Koi Fish Vinyl on Candles and Chinese New Year Envelopes

I made these for a friend's Dad. It was his birthday and he loves Koi fish. Used regular Cricut vinyl! I also ended up making some for family, too, so I used the bamboo. I also made Chinese New year envelopes around the same time. I love making homemade gifts!

Tea Cup favor take 1!

So this was a favor I made from the TBBM2 cartridge. It was tough! It took me a few trys, but here it is! I'm going to play with this more to see if I can get it to look more "seamless" but for now, this is it! The only thing I think I need to do is invest in an expression machine so I can make things bigger, but I won't do that until I'm done with grad school.

Sorry I've been MIA!

It's been a while since I actually created something useful! Now that the summer here and I have a few weeks of NOT doing school work, here are some of the creations I've made. I purchased the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2 cartridge and love it so far! It's a small pain to change out the scoring blade and the cutting blade, but it's worth it for the more intricate cuts/scores. I found that the gable boxes don't need the score blade - you can use a bone folder and it's equally as fast because you would spend the same amount of time changing out the blade instead of scoring it on your own. Please excuse the bottom picture - it was the prototype and you can see little tape sticking out =/
