Cricut Cheerleader "recipe"

I noticed that a few people have landed on my blog while searching for Cricut Cheerleader. There are soooo many cute options on the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge that I'm surprised they didn't include a cheerleader. This is not my original "recipe". My friend Angela found it for me when I was searching. I did make a few changes, though. I'd be happy to give the original author credit & a link if anyone recognizes the work.

For the Body, I went with 4" and left it on for the clothes and accessories.


Shirt - blackout prom boy. I tried this but didn't like the long sleeve look, so I cut the sleeves off. Probably a waste of paper just to have the neckline showing. I'm sure there is a better way.

Socks - Rag Doll trimmed down

Shoes - Rag Doll

Skirt - original recipe called for blackout Dancer, cut two. Use different colors and cut small triangles in the top layer to allow bottom layer to show. HOWEVER, I used the jumper on Dancer accessories 1. I used the full cutout (white) on the underneath layer and then cut the second black one into a V on the top, trimmed the bottom to look like pleats and then layered it over the white.

Pompoms - The original recipe mentioned that you could use Superboy Accessories 2 or blackout on Outfit 2 (lion's mane) from the Paper Doll Cartridge. I used Accent 32s from the Accent Essentials Cartridge. Not sure what sizes I used, I just played with it until I got it right.

Hair - I used the Headwear from the Indian Girl but you can use whatever headwear you like. The ponytail is Dancer Headwear.
