How to Make This Project

  1. Decide how large you'd like your project to be and size your file in Design Space or the software of your machine.
  2. Add your chipboard to your mat, masking tape it down, and be sure to move all your stars from your roller bar to the right side.
  3. Load in your mat, set your material, and let your machine cut. Remember that you cant use your Cricut Knife Blade with your iPad, only your desktop or laptop!
  4. Once cut unload your mat and carefully peel your chipboard pieces off of the mat.
  5. If you would like, before you paint the pieces you can spray them with a coat of polyurethane and allow it to dry before adding paint. Sometimes this makes it easier to paint and requires fewer coats.
  6. Once you've painted all the pieces and allowed them all to dry.
  7. If you want to add another coat of polyurethane before you add the keychains you're welcome to do so!
  8. Once they're all dry add the chains and hooks and you're good to go!
