Cricut

Personalized Phone Stand

So for Christmas I am getting my mom a phone stand, but I am using my Cricut to personalize it! (Don’t worry, even though I am writing it now, I will post it after she gets her present.) Well, actually I am going to print this out & send it along with the gift and then post it. 🙂

So I thought about things that my mom likes, sewing, roses, music, friends, to name a few. Then I looked at images and found a few I liked and played around with them. I ended up choosing a rose.

Then I weeded the extra vinyl away, used some Cricut transfer tape, and then was able to easily place it smoothly on the stand.

Next I decided to add an image tho the bottom of the stand. (That way even when a phone is on the stand you can still see some design.)

This I am very proud of because it is my first own original design works. It was a learning process and a few hiccups along the way, but it did indeed turn out as the vision in my head! Now she will always be able trip look at the stand and, phone on or off, see a reminder of my love.

I love you mom!

First I got my pattern from Craftables. After downloading them I uploaded them to Cricut Design Space. I loaded cardstock and hit go.

After just a few minutes these were cut out.
