Toni Roberts created these art pieces and they just might be my favorite. Who knew you could cut wood veneer sheets with the Cricut and they’re so easy to make. Visit Toni's website for more great ideas at DesignDazzle.com

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • Birch Veneer Paper 12 x 12
  • Water Based Polyurethane
  • Walnut Veneer Paper 12 x 12
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Water Based Wood Stain
  • Birch Wood

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Choose the images for your project. The Cricut Craft room has an amazing assortment of choices for artwork. Cut the image and size needed on the wood veneer paper.
The football image was cut using Walnut veneer. The Walnut wood veneer is already the dark color (no staining needed).
The basketball image was cut and then stained using an orange colored water based stain. Wipe the stain on the wood veneer paper with a rag and wipe-off excess. Apply two coats. Let dry between coats. Since the wood veneer paper is a paper product it will curl up somewhat after applying liquids.
Lightly sand the “wood frame” with sand paper. Work in the same direction as the grain or you’ll get scratches. Remove any dust.
Spray adhesive on the back of the wood veneer paper cut outs. Place the wood veneer cutouts on the wood. Place a heavy object on top to help “set” the pieces in place. Let dry. Brush on clear satin polyurethane with a foam brush cover the entire board including the veneer cut outs. Let dry.
Hang your artwork and wait for the oohs and aahs!
