Oh my, these new files cut so cute!!! I am cutting a bunch of the trees for the kids to decorate and then put around the house. The candy canes were so easy! I'm going to cut a bunch of them and have the kids put them together to hang on the tree! They are so cheerful!
I bough some new glitter. They are tiny little bottles called sugar coating. The colors are stunning. Nice and vibrant and very fine. They are great to work with and have such sparkle! I'll take pictures of these adorable projects and upload them tomorrow.
I cut the candy cane on the left and used glitter on the white background. Then I put a little sparkle just above the cut line. They cut beautiful!
These files are cut using machines that look much like printers but instead of a print head, they have a blade that cuts where the lines are! I cut the background from white so that the middle of the candycane would be white. Then I cut the candy cane from red. Last I cut the bow from blue. When you get the file, the layers look just like they do in this pic. All you need to do is move them apart to cut.
I filled up a whole page with the white background so I would have many candy canes. I did the same with the red and the green (I did green bows).
Here are some photos of the candy canes after were were done adding glitter. They are so cute! We are going to add them to our Christmas tree this year.
I love making hand made things with the kids each year. All three candy canes came from one file.
I realize there are bad shadows on this photo, but the shadows show the detail so I left it :)
