Step One:

Start by creating a sugar skull on Cricut Design Space. I uploaded my own design, then added shapes to the skull and welding them to create a cuttable image.

I cut out six skulls using black card, But cut out as many as you would like, to create a great garland.

    Love this Emma! I have recently got a (second hand, from eBay!) die-cutter, but not really used it yet. Am thinking I have plenty of time to plan and prepare one for Christmas!! Well maybe not plenty of time!!!! 🙂

    Thanks for the ideas! 🙂
