Hello Crafty friends.....
Sherri here from Sherri's Crafty Place I can't believe summer is almost over, the leaves have already started to fall :( I LOVE summer....and this has been a great one....well let's get to it.......
Today I have made a 3D Robot, made from the Robotz Cartridge, I just recieved this in the mail...a free cartridge from Cricut, they had a little promo going on a  bit ago, where if you buy 2 carts at Michaels you could one free, I had a few choices, now this was not my first choice but I think I will have fun with it just the same....
I cut it out using my Gypsy, he is cut at 8. you will need to angle the image on your Gypsy to get it that big or use a 12x24 mat, I made it for a friends son, it was so much fun to make, and not hard at all, I was a little worried at first, but it was really pretty easy.....let me show you....
here he is all done, I used a craft knife to cut his mouth open and stuff some birthday money in it, 
Isn't he cute..... here are all his parts....
 and here is the robot pieces, you definitely want to use a bone folder to get nice tight creases...
 I used this red sticky tape to keep him together, it is for an 8 year old boy....
I inked all of my edges....
                     
here is the robot body and the green piece is the middle of the robot, what you use to stand the robot up, 
 here he is, all done...

I thought he needed a little more, something....so my buddy is turning 8 and I thought I would add his name.....this cartridge also has a GREAT font...I love fonts.....I also decide to give my Robot some goggley eyes...in 2 different sizes....
here is my little buddy with his Robot...he loved it!!!!
and here is the beautiful Niagara Falls, Houseshoe Falls(Canada side) we had his birthday party on top of the Fallsview Casino, at the Indoor Waterpark, yes a waterpark ON TOP of the Casino, I think it is on the 8th floor which is the top floor, I took this photo from up there...what a view, I am so lucky to live so close to this amazing place....I don't live in Niagara Falls, but I am pretty close at only 20 mins away...  
I hope you enjoyed my Project today, I would love to read your comments.....
Thanks for stopping by today and thanks again to the Fabulous Sheila.....
