#242 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop DAY 4 Mickey Christmas Frame
Hi everyone welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog HopDAY 4 hosted by Sylvia Bella Scrapbook Designs. If you are here from Sylvia's blog then you are in the right spot! This hop is all about making 12 different Christmas gifts 12 days in a row and the last day we will be posting is on December 6th.
For today's Christmas gift I made a cute Mickey Mouse Christmas frame to give to my sister Patty, she loves Disney as much as I do! I plan on surprising her and giving this frame to her with a picture already printed out of her and her son at Disneyland during Christmas time!
I got this blank frame at Michael's for $1, and got Mickey from the Mickey and Friends Cricut cartridge, the Santa hat is from the Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge. ( Can I just say that I am totally loving my E2, it cuts so much better than my original Expression, with my old Cricut I wouldn't even attempt to make a Disney cut this small because I knew it would tear my paper even after playing around with the settings and blade.)
I added pop dots under Mickey and added red rick-rack ribbon to the top and placed 2 white buttons on top, and made my own chipboard shape using a sticker and 3 layers of cereal box chipboard for the sentiment.
Here's a close up of the clean lines on Mickey using my new E2! I also found the perfect green paint to match the paper.
