Earlier this week, I shared how I made a Last Minute DIY Costume Mask for one of my little guys. After the mask, the only thing that he needed to complete his costume was a shield. By combining different circle sizes with different papers, I made him one in no time! I used my Cricut Explore Air for this project, but if you do not have a Cricut, then you could make the shield without once since the project only requires circles and a star.

Supplies:

 

If you are using a Cricut, you can grab my cut file and canvas HERE. You may also design your own using shapes in the Cricut Design Space.

Cut the circles and star out using Cricut Design Space. I cut mine using a combination of regular card stock and pearl paper.

Trace the largest circle on cardboard. Cut the cardboard with the exacto knife. Lay the cardboard on the self-healing mat to keep from damaging the cutting surface.

Glue the circles together, with the star in the center, and glue the entire piece onto the cardboard.

Flip the piece over to see the back. Glue the “handle” in the center.
