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!
