I just found an wonderful home for my original Cricut machine. My best friend’s daughter, Grace is having a birthday and I thought this would be a fun present. Grace is turning 13 and has been crafting with me since she was three. My original bug is like new since I use either my Expression or E2 when I craft.
Since this is a used birthday gift, I wanted the presentation to be special.
Grace’s favorite cartridge is Pagoda so I thought she would enjoy having a card made from the Pagoda cartridge, and of course, the cartridge too. I cut the shape and layers at 4 ½ inches and used the glue and fold method to make the base of the card. I used the Plantin cartridge for the heart and Word for the sentiment.
I wrapped several sheets of 6 x 6 papers so she could practice her cuts and included a cutting guide. I also had two new mats that needed a good home.
Happy Early Birthday Grace!!
