Cooking with Cricut BLOG-AVERSARY

Welcome to Paper Crafting World and Cooking With Cricut's 2nd Blog-Aversary and our week long celebration! Each day for a whole week (May 19-26) we will be brining you fabulous projects made by our Design Team members. We have some GREAT blog candy as well as some daily file and graphic give-aways -- so you will definitely want to make PCW-CWC your daily stop every day this week!

Our theme for today is . . . Crowns/Tiaras and this is what I created!

My husband and I are very proudly raising little nerds. My seven year old is a self-proclaimed bookworm and loves everything about the local library. She has been begging for library cards for her own books.

I used Once Upon a Princess and my Gypsy for all the cuts.

For the pink envelope I cut the tag and rather than using it as a tag I scored the edges, folded and glued.
Cut at 2.25" then embossed on  big kick

Scored the sides and bottom

Crown cut on Gypsy with width 2" and height 1.5" (not original proportions).
I also had to hide the contour lines so they weren't cut.
Words printed in size 12 and 14 font. Font name: "KG Ray of Sunshine"
Rectangle cut with paper trimmer 2.25" x 3.5"
Crown cut 1" height (used gypsy to line them up where I wanted them)
Small pink oval cut and glued to back of card behind the crown.

Thanks for stopping by and make sure you head on over to Cooking With Cricut to check out the rest of the projects by our amazing Design Teams!


  1. Wonderful that she enjoys reading books. My daughter who is home from college for the Summer and will be a junior in the Fall loves to read. 1st yr when she went into dormroom she took 1 plastic container of pleasure reading books. Next yr when we moved her into an apt she took 2 plastic containers. She can read a Harry Potter book in 1 day & comprehend all she read. She is not fond of the electronic device to read with like Kindle or Nook. She prefers to turn the pages of an actual book. She does read a lot online though.
