Easy Cricut Stain Glass Art Project

I am so excited to share with you today a lower elementary or preschool family fun art project made with the Cricut. I call it the stain glass circle. There are so many stain glass activities going on right now, chalk, window art (I will be demonstrating that soon). I thought I would try my hand at stain glass cricut art. My kids loved this when I was making it and could not wait to try it. I have included links to all the files to use in design space.

1. The first step is to select some paper. 
  • white cardstock
  • 4 different colored cardstock. I chose to go with the primary colors and gree.
2. The second step is to make the stain glass cutouts. Here is the file. Cut this file with 3 of the different colored cardstock sheets. 

3. The cutouts can be removed two ways, with this Cricut tool flat, or bending the board and gently separating the cardstock from the board. This helps prevent the paper from bending.
4. The fourth step is to draw the stain glass. Here is the file. I used a Crayola marker because I have no idea where my Cricut markers are...Here is the file for the drawing.

5. Take the circle off the board. The circle needed a little help coming out so I used the scissors to help where it was stuck.
6. The sixth step is to make the objects to put on top. Here are the objects I used, a cat, cupcake, butterfly and flower.
7. The seventh step is to remove the objects from the board.
8. The final step is to play with all the creations. The stain glass cutouts can be glued down or put in place and then put away for play next time. Enjoy!
