STEP ONE:


Start by laying a sheet of basswood onto the strong grip, lining it up with the top left corner.

make sure that you have left your basswood out of the packaging for 24 hours before this, to dry out completely before you use it.


Carefully tape down all four sides of the basswood.


STEP TWO:


Open up the project in Cricut Design Space and head to make it, choose basswood as the material that you would like to use.


Load the knife blade into your machine and move the star wheels over to the right side, if it's your first time moving the white star wheel they can be tough to move-but will go eventually!



STEP THREE:


Load your mat into the machine and start the cut, make sure to check after 11-13 passes by pausing the machine, and stopping the cut if it is complete.


Repeat this process until all of the parts are cut.


STEP FOUR:


Load the adhesive vinyl onto the mat and into the machine and change the blade back to the fine point to cut the star shapes.


assemble the trees and glue into place with a glue gun, then stick the adhesive stars onto finish!
