Using a laptop/Mac/iPad/iPhone/Android device, log on to your Design Space™ account and make sure you are connected to your Cricut Explore™ / Maker™ machine. Search for and select the ‘Fa La La Wall Art’ project in the Design Space projects. Click ‘customise’.
Delete unwanted layers leaving three deer layers and one ‘Fa La La’ layer. Change the colour of one deer layer so that it will load on to a different cutting mat and can be cut from a different material.
Measure the frame back for the exact measurement required for the backing paper.
Add a square to the canvas using ‘shapes’. Resize the square to 21.5 x 21.5cm. Change the colour of the square to make the overlaying image easier to see.
Resize the deer and text images as required by first highlighting the image and then dragging the corner point. The size appears in a black text box as the image is altered. This project sized the deer image at 16.1(W) x 17.7(H)cm and ‘Fa La La’ to 15.5(W) x 4.6(H)cm.
Use the XL scraper tool to apply the materials to the cutting mat to ensure good contact and no air bubbles. Use the spatula tool to carefully remove the cut images, minimising damage to both the image and the cutting mat.
Cut the images from the required materials: the square from decorative paper, two layers of the deer in white cardstock, one deer layer in white glitter cardstock and ‘Fa La La’ from red vinyl; adjusting the materials setting as appropriate.
Glue the two cardstock deer layers together, exactly aligned, using tacky glue. Glue the deer head centrally to the decorative paper followed by the glitter cardstock on top. Use a hot melt glue gun to attach a red pom pom for the deer’s nose.
Dismantle the wooden frame, carefully removing the back. Position the embellished decorative paper inside and reassemble the frame. Clean the outside glass.
Using the Bright Pad and weeder tools, carefully remove the unwanted vinyl from the cut text image.
Use standard grip transfer tape to position the red vinyl text around the deer image on the glass, following the packaging instructions.
