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..
Thanks, BW! On the list of ideas to develop is a modern plant stand system… Will that suffice?
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. :)
I do hope you enjoy making the kit, Christina. Act surprised :)
The sign looks great. I love the style and font.
Still uming and aring whether to join the diecut gang..:0)
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!
Thanx, Sheila! Now I also have a container of little cutout letters I can use as confetti!
