Avonlea Dress Form

Today I have a great project to show you! Using the new CTMH Artiste Cricut Cartridge I cut out this dress form in Chip board. Below you can see the my Cricut machine loaded with chipboard-note** you need the deep cut blade to cut chipboard.


I also cut out the same size dress form in the great Avonlea patten paper. I wanted to darken the stand, so I removed it from the pattern paper piece and then used a Chocolate ink page to color the bottom of the chipboard.

After I finished decorating the whole thing it was a bit heavy, so I used a bamboo skewer and hot glue to stabilize the back!

You really caught my eye with one. I think it's the pretty paper with the burlap on the bottom. I love the look.
Excellent work!

This is SOOOOO cute! I am in love. I was just looking at this form and this paper last night. Never thought to do this. Might have to give it a try.

LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!
what thickness is your chipboard and did you have to do repeat cuts or just the one pass with the deep cut blade?
Thanks Aaron!

I have no clue what the thickness is, It was the backing chipboard to the CTMH desk pad.
1 pass with the deep cut blade with no problems.
