Cricut Tool Bench: A Craft Tool Holder & Organizer Made on the Cricut Explore or Maker!!


– Hello everybody, my
name is Jennifer Maker. Today we are making Cricut Tool Benches on The Great Maker Show and Tell. (cheerful guitar music) When I first began sharing my
craft projects with everybody just over about two years ago, I made this very sweet and
simple craft tool organizer. It is nothing more than
a cute little basket with some paper towel tubes
that I cut to various lengths. It literally took me five minutes, and it stayed right by
my side all this time, holding and organizing all of my tools, and markers, and scissors, and everything. Well these days I have more craft tools, especially tools for my cutting machines. I have scoring tools,
scrapers, weeding tools, Cricut pens, and many more. And with the Cricut Maker, I now have many different blades and
tool housings as well. I was using so many of them that they weren’t even fitting
in the front compartment, the built-in storage
compartment on my Cricut. That’s when I knew that it was time to make a new craft tool organizer. So I present my Cricut Tool
Bench with lots of room for all of my Cricut tools and blades and plenty of room to grow. There are spots in the
front for all of the blades and tool housings with
two spots in the back, a wee bit larger to fit
the new scoring tools, and there are even two
small spots in the front for the scoring heads, ’cause
you don’t wanna lose those, right, they’re very small. Along the sides I’ve got
spots for the Cricut scrapers and the paper edge distressors,
and nice strong tubes in the middle to hold all of my long tools like the my weeding
tool, my cooling tools, spatulas, my TrueControl
Knife, my Cricut markers, and my fabric marking pens. And these tubes that you see here, they are nothing more than leftover tubes that you get when you use
up a roll a Cricut vinyl. Right, so this vinyl, just like this. And this is, usually
we just recycle these, and this is a great way to reuse them. They’re strong and
sturdy, and if you don’t have one of these tubes, paper towel tubes fit in there as well. In fact, these tubes are the secret to the stability of my Cricut Tool Bench. You see, I wanted to make a tool organizer that could be made by those who had either a Cricut
Maker or a Cricut Explore, as many of the other tool
organizers that I’ve seen are only for those with the Maker. So by using these nice strong tubes to help support our tool bench, we could make this an
either cutting machine. The base material that you see, that you use will be a
little bit different. So on the Maker we’re
using heavy chipboard, two millimeters thick. And on the Explore
we’re using craft board, three layers of it. And you could use a thinner chipboard on your Explore as well, but
it can get a little tricky and may require the Deep Cut Blade. But for the craft board,
the Deep Cut Blade is not needed, just a Fine-Point Blade that comes with your machine,
so nice and easy, right? And in addition to your base material you’ll need some hot glue to assemble it, and decorating it is up to you. You can leave it plain like this, nice and sweet and simple, or you can add an outer
layer for a little pizzazz. The pink one is made out of my Explore and it has an outer layer of
the pink foil craft board. And I’ve made this blue one on my Maker and it has an outer layer
of iron-on glitter vinyl to dress it up. And now I’ll show you how
to do both in this video. The full materials list
and where to get everything is linked below this video. And the free pattern for my tool bench is on my blog at JenniferMaker.com. So let’s head on over there now so I can show you where to find it, and then we will get underway. All right, so the first thing that you wanna do is
get a tool bench pattern over on my blog, at JenniferMaker.com. And if you don’t have the
password for that yet, you can always get it at
the bottom of my posts. You subscribe to my
newsletter, which is free, and the perk is that you get access to my free library of
SVG files and patterns. And once you’re in
there you can just click on enter the free resource library, type in your password, click enter, and you will get the entire list of all of my free stuff. Look for the Cricut Craft Tool Bench SVG and click on it and it will download. And once it’s downloaded
you want to open it, okay? And inside that file, which is a ZIP file, but if you need any help
with decompressing it I have a whole tutorial on that. You wanna look for the SVG file. Now let’s cut out the materials. So head on over to Cricut Design Space. Click on new project
and then click on upload over on the left. Click upload image, click browse, and then go find that SVG file that you just downloaded,
and it’ll say SVG on the end, select it, click open, and
the file will be there, and go ahead and click save. So we wanna go ahead and click this and click on insert images
to put it onto our canvas. And here it is. Let’s make this a little smaller so we can see the full thing. Now it’s really ready to go. If you were to click make
it right now, however, it will attempt to put the pieces onto like five mats, really inefficient. So instead I want you
to ungroup everything and then select just the yellow layer and click attach, and the
blue layers and click attach. Now if you click make it,
it’s all into just two mats, nice and easy, right? Now, so that you understand,
the yellow is your structure, so your craft board or your chipboard. The blue is the covering. So if you choose to do
the foil craft board, to cover it the way I did my pink one, you’ll cut that foil
out of the blue layer. And if you choose to do
iron-on glitter vinyl, like I did for my blue one, you’ll cut that from the
blue layer as well, right? So the covering is the blue layer and the base layer is the yellow layer. All right, so let me show you
cutting it on the Explore. So I’m gonna choose my Explore, and we’re gonna go over and
