Cricuting School Projects

I love how easy it is to create super school projects using my Expression 2.  DD2 stated she needs a box diorama for steamboats, or is a steam engine.....  I knew I could do both. 

Carts used:
My World -- steamboat and steamboat shadow @ 10 inches
My World -- steam engine and steam engine shadow @ 10 inches
Everyday Paper Dolls -- waves @ 3 inches (real dial)
Blackletter -- S and P 2.75 inches e, a, m, o, w, e, r @ 2.5 inches

White, blue and black are Provo craft 12" x 24"
Patterned paper is from my stash

I used the cricut markers to draw the steamboat and engine then used the shadow feature to make the actual cuts.  I used pieces from the box flaps to create bracing so the pieces will stand.  I used a pieces of the box to make the bridge for the steam engine.  We printed facts about steam engines and steamboats then attached them to box sides.

Needless to say the teacher was impressed!
