WOYWW - 11 July

It's that day again, when we visit each others' workdesks, as co-ordinated from Julia Dunnit's blog - you can get the details here.  Well, on my workdesk (annexe) today is - Cammie the Cameo!

You can just make out that she's cutting a circle out of a cardboard box that some drinks came in (I won't tell you what kind, but it's Probably the Best Cardboard in the World;)!) and it didn't bother her in the slightest.  For those who are interested, after some experimentation, I found blade depth 7, speed 2, and pressure 33 did the job;  I gave it a double cut to be sure I was through the coating on the printed side.  I'm working on V3 of Lady E's Hatbox (you can just see V2 in the background - V1 went in the bin after all the salvageable bits were, well, salvaged).  While I was at it I cut the circles for the inner and outer covers.  I am going to write step-by-step instructions so I can remember how I made it; want a set?

Don't have a cameo but would love one, great that it can cut through one of 'those' boxes too. Happy WOYWW, Anne x #54

Wow that it cuts cardboard. I don't have a Cameo either. Your hat box projects sound interesting!
