My son's Cub group raced their "Kub Kars" this week. I wanted to include this post to show you that not only can kids use the Cricut machines, but they can also be used for so many things other than scrapbooking, cards, or paper and home crafts. He's 8 and had no trouble using the Bitty Bugger with the Lil' Bugger to create some neat little embellishments for his Kar. I helped him plan it out on the Bitty Bugger (Gypsy), and he welded the letters and sized it all on his own. A quick cut, some stickles for effect and there you have it. Incidentally, he came 1st in his heat and 3rd in the semi-finals.
"SPEED" was cut with the Cricut® Keystone cartridge at 1/2" and the letters were all welded together to cut one single image. He took a gel pen and outlined the letters to add definition. The flames were cut from the Disney™/Pixar Cars cartridge, both the Spare Parts and Spare Parts blackout features. I believe they were cut at 2".
