Garage door - part 5

by brae  

Continuing work on the garage door. I worked on the window panels for the garage door about a month ago. The main panels are part of the original design, but I needed to design and cut the windows and the interior trim. I used my Cricut Explore One to make the initial cuts but had to finalize the cuts by hand.

I used scissors to cut around the outside and an X-Acto to cut out the interior.

The rounded rectangle I designed didn't match up exactly to the insert, but it was easier to trim than to try to make an exact match.

From the front, the window insert looks clean.

The trim covers any gaps.

Next up, finishing the paint on the panels and painting the trims.

The Cricut makes such clean, precise cuts. I am curios as to the material that you are using. I just purchased the Maker and so far hav only cut craft paper; my knife blade arrives today and I will try cutting 1/16 wood. Using these machines brings our craft to a whole new level. I always learn from you. Thank you.

Thank you!! :>>

I actually have since bought a Maker to replace this machine since the Explore didn't do everything I wanted. This material is very thin polystyrene sheet, and the Maker did a better job of cutting through.
