Oval Winter Scene

Share This Page

I saw this project on Artsonia a couple of years ago and thought it was beautiful. Made up it’s even more beautiful. With the Cricut and the program, Sure Cuts A Lot (Lot 2), we made the templates for this project. We laminated 12″ x 18″ construction paper and cut out a centered 8 ½” x 11 ½” oval. Keep both the solid center piece and the oval-cut-out outer frame. Make one set of templates per student.


Sure Cuts A Lot 2, or the newest version 3, is not compatible with the newer Cricut machines. So if you want to use the Sure Cuts A Lot 1 or 2, or the version 3, which is the newest version, you will need a cutting machine which will use the SCAL software. Please check my home page for more info.
