Yourself the Elf!

The Cricut Design Team has a totally adorable print then cut project in the Make It Now section of Design Space! It's called Yourself the Elf and you can make "anyone" an elf by uploading their photo, sizing the head to fit the elf suit then printing from Design Space and letting the Explore do the cutting. One slight problem, the file does not contain the holes needed to assemble the Elf using brads. Not a big deal if you are making only one or two, but if you want to make your entire family into dancing elves or maybe your child's entire class, you don't want to hand punch all those holes. I added them to the file so your Explore can cut them for you!

 If you want my file with the holes added, just be a follower of my blog and leave a comment on this post with your email address and I'll send you the file. Remember, even though you can open the file, you will still need to purchase the MIN project {if it's not still included in the subscription or if you don't have the subscription but it's only 99 cents} to be able to cut it!

Cricut has now updated the project and added the holes to the files! Click this link for the updated file: Yourself the Elf with added holes for easy assembly

Olaf + Warm Hugs + K Cup box!

Here's another version of the 2 K Cup box that I designed in Design Space {and am sharing the box file for Free in my facebook group Cricut Lovers Guide To Design Space }. For this box, I cut then folded all the score lines and then embossed the box using my Cuttlebug and snowflakes folder. I used the circles that cut out of the box for the K Cups and backed them with a slightly larger white circle fro the tops of the K cups. Then I used two Olaf images from the Frozen cart and the print then cut feature of the Explore. The phrase "warm hugs" is also from  the Frozen cart.
