop dots! They’re one of my favorite ways to make projects more interesting.
I have a spot in my living room where I do my holiday decorating and this is where I decided to hang up this framed Easter project. I LOVE it! (Have I mentioned that yet?!)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Come on over to my blog to see what else I’ve been working on! Have a great crafty weekend!
