Christmas Bug Tear Bear Ornament

 
Hi, Everyone! I'm on the Kadoodle Bug Designs blog today.
 
Today, I'm sharing this super cute Christmas Bug Ornament Decoration.
 
This svg is free and EXCLUSIVE to Cricut Lovers Guide to Design Space. I love this group. It is wonderful for getting advice, learning new techniques and connecting with other Cricut users.
 
I love that Kadoodle Bug Designs creates exclusives just for this group.
 
 
I downloaded this file from the files tab inside the group. I then took the svg file and uploaded it into Cricut Design Space and I cut all of the pieces out with my Cricut Explore.
 
I took my Christmas Bug pieces and traced them into the back of thick mulberry paper. I took the pieces that I wanted furry and wet them around the edges using a water brush. I then tore out each piece. Flipped the pieces upside down after they were dry and took a wire brush to their edges.
 
I did the same with the white to my Christmas Bug's Santa Suit.
 
I cut my pieces that I didn't want furry out with scissors.
 
I cut the Santa Suit and hat in Crushed Red Velvet by Doodlebug Design.
 
The cookies were created with texture and smooth cardstock from Recollections.
 
I chalked everything with Colorbox Cats Eye Chalk. I used Charcoal, Chestnut Roan, and Green. Just a touch of pink was added using Peebles chalk. I used black and white pens to add more details.
 
I punched a hole in this Christmas Bugs hat and attached a super cute festive Christmas ribbon.
 
My finishing touch was taking a soft brush to the entire project.
 
 
 
 
I'm honored to share my Christmas Bug with you. I just love how it looks.
 
Thanks so much for your visit.
