Hi Everyone! Once a month, I like to break out my specialty tools and play around with what I can do with them. I have to admit, I have spa on the brain right now. So, for this week’s craft, I created embossed cotton rounds (the kind you use for astringent/toner/makeup, etc.) with Mickey, Goofy and Donald’s faces on them. Since Minnie, Daisy, Clarabelle and Marie have been getting a lot of attention lately, it’s Mickey’s pals turn for us gals.

I used the following (but definitely feel free to do a variation that fits your own theme):

  • Sizzix Big Shot (or any similar die cutting machine will work)
  • Cuttlebug’s Disney A2 Embossing Duo Set-Best Pals # 9922022 Embossing Folder (or Disney Themed A2 Embossing Folder of choice)
  • Rubbing Alcohol (to clean the embossing folder)
  • Cotton Rounds
  • Small Treat Bag
  • Small Piece of Cut Ribbon
  • A Leftover Sticky Mickey Brad


Clean your embossing folder with the rubbing alcohol. Make sure folder is dry. Place one cotton round atop the portion of the folder that you want embossed. Position the embossing folder in the die cutter machine (per manufacturer’s instructions) and crank through. Repeat on individual cotton rounds as many times and as many designs as you like. Place completed cotton rounds in a small treat (or similar) bag and decorate with ribbon or brad for gift giving.

Enjoy your day and let’s spa together!












Craft Time: 15 minutes (or shorter, depending on how many rounds you choose to do)

Fran’s Tips:

~ Please note that this craft requires specialty tools.
