  height 4" Tea Pot

  machine - Explore Air

To make the tea pot as a shaped card is easy. Made screen shots of the steps.


In Cricut Design Space after selecting Images, Image Sets, type in Eat Play Love in search box.




After the images for Eat Play Love are displayed, scroll thru, click on the Tea Pot & click on Insert Images.



After Tea Pot is in Design Space, click on Select All, change height to 4".




Click on Ungroup. There are 2 layers. Move the top cut out layer to right so you will have room to make shaped card with bottom layer. Move bottom layer down so you have room to create a duplicate.

Duplicate the bottom layer, move up, flip horizontally.

Move the duplicated flipped portion down, select both pieces and select weld. You will now have a shaped Tea Pot & the top layer.

Select All, Attach and Make.
