This month's theme at Cut Cardstock is Summer Entertainment.
At home, we like getting together with family, friends and neighbors. We also like going to carnivals and festivals. Sometimes we just like to sit down, relax and be lazy, watch a movie or play board games, especially when the temperature rises. And all that is good too, right?
This year we have a few young children coming over for a family get together and I think they will have lots of fun with these masks. I am hoping it will keep them busy for a while along with some planned games. I am also making some treat boxes for them to take back home. Those I will show on my next post. What you see here is just the beginning of it all.
I found the masks in a Cricut cartridge called Life's a Party.
I die cut all parts and embossed the first layer of each mask with a Fiskars plate, as seen in the top right photo. I die cut the stars and doilies from the gold glitter cardstock that is on sale this month at the Cut Cardstock store. The glitter does not come off, love it! and it has a lovely gold color. The color cardstock is from the Basis Collection, 80# cardstock and the colors are so very pretty.
I will go around the Merry go Round for the steps...
Starting clockwise from the top left pic: I adhered all die cut layers of each mask, the arrow goes through the slit and then I secure it so it with a bit of glue so it does not keep coming off. I then made a pencil mark where I will be making a hole with the hole punch. I then use a cropadile to attach an eyelet and the ribbon that will go around the kid's head....what a mouth full that was, lol. You can use elastic too.
And here they are...I think they look fabulous and the kids will have a blast getting masked.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to write them in the comments area.
I want to thank you so much for stopping by.
