Keychain, Push Pins, Magnets

My tips and tricks for January and February at the CX store.  I fell in love with the Groovy Times cartridge this month.

Push pins, magnets, and key chains are easy to create with the Cricut. Use the Cricut to cut the base for each item out of chipboard and layer other Cricut images on top.

To create the push pins, press a plain undecorated pin through the chipboard before decorating it.

Add an eyelet to the keychain after decorating is complete.

When finished decorating, cover the item with a clear acrylic glaze and let it dry.

For best drying results for the push pins press them onto a piece of cardboard before applying the glaze.

Drying will take several hours…be patient.
