This is a sample of the word art at Bethany’s site (though this image is not her usual fare) and you can download the .png version there. I’m linking it here because this idea is perfect for adapting to Cricut cutting. Just create a simple background in any program you like by repeating the word at a small size and in a variety of fonts, then print it onto the paper or card stock of your choice. Load your custom background sheet on the Cricut mat and then cut the same word out in bold letters. It is ready to go on a scrapbook page, card or other craft.
Numerous variations come to mind. You could list adjectives on the background paper, then cut out a person’s name, for instance. The only design consideration is that the background text be small enough so that it can be read on the the size letters you cut.
For detailed instructions on making the background paper, look at the instructions for making custom wrapping paper in The Color Printer Idea Book. Click “search inside this book,” type in gift wrap, press go and then click on the link to page 45 in the results window.
