I've always wanted to make larger shapes than what you can cut on a 12 x 12". So I tried the 12 x 24" to cut this ice cream shape for my daughters birthday. Hope you enjoy this tutorial and get new ideas of what you can use the big mat for!
Large cardstock in assorted colors
12 x 24" mat
Glue or glue sticks
STACKED ICE CREAM CONE Design (ID #132485)
Once I opened the ice cream shape, I assembled it and colored it in the cardstock colors I had.
Resizing it to fit the length of the long mat.
I then made an offset of 0.6 cm around the shape, which will be the background shape I use to glue all the different parts on.
I removed the ice cream and cut my offset design in cream cardstock.
I then cut the different scoops, cone and cherry, using leftover scraps I had in the colors I needed.
I then attached each shape using glue dots.
My daughter loved it and so did the guests!
