Hello Kitty Projects

I have been playing with my Hello Kitty Cricut cartridge for my design team and my weekly make-n-take.  I first made this car out of the Echo Park Happy Days for my design team at Cutter Creek. See below
I cut out the Hello Kitty imagine using black cardstock at 5”, repeated using the blackout feature in both black cardstock and Retro patterned paper. I then cut the inside of the car and wheels using Bottle Caps patterned paper . Hello Kitty, her bow, steering wheel, inside of the wheels is cut with cardstock. I used a rhinestone for the headlight and stickles on her bow and the lines on the pink patterned paper (Bottle Caps). 
I wanted my car to be 3D so I could add a gift before I gave it to my niece. To do that, I cut a piece of black cardstock at 9x4 – scored using my Scor Buddy at an ½” on each side and scored at 2” and 7” as seen in this picture. I then cut notches to make it easier to fold. 
I folded the box and glued with Scotch Quick Dry in place as you see here. 
I glued the black of the car on lining the black cardstock up just above the wheels. Then I glued on the front panel.
Hello Kitty’s car needed a license plate so I used the tab HELLO and the black letters KITTY from the Alpha Stickers that come in the Happy Days collection then added a bow for to finish it off. 
I then made this one for my weekly make-n-take at Hearts-n-Crafts

Hope you liked my Hello Kitty project and bring you a Happy Day.
