Fall Celebrations with Cricut
Y’all… here in Florida things have begun to change…not the way it does other places, but we can tell the seasons are changing with the lowered humidity, slightly cool ocean breezes that flow across the state, and the sale of pumpkin everything in stores. Having this right in the middle of the newest Cricut Design star challenge influenced our groups theme this time for sure!
My team is spread out across the US, but everyone is ready for the change of seasons so we decided to go with a “Falling for Fall” theme and had to do something that is either related to celebrations or organizing.
I decided to go with celebrations and create a fall themed “bread wrap” that you can wrap around loafs of pumpkin bread for little favors, a fabulous hostess gift, or to dress up your celebration! I used mine for Sunday brunch and it was such a sweet simple way to dress up the party food! It started with an ink illustration, and I scanned that in, created an SVG file out of it and cut it with my Cricut Explore! It was really fun to see a design in the pen and paper stage go all the way through to a finished cut paper craft!
Here is the original ink artwork.
We scanned it in, converted to a SVG file, and cut 2 out of an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of white #110 card stock. I weeded the first one and my 7 year old did the second! You know that the family that crafts together, stays together, right?
Here is the side by side of the illustration and the Cricut cut file completed!
Next, I wrapped a little parchment paper around the bread to save my paper from getting oil spots.
Then added a ribbon…
and finally wrapped my custom fall leaves wrap around the bread! Such a sweet and easy touch!
