Thursday Tutorial with FCCB....Vinyl on your Toes!

Holly here with another Thursday Tutorial for you.  You may be asking " Why is there a photo of cute painted toenails on a paper crafting blog?" 

Well, guess what those little crowns are made of....VINYL......Eeeeeek!  Yep- I found this clever idea from Jennie at Craft O Maniac.

Here's how she did it:

So I was staring at my hideous looking chipped toes today ... and thinking PEDI... AND ballet flats are fab., but not in the hot summer sun and heat. TIME FOR A NEW PEDI. So i gave myself a pedi. While waiting for my toe nail polish to dry I checked my blogs and FB ha! ... and while sitting at the desk i looked at my cricut... and BOOM it hit me.... I had to cut out some small vinyl prints from my cricut. I used the "Home Decor cartridge" once cut they went on my toes. I cut out cupcakes, lady bugs, birdies, and crowns. I liked the crowns best!!!

How cute are the little birdies?
You can use a sewing needle to pick out the itty bitty vinyl pieces. It works great.
I used my cricut spatula to pick up the little piece and place it on my toe carefully.
I sealed it with a good coat of top coat nail polish.

How fun is this idea?   I'd love to have given Jennie's tutorial a try but my "un-pedicured" toes have no business getting photographed at this moment so you'll just have to enjoy Jennie's cute toes at this time.

Hope this tutorial inspires you to flaunt some Cricut toes and make sure you check out Jennie's blog Craft O Maniac too.
