Here we have a project my daughter had to do for school. She got to design a trap to catch a Leprechaun. For this we used the cricut with Paper Doll Dress to make a Little Leprechaun guy. Who would help lure in the real one.
We also used Plantin Schoolbook to make a fence that would hypothetically shut once the leprechaun was inside. But the Leprechaun would be so attracted to all the gold that was in the trap that he wouldn't want to leave any way. We used lots of gold glitter to make the path and then we used glittered dew drops in a black bucket for the end of the rainbow.
In the end Angelina's trap did not catch the real Leprechaun but its ok neither did any of the other traps in her class so we can not actually say whether the leprechaun trap would have worked.
Here are a couple of pictures of Angelina with her trap.
So I got the Idea for this from the Cricut Message board but to my knowledge there was not an actual cutfile made so I went to my handy dandy design studio and created one using Plantin Schoolbook. All I had to do was make 2 identical hearts flip one and weld them together. I have a cutfile made but I honestly have no clue how to share the file. If anyone has some advice please share with me.
Here is a picture of the finished card front
Here is the back of the card
I like how it turned out and I know he will like it when he sees it.
Your Love this Valentines day? Will you be making your own cards or other craft to share with the ones you love? Today I was sitting around with my gypsy in hand just foolin around. Didn't have a project in mind or anything but as it turned out I came up with a pretty cute yet simple card I will give to either my husband or one of my kiddos for Valentines day.
For this project I tool the word love from Walk in My Garden and the heart from Accent Essentials and welded them together. I embossed the welded pieve with a sizzix A2 folder and filled the little dots with scribbles very berry red 3d paint. Here you can see the finished project.
And as always thank you for stopping by. Feel free to comment or become a follower you know how us bloggers love our comments.
