MMS+S Signage

sign_fail_4x5

I continue to explore what works and what does not on the Cricut Explore Air 2. I’ve not yet moved beyond cardstock. I wanted to make signage for the courtyard set. This is my first attempt at cutting a sign 2.25 inches (5.7 cm) square. Lessons learned.

I scaled up to almost four inches, and it cut beautifully.

Here is the sign, 23 picas square, released from the sticky mat. I glued a nice piece of translucent plastic salvaged from Japanese rice cracker packaging to the back, and cut lengths of 1/4-inch basswood for the top and bottom.

The finished sign. At least for now.

    Very nice! It definitely encapsulates the idea of ‘modern’. I am anxiously waiting for the day when you start producing cardboard furniture kits..

    Now that’s a proper shop!
    Happened to catch the mail and saw Husband has done right — there was a package with your return address so I know I’ll get something I like in my stocking. :)

      Thx, Pepper. Removing the counters from the letterforms is always such a cheerful technique, and a happy byproduct of cutting out :)
      I’m still happy with this machine, and just ordered a scoring stylus for it. Cut *and* score!
