Easter Banner with the Cricut Explore

Hi Crafters,
I love quick little home decor projects. We have a post on the side of our fireplace between our great room and kitchen. I have a little screw that I use to put up seasonal decor. Here's some fun spring Easter decor I made last weekend.
I started with 3 simple banner pennants and used several cricut images to make it perfect for Spring.

The egg is from Gypsy wonderings. It's cut from a thick glitter paper, I used the custom glitter paper setting on my explore and it cut perfectly.

The rabbit is from Give a Hoot.
The little chicky is from A Child's Year. I cut it first in cardstock then I used some heat and bond on the back of felt and cut it on the felt setting using the strong hold mat. It did well, it struggled a bit with the feet but I wasn't planning on using those so it was no sweat!

Thanks for stopping by,

Cricut Explore {Pop Up Box Card} A2 sized with Design Space File

Hi Crafters,

I have been having so much fun with my Cricut Explore!

I have been inspired by all the pop up card in a box fun that has been popping up all over. I used design space and a bunch of rectangles to make a template that would fit in an A2 size envelope. Link to my A2 Pop up Card in a Box file. It also includes the score and cut lines so it really does all the hard work for you!

Here is the outside of the card when it's not popped up. I embossed the outside pieces with my cuttlebug, I even sized and included the outside rectangles with this file.
The bright daffodils are from Walk in my Garden.

Thanks for stopping by!
I'd love to hear if you use the file drop me a comment! Link to my A2 Pop up Card in a Box file

Happy Crafting
