Happy Friday! Today is my day to share a project over at Exploring Cricut. One of my best friends had surgery yesterday. I decided to make her a Hospital Survival Kit and a cute little card. Here is is:
Isn't it cute? I picked up a container at Dollorama, and went from there :) I used vinyl to create the "Hospital Survival Kit" on the bucket. I cut out the words with Robotz - I just LOVE that font! I cut it out, and then went to grab some Transfer Tape, to move the words, and to my chagrin, I discovered I didn't have any! I hit Google, and found a solution:
Painter's Tape! (Thanks Pink Circut!) Who knew?? It would not work with big things, but for 1 inch words, it was PERFECT! I couldn't believe how easy it was.
The painter's tape peeled off perfectly and the vinyl stayed exactly where it was - who could ask for more?
Didn't my $1 bucket turn out cute? I kept it super simple, after all, I had no transfer tape ;)
Here is what I included in the basket. A trashy gossip magazine, a puzzle book, some pencils (to do the puzzles) some elastics to hold her hair back, face cloths (cause there is NASTY stuff on the face cloths we throw in the laundry bins at work) hand sanitizer, ear plugs, cream, mouth wash, some lip balm (cause hospitals are so dry) a fancy eye cover thing and some fuzzy socks. I also included a little picture frame with a picture I digitally created of her sons.
Here is the little 4x4 card I made for her. The band aid is from Indie Art and the mat is from Elegant Edges. I embossed the background with Spots and Dots. The sentiment is from MFT and punched out with SU's Word Window punch. The face is from Peachy Keen's Princess Faces. The paper and ribbon is all from Michael's and I doodled around with my Sakura Jelly Roll pen.
I dropped it off to my very groggy girl friend at the hospital today, she loved it. I hope it all comes in handy over the next few weeks, while she is recuperating at the hospital and at home.
Be sure to swing by Exploring Cricut. One of the designers has a Cricut project every day. There is tons of inspiration there!
