Hickory Dickory Dock, the mouse ran up the clock! While you probably don’t usually welcome little critters randomly into your house, I feel like you may make an exception for today’s cuties. Utilize these adorable die cut mice in your next crafty project, and take charm and whimsy to the next level!
We have a little Hickory Dickory Dock book at our house that includes a little mouse finger puppet that pokes its head through each scene: the kids absolutely love it! It’s interactive, it’s got a cute mouse in it, and it’s nice and short (that last perk is mostly for the tired mama who occasionally needs a way to speed up the bedtime routine).
These die cut mice are another project inspired by my kiddos—particularly my son, Davian. He has been OBSESSED with animals of all kinds lately. The other day, he asked me if I could show him what a spinifex hopping mouse looked like (he had learned about them while playing a game that taught about the Australian desert ecosystem). We ended up watching a mini documentary about the cute little critters, and he had a blast.
Even though these mice aren’t exactly of the spinifex hopping variety, I have a feeling that Davian will like them all the same. Especially the pair that are sharing the cheese.
I use Adobe Illustrator for all of my designs, and a Cricut Maker to bring my creations to life. For tips on creating fun paper cuts like this one, see the FAQ section on my website. Also, be sure to check out the other awesome freebies available on my blog!
Enjoy putting these die cut mice to good use! Do you have a project in mind that these critters will fit right into?
