Well, not everything can come out right the first time...or the second for that matter! In sticking with my Disney theme I've got going this week, I thought I'd give Cinderella's Fairy Godmother a shot.
My first attempt was cut at a mere 4"...entirely too small for a character with a pencil thin wand as an accessory :/ Here's her stage by stage progress:
After the first cut at 4" failed miserably, I figured if I enlarged her by a whole 2 1/2 inches it'd be a cinch...boy was I mistaken! When trying to cut her eyes & wand, even at 6 1/2 inches, all it created was a bunch of white DUST. I now know that when it comes to characters like this, it's best to use them in a 12x12 layout so you can cut them at full scale. LESSON LEARNED!
Here is the size comparison of the 4" to the 6 1/2"
