Thursday's Tutorial #12

Today's tutorial puts the spotlight on one of our Fantabulous
design team members - Penny Light!
One of Penny's creations was recently featured in the Cricut Chirp.
Click here for details.

Here are the instructions to make this cute "Under the Sea" Charm Bracelet:

Cartridges Used - Create a Critter


1. Cut the characters you want to use from a sheet of shrinking material. Cut at 2 inches each. Set the blade housing at 6, speed at 2, pressure at 5, and cut each twice.

2. Color both sides of the plastic characters with colored pencils or sharpies. Remember that as it shrinks, the colors will get bolder.

3. Punch a hole in each character before you bake it.

4. Bake as instructed on the shrink film package and allow to cool.

5. Penny used a silver bracelet. She also added blue shell piece beads. This bracelet would be perfect for a pre-teen girl or theme party favor.
