Toy Story B-day Centerpiece

Hi there, I have been pretty busy making all the decorations for my son's birthday party for the past week. With the help of my wonderful husband, we just finished all the cuts for a total of four centerpieces inspired by the beautiful centerpiece made by PaperMaine-iac from the Cricut Community Message Board. All the cuts were made using a Cricut Expression and the Cricut Toy Story and Robotz cartridges.

My dear husband and I agreed that the hardest to put together was Rex (because of the teeth) followed by Mr. Potatohead (those shoes are a pain in the back!). The easiest was Hamm and of course the title.

We used cardstock from a multi-color cardstock pack I bought at Hobby Lobby and for the flesh-tone cuts, I used SU! Blush Blossom cardstock (retired). Tweezers, spatula and ultra-fine scissors came very handy.
Thanks for looking!!
