National Craft Month & Lamp Shade


Hi Everyone,
Welcome to a fantastic month of celebration from International Woman's Day, St Patrick's Day to our favorite ~ National Craft Month!
We plan on creating wonderful inspirations for you with a Wow Factor.

Today we are celebrating the gift of Light. Without light it is hard to create ART!

I’m Maggie with you today as I share a simple tutorial using the Cricut ExpressionProvo Craft Gypsy, and Cuttlebug from Provo Craft

Supplies: Sassafras papers, terrifically tacky tape, glitter from Ek Success (MS), Zip Dry glue, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, Colorbok fluid chalk, Brads, Prima Say it in Studs.

How to:
1.Select the shadow on the Accent Essential Cartridge and size to 4 inches, multiply by 2, then down size to 3.5 inches, downsize again to 3 inches, downsize again to 2.5 inches for a total of 8 flowers.


2. Ink the edges, spritz the flowers with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, crumple and let dry for 2 minutes. The smaller flowers add glitter using the EK Success and MS fine gold glitter.

3.Unfurl the flowers a little bit, insert a brad into the center.


4. Use tacky tape and adhere the flowers to the lampshade, add Organza Ribbon for a finishing touch.
