When the Cricut is mentioned, most people think of fancy titles, cool images or elaborate creations. While this is all true, I also like the consistency that a Cricut provides.
During Bear Week at preschool, the kids were allowed to bring their animals to school with a name tag. Because my boys are close in age, I made some for each of my kids and their favorite animal. I took a picture of each boy with their animal and printed them out as 2x3" (wallet) size.
I figured out the size I needed (5") then used the 'George and Basic Shapes' cartridge and cut out 8 rectangles.
I fussy cut a window in 4 of the rectangles for the picture to show through. (Sorry I don't have a picture of this step but little boys were hovering.) Then I glued the pieces together and taped the edges so it wouldn't come apart. I added their names and the names of their animal and punched a hole for the string.
In the morning, I put the name tags on their animals.
I made sure to get a picture of everyone...
...and we went to school. Here they are with the teacher.
I'm happy to say everyone had a very good day.
