Good morning friends,
so I had an itch to be creative last night. I decided that I wanted to try to make the giraffe from the Create a Critter cart in vinyl. I have a friend with a young daughter who has been carting around a stuffed giraffe that she named Fluff for the last 3 yrs or so.
I used 3 different colours of vinyl, golden yellow, light brown and dark brown. I cut the first one out at the 3 inch size with all of the settings, blade depth, pressure and speed set at 2.
The second giraffe was cut out in a 6 inch size. As you can see from the photos, they are not perfect but pretty good for a first attempt at layering vinyl. I am going to check youtube and see if there are any videos on how to to it right. It's a little tricky doing it by hand but I love how cute they are.
I put the lil guy on the back of my expression so he will always be a little bit of inspiration for me.
