If you don’t have a Cricut yet… (you seriously need one), but you can create this by hand cutting the following rectangles and scoring each every 1/2″ down the length of each rectangle, then follow the tutorial.
You’ll need 2 strips each:
11.5 x 3″
11.5 x 2.75″
11.5 x 2.5″
11.5 x 2.25″
11.5 x 2″
11.5 x 1.75″
11.5 x 1.5″
11.5 x 1.25″
11.5 x 1″
11.5 x .75″
11.5 x .5″
OK, let’s do this! Here’s a step by step tutorial:
That, my friends, is Miss Evie! My darling, sweet grand daughter. She will be two in August and I just haven’t stayed on top of her scrapbooks.
I’m not sure why. I really enjoy the peaceful process of scrapbooking. I started my papercraft journey by scrapbooking.
A good friend, Jodie, sent me a scrapbooked birthday card many years ago, and I thought it was the most coolest thing, ever! I started scraping that same week.
Paper crafting has always been my “go to” fun place. I love the texture and layers and papers. Heck, I even love the different adhesives, cutters, scissors and ephemera. I am an office supply junkie.
Do you ever circle back to a craft that you used do to and wonder why it’s been so long since you’ve endulged? Leave me a comment and let me know what crafts you would love to get back into. I hope this is the first of many more layouts to come.
P.S. I used my Cricut Maker to cut all of the background pieces.
Have you celebrated the Maker in YOU? There is a Maker inside each and every one of us, and I think it’s time we applaud our everyday creative selves!
It just so happens, I made this maker project with my Cricut Maker! How Cool is that!?!!?
It’s crazy easy and a really fun addition to your craft area. I made another one for Evie’s bedroom with her name on it.
I mean.. hello??? You can make this in any color scheme, any word, any occasion and it just adds that little bit of homemade magic to any room. I used HeatnBond Fusible Adhestive to add the letters that I cut out with the Cricut Maker. The Cricut Easy press made applying it super easy! Did you know Cricut now has fabric with the Fusible product already on it? They Do! You can find it here!

Hello! I am back with another DIY tutorial for you! This time, we are making buttons and zipper pulls!
I used my Cricut and my Button Maker to make them. I think they turned out so super cute!
If you’ve followed my Youtube Channel for long, you will know that a couple of years ago I went a little nutzo making button flare (you can see the tutorial here). What I didn’t know then, that I figured out now is that not only can you use paper, but you can use fabric!!!
I cannot even tell you how happy this makes me! Coordinating Zipper Pulls and Buttons for my handmade creations is absolutely the icing on the cake and really provides the perfect finishing touch!
I mean… c’mon now.. is that not the cutest! How about adding a fabric button to the center of a flower, on a headband, on a purse or bag, zipper pulls on the kids backpacks and jackets!!?! Hello! I am over the moon excited!
so… .you want to know how to make these cutie patooties? Here you go!
Have you tried the new Cricut Chipboard? It works with the New Cricut Knife Blade in the Cricut Maker. This is super thick (2MM) chipboard! I mean, it’s really thick! I used it to cut out the circle and the gratitude in the frame above. Then I simply painted it!
A word of warning. It’s not fast to cut out on the Maker. It took 2 full hours to cut the two pieces out, but, it’s totally worth the Wow factor! It gives you the look of wood. It is very sturdy. It’s sturdy enough that it’s even able to support the wired on greenery I added to the inside frame.
I simply cannot wait to create more home decor pieces! If you have the Maker, you are going to want this knife blade! It is AMAZING! The Chipboard is also a must have, in my opinion!
Give someone special a candle with a personalized label, or a birthday greeting, or how about a special Easter message. I personalized a candle and some body scrub in the photo above. Endless possitiblities.
With the Cricut Maker Print then Cut feature it’s easier than ever to create some fancy handmade labels for any occassion.
Look how cute this handtowel looks with a special label that carries your brand.
