Thursday Tutorial, Cricut markers for E2.

Happy Thursday fellow Cricuteers!

Liz here to share an " emergency" pen/marker replacement for your E2s.
Did you know that the SMASH TM  pens (sticks with a pen on one end and a glue stick on the other) have the exact same perimeter as the Cricut markers!  I just realized that and could not wait to share with you guys! 

All you need to do in order to make sure your  pen works properly is  mark at 1 1/2" from the top of your SMASH TM stick's cap - on the pen end of course :)- and use that line as reference when using your SMASH TM   stick on your Cricut E2 machine:

Place your SMASH TM pen as if you were using your Cricut markers, using the mark you made as reference, to position it at the correct height.

The "cutting" settings are:

Here is the result you will get. Not bad for a Crafty emergency, right? 

The added bonus is that you get a fine line that shows the intricate designs better than the medium size tip of the markers.

I hope you find this tip helpful.
