Easy Cricut Explore Canvas

I absolutely LOVE my Cricut Explore cutting machine.  I bought it in May, even though I already had purchased the Cricut Expression 2 in December.  Not sorry about it even a little bit.  The Explore rocks!  I use it all. the. time.

Here’s an easy canvas I made using the Cricut Explore and some Dollar Store gift wrap.

The free Cricut Design Space program that’s cloud-based is easy to design projects.  So, making a mixed media canvas like this was very easy.    I covered the canvas with aqua blue chevron gift wrap from Dollar Tree, using lots of Mod Podge.  I cut the letters and arrows on the Cricut, and adhered them with Mod Podge, followed by a final sealing coat of the podge.

It’s a big canvas (18 x 24″) that now greets me every day in my bathroom.  I wanted artwork that would survive the humidity of a bathroom, so I figured a ModPodge-covered canvas would do the trick.

Not sure if this will work, but here’s the link to the Design Space file I used to create the canvas: https://us.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/project/20640174  I think if you click on that, it should take you to Design Space and the project (only works for Explore).
