Hello fellow KNK obsessed friends! My name is Jen and I’ve been the proud owner of my lovingly referred to “yellow beast” since 2007. However don’t tell her I’m hoping to bring a Zing into the mix around here soon =) I want to thank Sandy for asking me to guest post today!
Have any of you heard of the website pinterest? I am now completely obsessed and can spend hours there. There are so many fun ideas that I know I can use my KNK for. When I came across a frankenstein door I knew I could easily and cheaply create one myself.
I would imagine you have most of these supplies already in your stash. All I had to buy was the green tablecloth and black posterboard.
Black pipe cleaners
I used KNK studio to create the cutting files for the eyes, spider, scar, mouth and teeth. To create the cutting files I used simple shapes, circles and rectangles, that are already built into the software. For the scar all I did was create a large rectangle and then placed equally sized smaller rectangles on top and welded them together. I just freehand cut random “V” shapes out of the posterboard to create the hair.
A couple of googly eyes and pipe cleaners for legs and your spider is all set.
A simple project that really stands out from the street!
Even though the shapes are quite basic, you can download the actual cutting files (to get the relative dimensions I used)from here:
I’d love for you to check out my blog where I love to use my KNK. I hope to post again about the ways I use my KNK with my cake decorating.
Thanks for letting me share and Happy Halloween!
