The first of the Cricut Christmas home decor projects is completed.
This is “Have yourself a Yeti little Christmas” and the big guy is getting ready to hang a shining star on the highest bough.
All of the cuts on this project are from Campin’ Critters except for Plantin Schoolbook in the title.
Using Big Foot (at 3″), I hand trimmed his down his big boots and added some hand cut and rolled fur. The most challenging aspect was his mouth and facial hair. I hand cut a pink polka dot from a piece of card stock, folded and trimmed to make a mouth, and added his gorgeous teeth with a Uni-Ball Signo Pen. The facial hair was hand cut and then fringed and rolled to attach.
Rudolph has an added red nose and is checking his map because as lead reindeer, he is the team navigator.
