Start here for simple crafts I’ve shared that you can create in no time.
I have been cutting and crafting with paper for a long time, it was my first craft love! I’ve never tried a large scale layered paper project quite like this, National craft month seemed like a good time to give it a shot.
I started with a Cricut project found in Design Space. Using a premade design took the guesswork out of the project and allowed me to enjoy the process.
The Cricut does all the cutting, you just have to weed and layer. I found this process to be so satisfying, watching the wreath build with each layer.
Here is what you need for this project. All the supplies can be found at Joann, including the Cricut!
Pick up a slatted wood round like the one I used, or scale the project up or down to create something perfect for your space.

- Paint - multiple colors
- Colored cardstock

- Open the It's a Beautiful Day project in Cricut Design Space.
- Size this to fit your wood board.
- Choose a cardstock color for each layer.
- Click Make it to begin cutting the layers.
- While the layers are cutting, paint the board and let it dry.
- Weed each paper layer and sort by color.
- Layered the paper without adhesive to make sure you have all the pieces and you like the layout.
- Starting with the base layer, adhere the paper to the wood sign using either mounting squares or a tape roller.
- Repeat this process until you have layered all of the paper pieces.
Use this technique to create art for any season. This also works for handmade cards and smaller craft projects.
