FCCB #240 - Anything but a Card

This weeks challenge on the Fantabulous Cricut Challeng Blog is...
Anything but a card!!!!

I could not resist making this little home decor project using the Alphalicious Cricut Cartridge!

  1. Cut the patterned paper to fit the mini frames.
  2. Using the alphalicious cricut cartridge cut the letters “J”, “O” and “Y” at 2” in height.
  3. Run them through the xyron sticker maker to make the top of the letter sticky.
  4. Apply the red glitter to the top of the letters.
  5. Stick each letter on one of the cut squares of patterned paper.
  6. Put the pattenered paper with the letter into each of the mini frames.
  7. Glue the  Frames to the Ribbon leaving a loop of ribbon at the top of the frames.
  8. Tie another piece of the ribbon into a bow just on top of the first frame at the bottom of the loop.
  9. Attach a snowflake button to the centre of the “o” on top of the frame 
  10. Add 2 small pearls in read in the centre of the snowflake.
