Go behind the scenes to see how I made an awesome Christmas Float with Sweet, Free SVG cuts and amazing designs

Hello crafty friends!
Hope your weekend is going great. Today I am sharing a quick post featuring some work I did for a recent parade float. I used my cricut to create the cuts that I used on these almost life size gingerbread house faces.  Take a look.

Here's a look at one of the sides. These houses were cut from a piece of 4ft x 8 ft sign board. I didn't cut anything from the 8 ft length so they are 8 feet in length. As you may not clearly see, I did a panel for each side. Yep that's right...TWO eight foot panels. They are mirror images of each other. So I made two of each of the three types of houses.

Here's a look at one of the panels not on the trailer. This didn't have any of the "glitter" I added to some of the pieces yet.

Here's a closer look. At the bottom you can see I created letters to look like iced cookies. The "Merry Christmas" is a sign I picked up from Hobby Lobby.

Sadly, here is the only picture of the one house I created for the front. It is a 4ft by 4ft size. You can see all the fun decoration for this one slightly.

Here's a picture a co-worker snapped during the parade. We had a "snow machine" and so here in Florida, that was a lot of fun!

I can't tell you the hours and hours it took to create these. I started by designing ALL of the images myself. That's right. All of the svg files I created myself. From there I went to using my Cricut Maker to cut all of the pieces. Some were larger than the 11.5 x 11.5 cut size so I had to use the "slice" method to cut them into sections. It was a lot of of work but it was fun to do. We have TWO more parades next weekend and then I am home free! I plan to share some of the svg files once I have the opportunity to get it all sorted after the parades, so stay tuned.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your crafty time with me. Until the next time, have a wonderfully crafty day!
