Thursday's Tip: Easter Crowns

This Easter, make some fun and easy crowns, using the Peep Squeakers Cut It Files and or the Hops and Tweets Cut It Files. Build them for your kids, or cut the images out and let your kids get in on the fun!

Materials:
Peep Squeakers Cut It Files
Hops and Tweets Cut It Files
Card stock
glue







Directions:
To create the band of the crown I just used the shape tool in Make-the-Cut. Open up the shapes, choose polygon, and double click on the rectangle.






















Measure your child's head to begin to make sure you know how big around you need your band.I then changed the size of the rectangle to 1 inch by 12 inches by just typing in the size I wanted in the upper right hand corner as shown below:
























I created two smaller rectangles the same height but 4 inches wide. I glued these to both sides of my large band.

Adding your images is simple, I just choose the base layer of the file I wanted to use and brought them into MTC.






























Then I selected the band and the base piece together, right-click, then choose weld. The two images should join toget.

Cut out the rest of the pieces as normal and assemble. Here are some crown options using Peep Squeakers and Hop and Tweets:










































And the finished Easter crowns on a very serious model!

Easy 3-D St. Patrick's Cupcake Toppers from any Graphic!

St. Patrick's Day is a time to celebrate, eat, and make everything green and fun. Liven up your cupcakes with these adorable 3-D toppers!

You can use pretty much any graphic or cut it, but since I'm totally in love with the new Kiss Me I'm Irish Collection, there was no other option for me! You want to begin by laying out the images you want to print and cut. Every program is different, but essentially you will need 4 images for each topper, with 2 images being a mirror image of the others:





























Go ahead and print and cut out, then you will want to score them each in half. I used my bone folder and board. It went super fast, and I did it by laying two on top of each other front to back, scoring both sides. When the two were done, I would lay the 3rd on one of the first two, and repeat the process and so forth.
























You will then glue together the corresponding sides:

























And continue to glue until all four pieces are attached together to make one topper:
























Push a toothpick through the bottom, and your done!
