25 Days of Christmas - Trees

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.

Here is my project . . .

It's a canvas painting using contact paper and the Winter Frolic cartridge.

This project is incredibly easy and looks amazing (I actually made two).

To start with cut a piece of 12x12 contact paper. Leave the backing on and place on your circut mat.

Your cuts are as follows:
Trees page 40 - boarder - 4" - 2
Stars page 71 - boarder<s> - 1 1/4" - 5
Circles page 48 - layer - 3" - 3

Place on canvas.

Spray paint.

Peel off.

Display your work proudly.

It's that simple! I hope you'll give this a try. As an FYI I tried this with vinyl and it didn't keep the paint out as well as the contact paper.
