Recently I was crafting with six of our young grandchildren, ages two through 10, and wanted an easy project for them to make quickly. I had made some musical roses from the Twirled Flower Rose file in the Pazzles Craft Room recently and needed to make more. After I made one, the children each wanted to make their own. I quickly printed some sheet music on both sides of regular printer paper, resized the Twirled flower file in the InVue software to 8” wide to fill the 8.5”x11” paper, and the children were dazzled as they watched the Vue cutter make swirls around the printed paper on the mat.
I showed them how to start wrapping the outside end of the cut strip around a pencil, and keep wrapping until all of the paper was wrapped. We put some clear drying glue on the last inside bit of paper, set it on the table and let it unwrap until we liked the size.
