Dino Hunter

Hi all! Just wanted to share a non-card, non-quilled project that my husband and I did for our grandson Ephram.  He is a DINO FREAK and can tell you EVERYTHING you ever wanted to know (or not) about dinosaurs!  He literally eats, sleeps and lives everything DINO!  So my DH got the idea to re-do his bike in a dino theme after seeing my Dinosaur Tracks Cricut cartridge. 

After taking the heat gun and scraping off all of the decals on his bike, we used yellow Cricut vinyl to make new ones.  One of his favorites (and he does have them ranked), is the Spinosaurus, so I cut out a spino silhouette for the "shield" on the front.  It is made from a piece of plastic 'cardboard' or is it call foamcore?, cutout in a fossil rock shape and spray pained brown.  Then I cut out "DINO HUNTER" with the font on the cartridge and used only the negative letter shapes. 

Next came his name and a spino charm with dino tracks.  The vinyl cut great and with the help of the transfer paper it was easy to put them on them bike.  He says his bike rides faster now.  He can't wait to show it off to the park ranger at Dinosaur Valley State Park (his favorite place) when we go back there this spring.  I see more requests for bike customization coming soon.  


Just a reminder that there will be 2 blog hops on Friday,the 17th.  The first will be for the Lime Light Charitable Design Team at 8:00 p.m. CST and then at 11:30 p.m. the Embellish Me With Quilling blog hop!  Two projects posts in one day, an action card and another quilled jewelry set!  Until then,
