As we draw closer and closer to Valentine’s Day, the good folks at Cricut are creating more and more options with ways for us to celebrate “Love Day”.
Take for example, this set of adorable Punny Valentines–not one, not two, but more than a dozen options for playful Valentines in several sizes and designs.
With this many options, the possibilities are practically endless!
In today’s Cricut Access Challenge, I’ve manipulated the original files in several ways so that I could turn them into simple greetings suitable for a child’s Valentine’s Day exchange.
How did I do this?
First, I isolated the design and then I flattened the image.
Flattening is a useful tool to have in your repertoire and it’s so easy to accomplish, too! All you have to do is select your image and choose Flatten in the lower right corner of your canvas. Your image will be magically transformed into a printable.
Once an image is flattened, it can be printed on any computer and then expertly cut out by your Cricut. This technique is called Print Then Cut and it produces some seriously adorable things–as you can see!
So basically, within minutes you will have a dozen unique, super cute and professional looking 3″ x 4″ cards that your child can sign and give out!
In my book that is WAY better than those teeny tiny, flimsy things that pass for Valentines these days!
And everyone will be asking how you did it, too!
But don’t worry–you don’t have to tell them. It can be our little secret!
Want to make this project? It’s really easy!
