Starting an Animal Farm

First off let me apologize for getting this online so late.  We've had several minor emergencies and this is state testing week for my 5th grade students. After 2 nights of taking care of a sick dog until 2 in the morning I fell asleep grading papers.

 So ... on to my project.  I just love Animal Antics and Folk Art Festival.  I cut these critters at 6 inches.  All of the papers are from my stash.  I reworked my scrap stash (I'll post on my blog this weekend) .  I think the pictures speak for themselves.  I plan to make enough animals for my 25 6th graders to chose an animal so they can write a testing goal and a reward they would like to earn for reaching that goal.

This a showcase of the animals I have cut do far.

Fishing bear from Animal Antics.
Swan from Folk Art Festival. This was cut at 5 1/2"

Rhino from Animal Antics.

Beaver from Animal Antics.


  1. The swan cut is so pretty. Thanks for posting some cuts from these carts. I sometimes need to see what others have done as I just don't see it with the handbook.

  2. That's a great idea! I think the children will really enjoy these! They look adorable!

  3. Thanks for sharing these....I've glanced at the booklet, but haven't really dug into it yet to see what can be done with them....Now I'll have to look a little closer, they are sooo cute.

  4. Cute! I love seeing the animals cut in real life.

  5. I agree with everyone - so cute.. I love the cuts.

  6. Cute, cute, cute! I just retired from teaching, and I don't miss those testing days! Know your kids will love the handmade animals created for them! I loved using the Cricut in my classroom, too!
