Movable Monsters: Mummy

So I decided to challenge myself and try another one of the Movable Monsters from the Cricut Craft Room carts.  Let me tell you, they are quite tricky without any direction or pics to go from!  Once I started playing with this new monster, I decided that some of the cuts have multiple layers to hide the joints (not what I did with the skeleton).  I am not sure that I am assembling these right.  I am using my best judgement and what "looks" right to me.  ;)

This monster is postured sideways.  Since he is sideways, I added one leg to the front and one to the back.

I decided that if he was sideways, you would not be able to see both legs fully.   I changed the positioning of the legs so that the legs were on top of each other.  Later, I changed the legs once more and moved the hanging piece leg to the back and movde the other leg to the front..

This is how I assembled my joints.  I first  added the bottom layers...

Then used pop dots to add the top layers, fully covering the joints.   Notice how I didn't glue/tape the actual joints in order to keep them mobile.
Another view of how I added the top layers to cover the joints.

 I also pop dotted the layers that didn't cover the joints for dimension as well as inking the edges in Ranger Iced Spruce distress ink.

For texture and a slight aging effect, I added Ranger distress crackle paint in Clear Rock Candy to some of the pieces.

So this is my take on the mummy.  It will be interesting to see how far off I am when Provo Craft actually adds a visual and some directions.  I hope my creations are too laughable!  =)


  1. He looks great! I have been looking at all the pieces and am in awe that you figured it 1out

  2. This is fantatsic. Love how you covered the joints. The inking/shadows on the whit look wonderful

  3. Another great mover. You're making me want to play so bad, but I can't find the time. Love the stuff you're doing.

  4. Oh my goodness! He is so neat!

  5. He'll look great on a project Renee, the inking & dimension look great!

  6. Very cool, Renee! Looks like a lot of work, but the end result is fabulous :)

  7. Wow, I think you got it right! Looks pretty intense with all those pieces! He's fabulous!


Thank you for leaving some love! I hope to see you back!
