I created place settings for each of my three children for Thanksgiving using the Create a Critter 2 cartridge. Each set includes a place card, place mat and napkin ring.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • DCWV card stock
  • DCWV Autumn Splendor paper stack
  • Glitter
  • Stickles
  • Adhesive
  • Chipboard or cereal box

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut the tree and each layer from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge at 7.5 inches from card stock of your choice.
Cut and weld name using Cricut Craft Room Basices digital cartridge. Mine was cut at 1". Cover in adhesive and sprinkle with gold glitter.
Cut the squirrel at 3" and an acorn at 2". Run the top of the acorn through Cuttlebug using the Tiny Bubbles embossing folder. Cover the remainder of the acorn with glossy accents. Glue the acorn to the squirrel to look like he is holding it. Use stickles on the buckle of the hat to make it sparkle. Once dry, attach to the side of the tree. To make the tree stand on it's own, I used the Fancy Frames cartridge to cut two frame stands at 2" from cereal box material. I cut a 1/2" strip of green paper for grass to attach along the bottom to make a straight edge.
Next cut your choice of patterned paper to 10X12 inches. Cut "Fall" at 4" from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge. I added faux stitching around the edge to help it stand out a bit more against the background. Cut acorns at 2" (I use relative sizing, not real dial) Adhere all to the background. Laminate using the Your Story book binding machine and a 12X12 laminating folder.
For the napkin ring, I cut a squirrel and all layers at 3" (relative size). Cut a strip of patterned paper with dimensions of 1.25" X 6". Glue ends together to form a ring. Attach the squirrel to the top of the ring with adhesive of your choice.
