Being that my son is computer savvy (ok, he is but really his penmanship stinks!) we often use my Cricut to title and embellish his projects! I let him run the letters through the Zyron and he adheres them himself..obviously because often they are crooked! LOL So, as you can expect, his projects always looks spiffy in their own 9 year old boy way! (Let's not even mention how just using a 12" straight cutter can make a world of difference compared to scissors!)
The disadvantage to this bonding is that I often get the raised eyebrow, stink eye, and question as to if he "really" did the project. You know the feeling, don't you? Alas, so many of my friends are not crafters and don't realize with just a few tools (and an open wallet!) you, too, can make your 9 year old appear to be a good cutter!
To make a long story short, he is really happy with how his projects came out and asked me if I would post them on my blog. :) Here they are:
This project filled the gift component of the requirement, as we gave it to his best buddy, who is pictured. We just cut the picture to a 4 x 4, mounted it and it was done! Paper is SU (thanks Gale, the green is from the pack you sent me!).
This is a picture of his pack. He had fun with the corner punch! He opted to keep this one and it is up in his room. All supplies SU.
Thanks for looking! I will post one of my projects this weekend. :)
