Recently at my church, I was given a new assignment on Sundays. I help out with teaching children 3-11 years old. To make our Primary room a little brighter, I was asked to decorate our bulletin board. I didn't take a before picture, but it was gray butcher paper with a bright yellow scalloped boarder. That was it. There weren't any decorations....and gray? That isn't a very happy color for the kids to look at. I decided to get some new paper for the background, make some cupcakes, and make sure that it was decorated in fun colors.

I found a free PNG file of a cupcake, then went to the Cricut Design Space site to plan out my project. One of the great things about Cricut is they have plenty of video tutorials to help you out when you first use their products. After designing my project, I set my Cricut Explore to cut the shapes I needed.
The machine works so quickly! Next I had to remove the card stock paper from the cutting mat.
Since these were going to be birthday cupcakes, I cut candles with my Cricut machine also.
I printed out the names of the children and added them to the candles, then I printed out the months and added them to the bottom of the cupcakes.
I went up to my church building and decorated the bulletin board with blue and lime green butcher paper. I used a circle punch to create a border Then I attached the cupcakes and candles.
I finished decorating the board.
The kids really liked the board when they saw it on Sunday. They loved the colors and liked looking for their candle. It was a fun project to work on and it make the room a bit brighter.
