It’s day one of the 12 Crafts of Christmas Challenge and today, I’m showing you how to make this Balsa Christmas ornaments in Cricut Design Space.
Here we are, already December 1st, can you believe it? This month will be a busy month because starting today and until Christmas, I will offer you one video every 2 days.
Why every 2 days? Well, to let you breathe a bit (and honestly so I can breathe too!) in this last sprint before Christmas.
For this 12 crafts of Christmas challenge, I will show you how to make original projects and even include free SVG files for you to download.
There will even be some special projects using the perforation blade and the wavy blade. I can’t wait to show you.
Balsa Christmas Ornaments
Today, we start by cutting balsa wood with the knife blade to make this cute ornament. There will be no SVG files today because you’ll be designing it from A to Z in Cricut Design Space.
If you don’t have the knife blade, don’t worry, I’ll also show you how to make this project with cardstocks.
