Project Cut Files

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut Cricut Craft Room (CCR) File using the Cricut Chalkboard Font Cartridge and white vinyl. This top number is my house number, as I will be displaying on my front porch- be sure to change the number in the CCR file before you cut! Apply transfer tape and once the chalkboard paint is dry apply to the surface of the pan.
Using the chalk marker, add shadows and embellish around vinyl as desired. This will create more of a chalk feel to the words.
Cover chipboard mini banner with cuts from the Cricut Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge. The pieces should match the chipboard perfectly cut at 4". Thread burlap ribbon through holes on each banner and hot glue the banner to the bamboo skewers. Add the word "hello" to one of the banners using a black fine tip marker.
Cut pinwheel shapes using the Cricut Close to My Heart Artise cartridge and following the sizes presented on the Close to My Heart Pinwheel stamp set (May 2013 Stamp of the Month). Stamp the pinwheel shape on white cardstock using Hollyhock (hot pink) ink. Trim image and stack on top of the other two pinwheel shapes, securing with a brad in the center. Hot glue to bamboo skewer.

(I had to trim this bamboo skewer down to have the pinwheel placed where it is. Very carefully cut)
Wrap Hollyhock (hot pink) Stitched Ribbon around intersection of bamboo skewers, tying a bow. Secure with hot glue to ensure it does not come untied.
Your pan should now be done and ready to display!
Clean up 9x9 metal baking pan and apply several coats of chalkboard paint.
Drill two holes in the sidewall of the pan. Carefully thread burlap ribbon through holes, creating a hanger. Attach a bow to the top using the burlap ribbon and twine. Be very careful as the drilled holes can be very sharp.
Arrange three bamboo skewers on the left side of the pan, resting on the bottom lip. Tack down using glue dots until you are pleased with the arrangement. Hot glue the bottom tips of the skewers and anywhere else they touch the pan. Apply glue to the intersection of the three skewers to reinforce.
