A few non mini things...

I made a few more things on my Cricut.
My first  birthday card for a mini friend and a lovely little box for my 12 year old granddaughter who loves music and plays the flute.  
Just having fun and the little birthday words cut out so nice this will be the idea for making tiny minis sigs! 
I made a dad's folding card popout but I messed it up so it's all glued down,  but the glue I had didn't stick well Oh and learn!  I just love butterflies so I just did a simple one!

I got a new toy, I got a new toy, I got a new toy!!

My early 65th birthday present from my hubby!
Cricut-Explore One!
 I bought a Bluetooth adaptor
for it to make it wireless.
 I saw it n HSN and had to have it!
 I wanted to learn to do some miniatures
 like lettering for little signs for shops.
top side
side of the box
The machine!!
see on the side the grey pocket or cup? It holds
Cricut pens because it can WRITE too!
but it will hold others too if I shop for the right sized ones.
It will even copy my own handwriting!
So it works off my computer as well as cartridges.
 BUT the thing that sold me was I can CHOOSE
whatever I want to use and upload it into
  Cricut Design Space !!
see what it is like:
a place for my tools
it cuts almost anything!!!
paper, cardstock light weight or heavy,
chipboard, adhesive cork board, magnet sheets,
fabric, iron on, felt and duck tape
to name a few. Oh, even foam sheets!

here's the dial and has a custom
selection which entails a long list of things.
Here's what I did in the adhesive vinyl
for my first project.
I put my name on my cute pink tool case!
 I used a font (dingbat) that I uploaded in to the
Circuit Design Space for the butterfly!
I torn off the tiny antennas because I didn't take it off right
but they were as thin as a hair!
This thing cuts fine details!!
Here's what I made with foiled cardstock
added a thin magnet to the back of the big one.
 The two are the same only I resized it and did a
tiny one it's only 1inch wide and the big one
wing to wing is 4 inches across !
(click on this pic it to see the little better)
here's some lettering I did for a poster
 project in vinyl
these are big letter maybe 2 inches wide
...didn't measure them.
So if you want to see one in action
go to youtube and
type in  Cricut Explore One Tutorials!!
There are many others
Cricut machines too like Explore Air and etc..  
It's awesome can't wait to do minis with it
and I will post it when I do!!!!
wooo hoo!!!    
Have a blessed day!
