Thursday's Tutorials #4

When you've cut several pieces from your cricut that go together, have you ever wanted to pick up your all your images from the cutting mat just as they have been cut with out shifting the placement of your images?
For example, the image below has 7 individual pieces but each has a specific placement to keep the image looking correct when placed on your project.

  1. Clever and cool. Thanks for sharing!

  2. This was a fantastic tip. I really could have used it during Christmas with some of the intricate snowflakes I was doing. I love it when people figure out new ways to use old things and then SHARE! So cool!

  3. LOVE this idea...going to try it for myself! TFS!!! :)

  4. yes -i have been doing this for months - in fact if you use the kind from the hardware store it's even cheaper than Magic Mesh!

    Great for vinyl! You can use the grid lines to help you line it up!!!
