Theme Thursday - Hannah Montana Cartridge

It is Theme Thursday over at My Cricut Craft Room and I chose to use the Hannah Montana cartridge. Let me start off by saying this is one of my all time favorite cartridges. I almost didn't buy it because I didn't have kids into that, but I use it a lot. It has several great fonts, music notes, hearts, birds, flowers, and more.

My main project for today is an awesome kraft wreath. I used the Daddy's Girl function key and did the scalloped shape on page 68. I cut a ton of these. In order to make these work, you need a relatively thin paper. I found cheap shipping paper at the Dollar Tree and it was the perfect thickness. I cut the roll into 12x12 sections. I set the dial at 2" and did autofill. I cut several sheets this way.

 I melted glue sticks in my melting pot so that it made things easier.

I wrapped each piece of paper around the end of a pencil and dipped it in hot glue before pressing to the styrpfoam wreath.

 I lined them up really close to get a really good scrunchy look.
 Once the whole wreath was covered, I added a few crumple flowers.

I love how this came out. I will warn you that about half way through you are going to want to throw it out the window and quit. Keep pushing through though because the end result is gorgeous.

I love this cart so much, that I decided to make a layout with it too. The pictures aren't great as they were snapped with my phone after dark. I just wanted you to see the Daddy's Girl font and the inking I did on it.

I hope you enjoyed the projects. Now, head on over to My Cricut Craft Room  and check out the great projects my design team sisters made.


PS.... Don't forget to come back this weekend when there will be a blog hop where erica is giving away a Cricut Mini.
