Used the Movable Monsters Digital Cartgridge to created this 4 ft Skeleton. All bones cut at 12" on white posterboard. Edges inked with alcohol markers to add diminision. Used white brads to connect all the bones create Skeleton frame. The "pink inside" of the bones were cut from pink glitter paper and adhered to the back of the bone frame. Used Forever Young to cut purse at 4" , shoes at 6", heart at 2" and Create A Critter for crown at 4" . Used alcohol markers to add dimension and "paint" her nails. Glittery rhinestones, googly eyes and feather boa added and "Angelina" was ready for her debut. TIP: To cut the skeleton bones to a large scale like this, I used the 12X24 cricut mats and my gypsy to lay out all the pieces so I used my available mat space and paper wisely. You could also do this with Cricut Craft Room. I was able to get the "pink inside" of the bones cut out of standard 12X12 glitter paper at 12" by slightly rotating the image on my Gypsy for it to fit properly.

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • white poster board
  • googly eyes
  • glittery cardstock
  • alcohol markers
  • brads
  • scotch quick dry adhesive
  • feather boa
  • various sizes of rhinestones
  • jump rings
  • rhinestone hanging jewels

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Cut all the bones out at desired size. Make sure to also cut out the "inside" of the bones in a contrasting color to the skeleton frame bones.

Note: since the bones fit together to create a large scaled project, take that into consideration when planning over all size of your project and the individual cut sizes for the each piece.
Once all bones are cut out, add dimension to them first with markers or chalk if you prefer.
Layout all the bones so you can tell how they fit properly together. Each bone slightly overlays the other. Adhere the "inside" of the bones behind the skeleton frame bones.

Tip: If using glittery paper, you may need to use a liquid adhesive to ensure it sticks properly.
Using a hole punch, punch holes in the bones where they need to attach. Add the brads. Make sure the prongs are pressed down firmly and you can easily turn the bones.
Make whatever "accessories" you desire for your skeleton, if any, and attach.
