Disney Alice in Wonderland Project and Challenge


Today's project comes from the Cricut Disney Classics cartridge.  How about these Alice in Wonderland images?  The Disney images are time consuming to layer but so worth the effort!

I had to make a centerpiece for a tea party my daughter is having in her 6th grade English class.  While they are not reading Alice in Wonderland, the characters in the book they are reading keep talking about it.  So, we thought this would make a cute centerpiece.

Since it has to survive a day at junior high, I didn't embellish it up too much.  Of course, starting the project at 8 pm also had something to do with that...

Everyday Cricut - Disney White Rabbit and Chesire Cat

All the images were cut at 5-1/2", all layers (9 of them!).  I used the Cricut Imagine machine to speed up the process and boy, did it help!  Between the color picker that let me find a nice skin tone color and the ease of getting everything laid out,  the Imagine saved me lots of time and effort.  I just plugged in my layers, colored them and let the machine lay out all the images.  It did take 8 mats worth of paper but keep in mind, each page was not completely full.

Everyday Cricut - Disney Mad Hatte White Rabbit

To make the centerpiece, all I did was take a sheet of 12" x 24" paper and score it every 5 inches.  That gave me a piece to overlap and form the square shape.  I used decorative scissors (insert wide eyes) for the top edge and then even out the bottom using the trimmer so it was nice and even.  This design allowed for the centerpiece to be folded flat for easy transport to school in a 12" x 12" plastic envelope.  Did I mention we brought 30 cupcakes also?  Lots to carry.

Everyday Cricut Disney Alice in Wonderland

And now a word about the cuts themselves.

Everyday Cricut Disney Alice in Wonderland
 Alice, Alice, Alice.  She would really prefer to be cut even larger then the 5-1/2" I chose since her eyes and mouth are no bigger than a gnat's toe nail at this size.  As gnats don't have toe nails, you get the picture of how small those pieces are.  Also, the whites of her eyes are quite tiny.  I used blue pen to make the blue eyes.

Everyday Cricut Disney Chesire Cat
As a contract, the Chesire Cat wasn't too difficult - the top light pink by his ears was the only difficult section.
Everyday Cricut Disney White Rabbit
Coffee cup gave me fits but the rest was easy on the White Rabbit.
Everyday Cricut Disney Mad Hatter scrapbooking
Finally, the Mad Hatter was probably the easiest of them all!

A tip for using the Imagine to print and cut:  Walmart now has 12" X 12" pads of Colorbok textured white cardstock (40 sheets for $5) and it prints and cuts beautifully!  The colors are rich and the texture adds so much.

We're starting a new thing here at Everyday Cricut: Once a week, we'll have a challenge of some kind and a link for you to share projects you've made.  Don't worry - we won't make them hard!  It's just a way to see all your fun, fantastic creations!  (And we won't own the images...).

So, for our first week's challenge, we're starting with Disney!

We'd love to see some Disney projects you guys have made!  Any kind is good - cards, layouts, home decor, T-shirts, brag books, whatever.  Please link up your photos with your site name below in Mr. Linky!  We can't wait to see all the beautiful things you guys have made!

Click the link at the bottom of this post to enter! Please type your name/screen name in the caption/title section and then choose the photo and link you wish to use. Please link directly to the post with your card, instead of just your general blog.

If you have any trouble, try entering the link first, then upload your photo from your computer instead of "from web".

This is the 1st time I've REALLY liked a paper project using the Imagine. The colors are nice and bright!

Trell said...

Interestingly enough, I want an Imagine JUST for Disney projects! I would use it for other things, but I really want the ability to put in the RGB codes.

Love the characters. Great project!

Kelsey said...

These images are so great!

Yvette said...

I am so impressed with the detail in this centerpiece! I can only imagine how long it took (no pun intended). Looks fantastic!

momof2redheads said...

Very very cute, but boy looks like so much work!

WOW on all of those amazing Alice in Wonderland images, the Imagine did a wonderful job... my jaw is STILL on the floor!!! BRAVO!!!

kellmg said...

Love all the disney projects!! So much creativity!!
It has been too long since I have looked/shopped for new Cricut cartridges!! Love all the Disney!!

Dana said...

Love the color! Did you use the imagine to print first or was this all cut and pieced together. Just lovely.

Kathy said...

Love this! I agree that the Disney cartridges are alot of work, but so worth it! It also helps to cut images at least 4 inches (the bigger the easier to layer). Thanks!

Janelle said...

The centerpiece is wonderful! The tip about using the imagine to color all the layers for each image on the Disney carts is great. Having cut out a Disney image with 9 different layers on 9 different colors of cardstock I know the Imagine will make those images a lot more fun. Thanks so much for the great tip with the Imagine machine and the Disney cartridges.
