For my upcoming birthday my Mom got me a new Cricut Explore. Yippee!!
Okay, I’ll be honest.
She and my Dad overheard me giggling at work and asked what on Earth I was up to.
When I admitted that I was checking on my Explore order, she decided that would be my birthday present from them.
Pretty much the same way I got my original Cricut and Silhouette machine. He he.
So, the past few days I’ve simply been playing around with it seeing what it can and can’t do.
Last night I loaded the scoring stylus and made several heart pillow boxes.
I started with a Make It Now Project by TomKat Studios; however, I couldn’t see paying .99 cents for a simple heart.
Especially since I planned to use my layered heart punch and the cork stack.
My cork hearts~
So, I customized the project by changing the size of the box and by getting rid of the heart.
And even better free.
