100% Cricut, 3D Crib using George and basic shapes





This is the end result, making the crib using the layout previously added to this blog. Two were cut, placing the card pattern side down on one of the cuts to have the same pattern/colour all the way around.

The crib is held together with quickie glue and double sided tape.

There are four rectangles, these are used as stays for the mattress to lay upon, they were not creased down the middle but slightly off centre to ensure they held the mattress firmly in place. The mattress itself is made once the crib resembles one so the area required measuring, then using GBS was cut accordingly.

The mobile stem requires double sided sticky tape added, then wire fixed to the inside length of the stem, to allow flexible hanging of the mobile so not to droop!! There are 2 flowers, double thread was used to attach the fabric teddies. The flower itself was fixed to the stem using a brad, which allows for the mobile to turn slightly. Now to fix the stem of the mobile to the crib, 2 x velcro dots were used, one at the top of the crib edge and one at the bottom. All that was left was to add that personal touch and embellish! Thanks for looking.
