Today I experimented with a new scrapbooking tool, the Cricut, a portable electronic cutting machine.
This cartridge-based system cuts letters, shapes and phrases in a variety of sizes and styles. It is easy to use: attach paper to the self-adhesive cutting mat, load it into the machine, and press a button. Voila! Within seconds, your shape is electronically cut out.
|I actually cut three different shapes on this piece of paper.|
Then, using a thin metal spatula, you simply lift your shape from the mat.
|Three of my favorite things.|
Now I know what I am going to ask Santa to bring me for Christmas.
