CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • White cardstock
  • Baby print cardstock
  • Various CS in blues
  • Ribbon
  • Rhinestones
  • Adhesive
  • MS Lattice and lace punches

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

On the Gypsy, size a rectangle 11.75w x 3.75h. Size a round hole at 2.52w x 2.43h. Place and center it 1.25" from top of hanger. Weld the shapes together, then copy and flip another one. Cut them out of white cardstock. These are the base pieces on which you will build the door hanger. Cut 2 more from 2 different nursery print papers. Cut 2 "trim" circles from Elegant Edges. Size these at 3.44w x 3.32h. Cut each one from a color you plan to use for that side.
DECORATE

Decorate each side of the door hanger before adhering them together. It's just easier that way.

"Crawling Baby" Side. Cut the crawling baby from New Arrival at approx. 2.5". Color baby's hair and lightly outline facial features, and cuts for legs, arms and butt cheeks. I used a pale pink Pro Marker. This is what really gives baby personality! Prepare a quilt for the baby, cut from embossed paper. Punch the corners with the lace corner punch. Adhere to hanger. Using the round piece left from cutting the hole, stamp or print a baby sentiment. Glue to the hanger and add a sheer bow to the top, as shown in the picture.
"Baby Sleeping" Side

Prepare the sentiment on your computer using a cute font. I created mine in PhotoShop using a font called Curly Shirley for the words, and KR Baby Love for the cradle. Print it in blue. Cut a mat for the sentiment from a blue that coordinates well. Punch the edge of another blue strip and place below the matted phrase. Add blue rhinestones to the corners.

The teddy bear is cut from Christmas Solutions at 1.94w x 2.25h from brown embossed paper. Layers are cut from cream, and the cuts on his body are outlined in gold gel pen. To frame the bear, use the blue circles left over from the holes. Arrange circles to form a ball, as illustrated in the picture.
FINISHING

Attach the two sides of door hanger to each other using a strong adhesive. Note: avoid using liquid glues as they tend to buckle. Attach baby and the bear using pop dots for dimension.
