Cricut Snowflake Ornament Jingle Jangle Blog Hop

This 3D snowflake was made using the Winter Lace Seasonal Cricut cartridge and acrylic sheets.

I put the thin acrylic sheet directly onto a fairly sticky Cricut mat.  Using the deep cut blade, I cut the acrylic at speed 5, pressure 5, blade 6 and multi cut 4.  The snowflake is cut at 4-3/4″.

Even though I used the max settings and multi-cut 4, I still couldn’t get the Cricut to cut the acrylic all the way through.  It did do a beautiful job scoring it though!  I cut the 2 pieces apart because I had decided to cut the flakes out by hand if necessary.

My hand is stained pink from some Copic markers I used earlier.  LOL!

I was able to snip a few places in the acrylic and then tear it away from the edges.  This method would not work for the insides, but I think they look pretty scored too.

I LOVE my Tim Holtz Scissors! Those scissors can cut tough things like this acrylic and then snip ribbon nicely right afterward.  That speaks volumes about this product.

It’s beginning to look a lot like ornament…everywhere I go.

I used that Bic Mark-It marker to color in some of those “embossed” parts of the snowflake.  I hadn’t tried those markers on acrylic before, but they work beautifully!

I used a hole punch to make some holes in the ornament so I could hang it up.  TA DA!!  All done.  One thing I will say…it’s very difficult to take a picture of clear acrylic.  LOL!

  11. Great idea! I love how inspiring you are even in these last few days before Christmas. I have so much to do (as we all do at this time of year) but your blog makes me want to make some time to be crafty! Thanks!

    Beautiful, Joy! I wouldn’t have thought to use this material in the cricut! I wonder if it would cut all the way through with a thinner ml–maybe like the acetate used on an overhaed projector. hmmmm.

  13. Love your ornament! So pretty!

  14. Beautiful. I save all packaging that is clear and cut it with my cricut. Running acrylic through my cuddlebug makes it appear frosty too. Love this snowflake

  15. How fun is this? I was just checking in to see what was new with you Joy and to my surprise there’s a blog hop today!!!!!

    The snowflake is FABULOUS!!! I MUST find this acetate.

  16. Ragsnpaint says:

    Pretty pretty snowflake. I like the way you used the bic marker. I honestly thought those holes were punched out!

  17. This is soooo pretty!! I love the marker on it!

  18. This is a very beautiful ornament. I have cut the acrylic scrapbook sheets from A. C. Moore with just my regular blade and it did a beautiful job. Think I need to try these. Thanks for sharing and the chance to win. I am a follower. patnbobcuddy at gmail dot com

    I like the way this snowflake looks. What a great way to improvise by coloring in the “embossed” areas! I wonder if you could somehow add some glitter, would it stick to the acrylic? I’m going to have to try this idea!

  20. Loved the snowflake. I’m going to try it and add some stickles also.

  21. It turned out really cute. I must admit, however, I’m glad you used the project even though it didn’t work like it was supposed to. It’s nice to see ways to adjust things when they don’t quite work out.

  22. Very cute snowflake, it’s definitely a project to try. Thanks for sharing.

  23. jksmitley says:

    Sweet, never would have thought that i could do acrylic in the cricut. I did a similar ornament at Archiver’s with a premade snowflake. Then ran it through the texture boutique to emboss it, then used white acrylic paint dabbed over top. Very cute as well!

  24. JOY – This ornament is just beautiful. I love how the coloring just showcased the dimension.

  25. I love your snowflake!
    Thanks for a chance at your great giveaway!

  30. Now I have to get this cart. Your snowflake ornament would be perfect for one of my trees, it’s decorated in blue and white with mostly snowflake themed ornaments on it. I’ve never seen that embossing folder before. I can imagine so many ideas for it.
