Mr. Scary Doughnut Man

My sister and I were at Walmart the other day, I needed some doughnuts. She picked up the box with the little white ones and said, "Wouldn't this be cute if you made this into a skeleton with the doughnuts as his ribs?". I was like of course, I can cut it with my Cricut. Well, easier said than done. I don't have any of the Cricut software cutting programs, so I just had to wing it.

I used the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge to cut out the skeleton. I gave him a thoracotomy and removed his ribs. I didn't have a the layering option on the skeleton, so I just traced the skeleton and cut him out free hand. The two layers are attached with pop up dots. The hardest part was the face, I did it like 10 times, and I'm still not completely satisfied. I was trying to channel Donna at Popsicle Toes to see what she would do, but I couldn't come up with any good ideas. I am going to keep trying.

Paper: Recollections
Misc: Cricut, Paper Dolls Dress Up Cart, rhinestones, pop up dots, black sharpie pen, ribbon, donuts, sticky strip

I am almost done with the Scarecrow tutorial. I just have a few finishing touches to put on it.
