Trim the Tree

Hi Krafters!

For the last two years or so, my daughters and I make ornaments for the Christmas tree. It allows us to spend time together and it keeps them busy for a while. This year, I wanted to try my hand at cutting felt with the Gazelle! Let me tell you, I was not disappointed!

When I saw the Moose File, I HAD to use it for this year’s ornament! The file has several layers to it, but I only used two of the layers.  To cut the felt, I used a small amount of Stiffy stabilizer (the more you use, the stiffer the felt will become). Once the felt was dry, I cut it out on my Gazelle using a deep cut blade, force of 6 and a multi-cut of 3. It cut with no problem at all using these settings. I only had brown and white felt so I colored the face with a glimmer spray. I also used googly eyes…so cute! The nose of the Moose was cut with the left over felt when I cut the antlers.

The ornament is light, but I used an eyelet to give the ribbon a little more support. Since the googly eyes have lashes, I made the Moose a girl by adding a bow.  That’s it!

I hope you all enjoyed today’s project! Check out for files and inspiration! Remember, you can cut these files in MTC, Silhouette Studio Deluxe Edition and SCAL! Thanks for stopping by, Krafthead~
