Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
25 Days of Christmas
with 25 Cricut projects a day.
Don't forget to stop by Erica's blog for 24 more projects
today . . .
and every day in December.
For my Made With Kids project today I created a snow stencil.
2 sheets 12x12 contact paper or vinyl
1 sheet 12x12 cardstock
Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridge
Place sheet of contact paper on both sides of cardstock. Start by lining up one corner and slowly taking the backing off while smooth out any bubbles. Don't worry if it's not perfect.
Cut the ice skaters from the boarder function (shift) on page 40 at fit to page (7 1/4 inches). You'll want to use your multi cut function too.
You'll be left with this. The contact paper peels off of the cardstock nicely so if you wanted to you could use the cut for another project.
Take a spray bottle and fill with water. Add food coloring until you reach your desired color. I used 5-6 drops of blue.
Place your stencil on the snow and let your kid spray away. The contact paper acts as a water barrier making your stencil last longer.
Next time I might try adding more food coloring because it seemed to take a lot of sprays to start coloring the snow.
