Helping with Homework

I just love my Cricut!  If I only used it for helping my kids with their homework / school projects it would be soooo worth it!  I've used mine for Science fair boards, church dance decor, puppets for a school project, story boards, and more. 

My 1st grader was sent home a 9 1/2" cut out of a doll and, he ask to decorate it to look like himself.  So we got out the Cricut and started cutting out some clothes!  We used Everyday Paper Dolls and cut the clothes out at 9 1/2".  But before we put them on the doll we did some embossing, of course.  It always adds just a bit of dimension and character to ANYTHING!  We used Distressed Stipes on the pants and Tiny Mosiac for the shirt!

I call my little man Tan Tan the Superman so his little 'doll' had to have a cape.  We cut that out at 8" from the Superman Cricut Cartridge and put a letter T on the back from Hoot 'n Holler cartridge at 4".  FYI, his favorite color is RED!

My son stamped the face using a 1997 Stampin Up face stamp set, colored the face, added googlie eyes and we used a white pen to do some highlighting. 
Here's just one of the many ways that we have done 'Homework with the Cricut'.
