Hi, and welcome to the Cricut Crafts Blog Hop!!
If you've come from Heather at Paper Junkie, you are in the right place! If you just came across the hop, please start at the beginning over at Jenny's Blog, Crazy About Cricut.
Okay, time for my project:
My son, Bryce, just celebrated his 11th birthday and his favorite thing right now is LEGOS!!! Do you have one of those kiddos too??
Anyway, I designed a Lego Mini-figurine head card for his birthday. While there is no Lego Cricut Cartridge, I had to come up with something....
Using my Gypsy, I combined some images from both Robotz and a couple periods and 1/2 of a parenthesis from Plantin School Book for the smiley mouth. I welded two of the Robotz image, flipping one upside down, to create a shape very close to the shape of a Lego Mini-Fig head.
I set the file up to cut the face (with the eyes and smile cut outs) on the left and the background face piece of the right. The card base was set-up on layer 2 on my Gypsy. I welded two of the background pieces together to form the folded base.
Here you can see all the parts ready for assembly. I sized the head to be 4 1/4" wide and just over 5 1/2" tall, you'll see why in just a couple steps.
So, I folded the base and I was ready for assembly. Like the Create a Critter carts, this card became very easy to assemble. :)
See, easy and quick assembly. :) Okay, so the bottom bump (called studs) on the Lego Mini-Fig head was a little long... so I used my paper trimmer to cut the card to 5 1/2" so it can fit in a standard A2 card. Don't forget to round the corners with a corner chomper or just by hand.
I added some details and doodling with my Sakura White Gel Pen.
Then, using the same face files, sized to 1", I made some Mini-fig confetti to put inside the card. Since Bryce was turning 11, his card was filled with 11 little friends. :)
If you'd like the Gypsy file for this cute little Mini-fig card, please let me know. I'd be happy to share.
