Year Milestone Blanket & Chipboard Frame using the Cricut Maker

I'm starting this off saying that, no, this is NOT an announcement of any sort! I already have my 5 little monkeys!
It was very hard not to get a little baby hungry with all the sweet little babies that were born last year though! I've been begging my siblings to give me a sweet new little niece or nephew, but since they've told me no, I'm just going to have to spoil my sister best friend's little baby.
She just had a darling little girl in December, so I had to make her a cute Milestone Blanket!
(and also maybe some sweet bows to go with too!)

This blanket is very easy to make, so you can make your own! 
You will need 2 yards Cotton Gauze. 
Cut it into a 44" by 44" square. 
Fold each edge up by 1/4", fold by another 1/4" and pin in place. 
Sew around all 4 edges, backstitching at the beginning and end.
Or if you aren't into sewing, just buy a gauze blanket!

Load Strong Bond Everyday Iron-on in Black onto a 12" by 24" mat and cut using the Cricut Maker.
Weed your project using a Cricut Weeder.

Space numbers on one side of the blanket and using the Cricut Easy Press (6" by 7"), press each number on.

 Remove film and repeat with the arrows and "months".

Now to make the the Chipboard Frame!
To make this you will need:

1 - Place chipboard on heavy duty mat (purple). Use tape to secure the sides of the chipboard.
2 - Cut board using Knife Blade.
3 - Remove frame
4 - Place Everyday Vinyl onto regular mat. Replace Knife Blade with Premium Fine Point Blade.
5 - Cut frame vinyl
6 - Place Everyday vinyl onto frame.

And you're done!

The Sailor Bows by Sweet Red Poppy are also made on the Cricut using the Rotary Blade.

And there you have a sweet little Milestone Blanket!
