Use the Cricut Explore and the associated internet based Design Space software to create some fun decorations for Halloween. This project makes a tantalising sign measuring 9 inch x 18 inch. It is made up of six layers to give strength and rigidity. Alternatively, it could be cut from thick grey board and painted; the deep cut blade and housing unit would be required for the Explore.

Top tip! Use the scraper tool to apply the resource to the mat; ensures good adhesion and no air bubbles. Remove the images from the mat using the spatula; prevents damage to the image and mat.
Cut the images out from card and vinyl, loading them on to the cutting mat and adjusting the Smart Dial accordingly.
Top tip! Ink the edges of the white layers first using a grey ink to give dimension.
Glue all the black skeleton layers together then the white layers on top.
Top tip! Ink the edges of the ‘WICKED’ letters using green ink to give dimension.
Glue the grey wording layers together. Using the transfer tape, apply the vinyl wording over the top. Layer the green ‘WICKED’ images on to the wording piece.
