Cricut Spider Magnets
Belated Happy Halloween, to you all! This year, I didn't come up with a treat bag. I was going to do some crafting for a game for my Kindergartener's Halloween Classroom party but due to time constraint, we could not add the game. Instead, I created a non-candy give away.
I purchased the spider image from Cricut Design Space. Working with the CDS is very easy. Just type in the image you would like to cut and it will show the images available. Editing your image is easy with CDS. I moved the spider's eyes from the bottom part of its head to the top part. This image is a tag. I just cut off the tag part on the spider layer. With the bottom layer, I removed the notch by duplicating this layer, rotating it and welding both layers together to come up with a closed curved edged square.
I use a white cardstock for the back layer. I applied Ranger Multi Matte to the area which will show in front as eyes of the spider. I was going to use glow in the dark embossing powder which I ordered online. My order is still being processed so I used glow in the dark glitter which I bought from Hobby Lobby. I applied the glitter to the glued area and allowed it to dry.
I heat embossed the sentiment using Ranger Holograuphic embossing powder. I applied Ranger Multi Matte to the spider legs and poured Martha Stewart flocking powder to make the spider fuzzy. I wasn't happy on how much powder adhered to the glue. I might have to try other liquid adhesives next time for the flocking powder.
I adhered the back layer to the back of the spider making sure the glitter shows through the holes of the eyes. I applied Ranger Glossy Accents to the eyes and allowed this to dry. It looks really neat after it dried. It looks like black enamel accents. I adhered the magnet to the back of the spider.
I wish I can have a photo of the spider's eyes as it glows in the dark but the glow is not enough to be captured in photo. Sigh!
Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed and brilliant day!
