owl mini storage cart

Create this fun owl mini storage cart to store reading books.

Step 1

Click here for the design in Cricut® Design Space™.
TIP: Be sure to let the software know you are using the Cricut Joy™. In the upper right corner, click the dropdown box to choose Cricut Joy™.

Step 2

Now, click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner and then click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen.

Step 3

Select your material, place Smart Vinyl™ in the loading area and your machine will pull it in to start your cut. Follow the prompts to cut out your design.

Step 4

Use the weeder tool to peel away the excess material of the design. Only the design itself should be left on the backer paper.

Step 5

Cut a piece of transfer tape a little larger than the designs. Peel away the tape’s backer paper and place the tape, sticky-side down, over your design. Burnish the vinyl so that it’s completely stuck to the tape.

Step 6

Now, gently peel the white backer paper from the cut-out design, which now should be stuck to the transfer tape.

Step 7

Position the bottom of the owl on the outside of the metal tray, then carefully transfer them by burnishing and peeling away the vinyl.
TIP: Use image as your guide when assembling your owl.

Step 8

Position the middle of the owl on the metal tray above the one in Step 7, then carefully transfer them by burnishing and peeling away the vinyl.

Step 9

Measure the inside width and height of the top metal tray, add about 2”-3” [5.1 cm - 7.6 cm] to the height of these measurements.

Step 10

Using your craft knife to cut out the foam board to the exact measurements from Step 9.

Step 11

Place the cut foam board inside the top metal tray and hot glue it to the metal tray. Let dry.

Step 12

Position the top of the owl on the top metal tray and the foam board, then carefully transfer them by burnishing and peeling away the vinyl.

Step 13

Position the owl nose on the owl head in Step 12, then carefully transfer them by burnishing and peeling away the vinyl.

Step 14

Use your craft knife to carefully trim the excess foam board around the owl to outline the head.
