DT: Crusaders’ Spirit Earrings

   


Hi,

This is my next post for Craftwell. 
For this post, I made some Crusaders’ Spirit earrings.


I uploaded part of the school logo to Cricut Design Space and cut some HTV in red and silver glittery vinyl.

I used the Taylored Expression “Designer Dangles” dies to cut leather felt also from Taylored Expression:



Once, I die cut the dangles, I was able to heat transfer the vinyl die cuts to them and use earrings wires (Taylored Expression ) to finish the cute school spirit earrings.


To display the earrings, I used cards from DCWV papers to cut pouches to hang the earrings.


I enjoy designing jewelry from time to time, but I find it more challenging than paper crafting, however this project was super easy and fun.

DT: Christmas Notepad Holders Using Vinyl Die Cuts

 

Hi,

This is post for Craftwell.
For this post, I made some little, easy to sell. gifts for the Christmas Bazzar at our parish for the AHG Booth:




I found some cute mini chalk (white) board easels at the Dollar store and decided to decorate them with vinyl to make some cute Christmas themed notepads holders. As friend of mine told me how easy it was to use die to cut on vinyl, thus I decided to try this method instead of using my Cricut.

My friend was right, it was super easy, but it has a learning curve. Like using transfer tape to apply the shapes, and intricate designs might be more challenging. No heat setting needed for this project.

In general, it was a fun experience and I totally recommend it.

DT: Paper Pinwheels



Hi,

This is my next post for Craftwell.
For this post, I played with the pinwheels die from CTMH and made a "Merry Christmas" banner and several other projects for our Festival at the (Pumpkin) Patch for the AHG troop:

To some pinwheels, I attached mini wooden clothpins to the back, so they can be put on Christmas trees or on big paperclips to make bookmarks: 



To some, I punched a whole to add some twine and a little light bulb bead:


To some of them, I added push pins to attach to pencils:


I made many die cuts and gave them to the girls at the troop to decorate them and we sold them at the festival:
