CLOSED: Redemption and Cricut Mini Giveaway!

Remember my failed attempt at replicating this LOVE shirt for my little girl?


Well, today is redemption time!

100% better, right???

The difference between my hand-cut ELOV freezer paper stencil and my fabulous new shirt is my new Cricut Mini. I honestly don't know why I didn't get one sooner. Using an electronic cutting machine made creating this LOVE shirt so easy and super quick. My original two hour process was cut down to 30 minutes for the entire project (including dry time).


I laid out the design on a Cricut Craft Room story board and ran the freezer paper through the cutter. The result was one large, perfectly cut stencil. The Cricut Mini did all the work, all I did was peel the stencil off the cutting mat, iron on the stencil and paint!

Want to know the best part of this story? One lucky How-To Gal reader is going to win one of these babies:

That's right, your own Cricut Mini. EEEK! So exciting! 

Five Different Ways to Enter:
  1. Be a How-To Gal follower.

  3. Tweet about this giveaway.
  4. Facebook about this giveaway.
  5. "Like" Cricut on Facebook (and tell them The How-To Gal sent you!)

(Let me know in separate comments about tweets, FB, or blog links).
Giveaway will close Monday, October 15th at midnight.
Good luck!

  20. @MrsMoussa, the original tutorial post can be found HERE The paint I used was Tulip Fabric Paint and you can find freezer paper in the same aisle of your grocery store as plastic wrap and tinfoil. Hope that helps!
