Step 2: Review the tips and ideas for the workshop.

To create the workshop project as shown here, follow these helpful hints.
  • Create the layout prior to the workshop and determine how you’d like to teach the steps in a workshop setting.
    • When making Cricut® cuts, make sure your machine is set to “material saver” on the left function button panel.
    • Are your guests beginners? Do you want guests to cut all of their papers together, then move on to create all of their accents together, then do all of their preparation steps together, etc.?
    • Are your guests advanced? Do you want guests to work at their own pace, with you giving tips and tricks at the beginning of the workshop?

Step 3: Create the additional layout and bonus project.

To create the additional projects, follow the helpful hints as outlined. Simply by purchasing a few additional items, you and your guests can create all of the art pieces–both layouts and the bonus project!
