3 Free Toothless SVG Cut Files

This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Toothless is by far one of my favorite kid's movie characters! We have 5 girls in total and the 4 of them who are old enough to enjoy the movie (the last is only about 4 months) are obsessed with Toothless (and so is mom if I'm being honest)

We can't wait for the new movie to come here in a few months, so in anticipation of a new How to Train Your Dragon flare up across the internet and in our home, here are a few files I converted to an SVG to use with your Cricut

I would love to see your projects once they're done! Please feel free to post your comments below or on my Facebook page. Happy crafting!

How to Create a Frosted Glass Block

I had such a wonderful time creating this for my new nephew and was extremely pleased with the results. Now, of course, I want to frost every piece of glass I can get my hands on. For Christmas, my husband actually bought me some new frosting colors that I can't wait to use.

I created this project almost 100% from images that come with my Cricut Access Membership Plan. I have included a screen shot of what images and the font that I used in this project below. The only item I added was the Chicago Bears logo which I searched for on Google then used SVG Creator to convert to a usable file in Design Space.

Here are the supplies I purchased to create it:

This comes in a ton of different colors as well:
 Ice, Sea FoamAqua, and a whole bunch more.

The first thing I did was use the square to make sure that my design was going to fit on the block and would be easy to resize when I was done. Personally, I like to work on it as a larger image and then size it down when I'm done. 

Next, I used just your standard circle and used the duplicate button in the upper right hand corner so that I could be sure that they'd all be the exact same size. Then I just centered then vertically to finish creating my frame.

Once my basic framing was done, I started filling in my nephew's birth information and then sized the MVP and football to fill up the dead space and complete the design. 

Once everything was cut, I used Cricut's transfer tape to apply it to the glass. I know that a lot of people out there talk about getting off brands they find at places like Walmart, but I like the fact that's it's clear and you can really see where you're putting your design. I find that a lot of the contact paper people suggest to save a couple of bucks is really hard to see through since it's not clear. 

After the vinyl was on the block that's when I applied the glass frosting. DO NOT DO THIS BEFORE APPLYING THE VINYL. Since it's more or less a spray paint, the adhesive on the vinyl or the transfer tape will peel it off if you try to frost the glass first (I learned that the hard way and these blocks are a little on the pricey side compared to other projects, but the results are stunning). 

Finally, I just made sure the string of lights was stretched out very well before putting them into the block so that they would give a nice even glow throughout.
