Given this monumental occasion (for my American readers), I could not resist using my new Cricut Mini to create Obama and Romney paper puppets. Click 'read more' to see the details.
I have to be honest, I got a little lazy with their suits, ties and Mitt's white streaks. I cut those by hand because my Cricut messed up a cut. Instead of cutting again, I just did it myself so I could use up some tiny scraps. I think it looks okay and I especially like Mitt's tie, don't you? :)
This is a free file that Cricut has up right now if you are using the Cricut Craft Room to create cuts. I am reviewing the Cricut Mini later this week so stay tuned for details (and a giveaway!!!).
I am all up in the election this year. I have opinions, people. I feel like a real adult. I was still in school during the last election so I didn't pay the amount of taxes I pay now. And I was apathetic about government in general. But now I am a local government employee. So this time around, things are different for me. It's been interesting learning about the issues that affect me plus the issues that we should all care about. But I will be glad for this election hype to be over. How about you?
