Cricut Wednesday

NEW Cricut Cartridges!!!

Cricut has a few fun new cartridges and so I thought I would combined two of my favorites in today's craft 



  • Cricut Machine, cutting mat, etc.
  • Cricut Cartridges: "Ribbons & Rosettes" and "Damask Decor"
  • Adhesive 
  • Ruler
  • Blue and white cardstock

  1. Start by cutting pieces from your "Ribbons & Rosettes" cartridge:
    1.  ONE 7 1/2" from white cardstock
    2. SIX 2 1/2" from blue cardstock
    3. ONE 4" Rhinestone/Medallion Shadow/Shift from white cardstock
    4. ONE 3 1/2"  Rhinestone/Medallion Shadow/Shift from blue cardstock
    5. ONE 3"  Rhinestone/Medallion Shadow/Shift from white carstock

  1. Next cut your piece from the "Damask Decor" cartridge:
    1. ONE 3" using blue cardstock

  1. Fold your six pieces along the cutting lines making an accordion "back and forth" fold.
  2. Adhere the ends of each piece and then secure the first piece to the last making a circle of folded papers which is now your medallion 
  3. Adhere your medallion to your largest white piece
  4. Layer the remaining white and blue circle pieces onto each other according to size.
  5. Secure your blue piece to the top and you are finished.

Many of the Cricut Cartridges can easily compliment each other.  Give it a try...see what great things you can create using 2-4 cartridges.  I would love to see what you come up with! :O)

Happy Crafting!
