Anyway, I am overjoyed to be joining the group of crafters at Cooking with Cricut and even more excited that our first project is in Celebration of Dr Seuss and Read Across America.
Dr. Seuss was an interesting challenge - there isn't a Dr Seuss cartridge, afterall! I wanted to incorporate several different stories into a little treat bag for my kids.
Thing 1 and Thing 1 are cut from a digi stamp from Melin at Paper Crafting World. I had never used a digi stamp before, but loved these for this project (since I often call my kids Thing 1 and Thing 2, lol). I printed her image out on 3 colors of paper, handcut them and layered them.
The bag is cut from Mini Monsters.
(I used my Gypsy to hide the mosnster face that was supposed to be cut into it as I just wanted a plain bag.)
Next came one of our favorite stories as a family "Wocket in My Pocket". The Wocket is cut from Mini Monsters and is actually a card (Mini-monsters has a card version of each monster on the cartridge). In the middle is what wocket is really supposed to look like.
Next came the treats for inside the bag. First I made them each a bookmark. This is cut from B is for Boy. I only cut the base layer of the fish and used the gypsy to hide it's scales and face. I hand cut the oval eye and drew in Seuss-Like lines/face to make it look more like the fish from The Cat in the Hat.
And then for my favorite part. Green Eggs and "Hamm". I used my Toy Story Cartridge to cut out Hamm (the piggy bank from Toy Story) and attached it to a bag of green foil covered eggs). I didn't label it just so I can see how long it takes my kids to figure out :)
I hope you enjoyed my project! It was so much fun to make (Can't wait to give it to the kids!)
