Baby Carriage Upgrade

After looking at the carriage, I decided it was not complete.
Using the Cricut cartridge "Straight From The Nest" set  at 1 1/2 inches, I cut six of the following,

(Second key from the left on the bottom row)
 Cut where indicated with the black marks to end up
 with six of these. 

Layer and  glue three together which will give
you one for each side of the carriage.
After inking the edges, glue in position, one on each side.
Cut the ends off a round toothpick to desired length,
 then hot glue in place.
I chalked these heavier than the other features on the
carriage as I wanted them to stand out more.
Hope you like my completed project!!

Mini Baskets and Baby Buggy

Just completed ten of these mini baskets as favor holders for
my ladies group at our monthly luncheon next week.
Inspiration came from a post I saw on Pinterest. Go to and enter
thelittleblueroom , select choice for make-take-monday, to view
directions and great step by step pictures.
I make half a second basket to create this baby carriage.
 I used a one inch circle and gold brad to attach the
hood to the carriage base. For each wheel,
layer three 1 3/4 inch circles, score across to give appearance
of spokes, then attached with brads. 

Thanks for stopping by.
