Last year, when I made this for our Halloween wall:
….a generous patron came in and announced she’d be donating a Cricut cutting machine to the library so I would never have to cut out 8000 bats (or squares, or letters, or eyeballs) ever again. Well, we received it a week or so ago, and last week, I finally got a chance to try it out. WOW! I can’t believe how amazing this is going to be to help create bulletin boards, crafts for storytime and wall displays. The possibilities are virtually endless!
After opening the box, I followed the instructions and set everything up. So nice and easy to work! It’s a Cricut Expression, and you can find out more about it here.
… got ready to cut. Now, I can make great big letters like this all the time, or wee little ones, without the hassle of having to cut out every single piece. A BIG gigantic thank you to Victoria Fraser and her Scraptease store for making this all possible for us. She has a Facebook page! Drop over and see all the great things she’s doing.
Thanks again, Victoria. This has made our lives a LOT easier!
