Happy Monday! It is Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog’s weekly challenge! Today’s challenge is making a project using a pilgrim or Indian. There are some great projects and layout inspirations to check out. Click HERE to head on over and be inspired and link up your own fun Turkey Day project using at least one Cricut cut. Make sure you add a pilgrim or Indian to it! I decided to do both!
We are hosting Turkey Day this year and for the kiddo table I wanted to have something to set on their plate for a place marker. The boys will have the boy pilgrim and the girls will have either the Indian or girl pilgrim. I found this paper by MME at Michael’s! It is a 6×6 stack full of cute and fun patterns. The chevron patterns really caught my eye and it has double-sided patterns!
These were very simple and easy to make. All the cuts were at 4.5 inches from the Cricut cartridge, Paper Doll Dress Up. I cut the body with the “blackout” feature so I could stamp each face with Peachy Keen’s Simple Sallies faces. I added some pastel chalk from Stampin’ Up to the cheeks and lips. I added some Glossy Accents to the eyes and lips for shine.
For the hair, I used Cuttlebug’s embossing folder Candy Cane. I inked all the layers to add a distressed look.
For the boy pilgrim’s hat and shoes I added some black Glossy Accents. I also added some Stickles for the buckles and the necklace the Indian girl is wearing.
Once everything was finished, I cut some left over burlap I had on hand to 7×7 inch squares and tied in the middle with burlap to cinch it into a ”bow” effect. I the hot glued each character to the center of the burlap “bow”.
I think they are going to be a great addition to the Turkey day feast trimmings! Now head on over and join in the fun that this week’s Fantabulous Circut Challenge has going on!
Thanks for sharing a piece of “Pilgrim’s Progress” pie with me.
