Challenge 1 for the Canadian Swarm

Hi Everyone!!
Today I would like to share the Halloween Lanterns I made with the help of my Cricut Expression 2 , Cricut Craft Room and my Gypsy. I did the design on Cricut Craft Room  but converted the file to Gypsy to cut as we are yet unable to link our " linked to Gypsy carts" to Cricut Craft Room. This worked fairly well for me!! I did this project for the first challenge for the Canadian Swarm on the Circle message boards.

The  challenge is to make a Halloween Decor Item. It can be a sign, banner, luminary, treat bag, etc. The sky is the limit.
Your project must include the following:
1) At least one Cricut Cut
2) The colour purple
Your project must include one of the following:
1) Glitter
2) Ribbon
3) Use of a cuttlebug folder. 

I made 9 cubic shaped lanterns and attached them to a mini lights set I had for Halloween. The lights are little skulls. I used glitter, ink and  flocking to dress up my Cricut cuts. Washi tape was used to frame the silhouette inserts. This was a enjoyable project to do!
Sorry for the picture quality, I will try to take more pictures in daylight tomorrow. Have a great night!!


  1. I love love love your laterns. The glitter and your paper choices are perfect.
