Last month I shared my beautiful Advent Calendar with you which is only available as a workshop with purchase. Today’s a freebie!
If you are getting ready to cut out the Advent Calendar Workshop on the Go, this is for you!
If you cut two boxes without Cricut Craft Room, it’s going to look like this and you’re going to be left with 2 scraps that are approximately 2.5 x 8.5.” That’s not much useable paper. You may end up tossing the whole scrap if you don’t have the time to salvage the scraps.
Here’s Cricut Craft Room to the Rescue!
By flipping one of the boxes, you’ll have a beautiful piece of paper with. It’s about 5.5 x 9” long. So it can be either a large scrap of paper or an A2 sized card base! It’s also cut along with your boxes so your scrap is pre-cut! How wonderful is that????
(Edited: Cricut Design Space too!)
How about a swing card? It’s found on the keypad under the letter “S” and fits right between the two boxes. That’s like getting a free card with every sheet you cut for the Advent Calendar!
Wondering what this swing card is all about? See my post here. They make up beautifully and are a lot of fun! I’ve also rotated the boxes so that the repeated cutting doesn’t ruin your mat. You’ll be cutting 15 sheets to make the Advent calendar, this is a great way to keep your mat in good condition.
So that’s my little Cricut Craft Room tutorial for today. The best part is Cricut Craft Room is 100% free. You still have to own the Cricut Cartridge you’re cutting with. (You can purchase Artiste here.).
The Cricut Craft Room file that I’ve described today is free too!
