Love Birds

My guys had given me a 12x24 mat for my Cricut last year and I have not used it. While I was out picking up a new heat gun I also picked up the red and black vinyl to do this project.

The hardest part was getting my Cricut to cut. I had not changed the setting to 12x24 on the Cricut itself and kept getting an error. The inside of my frame measures 13 1/2" x 10 1/2". I used George to make this size of a rectangle and placed my shapes inside it to get the right size. I cut the birds separately and did not weld them to the branch. I just a piece of batting for the background as I don't have paper this size and couldn't find a piece of material I wanted to use.

Thanks for stopping by.