click on our base layer, which is the yellow one again. Click browse all materials,
and we’re going to cut it from craft board, which is an option that shows up right there. Change your pressure to more, and you just use a
regular Fine-Point Blade for craft board on the Explore. But, if you would have any issues getting it to cut all the way through as I did the first time I did it, this is what you do. You go ahead and cancel out your cut, and you’re gonna click on the three lines up in the icon in the upper left corner, and click manage custom materials. Choose your Explore,
and you’re going to look for the craft board setting. So I just searched for
craft, and it shows up. Click on edit, change your
settings to match mine. So pressure 315, cut three
times, and save that. Now try cutting it again. This worked really well for me, for both the regular craft
board and the foil craft board. Now if you choose to
cut this on your Maker, you’re probably gonna want
to use heavy chipboard, which is what I used. So you just search for heavy chipboard. It’ll come right up and you select that. Now note that it says that you need to have your star wheels
all the way to the right and use your knife blade. So we’ll be doing that. So when you cut out chipboard you have to tape it to your mat, just as I’ve done here. And make sure that those star wheels, right now they’re all the
way over on the right side, but they need to be pushed over, otherwise they’ll leave indents
in your chipboard, right? And then the knife blade is installed. Once everything is good to go you can go ahead and start cutting it. It took about 45 minutes for me to cut this pattern from chipboard. It’s just this one layer was 45 minutes. And really, it’s the kind of thing you wanna keep an eye on because sometimes it does
finish a little earlier and you can usually tell by pausing it and then lifting up a corner to see if it’s cut all the way through. If you decide to do that
Cricut iron-on vinyl, make sure that you
remember that iron-on vinyl is always cut with the shiny side down, so face down, right? So when you put it on your mat you wanna put it a shiny side face down just as I’m doing here. And always be sure to
mirror your iron-on vinyl so that it, because you were
cutting it reverse, right? So you gotta mirror it. So you flip it over and you
mirror it when you cut it. So here we go, here is my vinyl that I had put shiny
side face down on my mat and I had mirrored it, and I
had put my Fine-Point Blade back into my Maker to cut it out. Now the first part of assembling is really to get your tubes cut to the right length. So just go find some
Cricut vinyl that you have and you’ll look inside and you’ll see that has these awesome tubes. It’s okay to take your
vinyl off your tube, even if you haven’t used it yet. (laughs) I did that. If you don’t have Cricut
vinyl, don’t use it, you could use a paper towel tube. It won’t be as strong,
just keep that in mind, but it’s about the same size. So what I suggest that you do for this is to cut one length at four inches, two lengths at 3.5, and
two at three inches. So to do this, you want
to mark them with a pen. This is the way I found that worked best. So mark four inches in and draw a line all the way around the
circumference of the tube at the point that you want to mark. Once it’s marked, take a
Cricut TrueControl Knife, or an X-ACTO Knife, or a utility knife, or whatever you have, and cut it. And if you roll it away
from yourself like this it’s a lot easier to get
a straight clean line. And you just wanna do this
for all five of your tubes. So remember it’s four inches, one four inch, two 3.5,
and two three inches. And of course you can use different sizes if you prefer. I found that those are
the sizes that worked and looked the best. Now I needed two tubes
to get the five tubes that I needed for this. I did experiment with trying to find a way to use one tube to get all five tubes, but I couldn’t quite do it because you really need your tube to stand above, to be
taller than your tool bench for it to work properly
and give the support that you need. If you find a way to do it, please share. All right, so here’s all five. Now you can decorate them with paint, or you could just use some Washi Tape to put around the top. All right, so step four is actually assembling your tool bench. We’re gonna do the craft board version that you can do on the Explore first. So here is the foil craft board that I cut out on my Cricut. Remember when you take
things off your mat, flip the mat over and pull the mat away from your material, so that it doesn’t wanna curve or curl on you. And you only need to cut out the top layer of your craft board with this craft foil, if you choose to use it
all, you don’t have to. You don’t wanna cut the
other layers from the craft from the foil board because
it’ll be harder to glue ’cause it’s foil, right? So the other two layers can be just plain regular craft board which is what I used. And you’ll wanna take out all the centers until you have pieces that look like this. Those skinny little pieces,
you’re gonna wanna keep those. Now pay attention to the sides here. They will go on and attach to
the rest of your tool bench in a very particular
way, which I will explain in a little bit. But for now, orient them the
way that I have done here. And here are the other layers that I cut from the craft board, and we are going to layer them together. So two layers of regular craft board, one layer of foil craft board. Make sure everything matches up. And I’m gonna use spray adhesive,
permanent spray adhesive, to attach these layers together. The best way to do that
is to spray the top layer with the foil and one of the other layers, and then you can attach
all three together easily without having spray adhesive anywhere that you don’t want it. Remember to spray using a spray box, which I’ve explained in earlier videos. All right, so here is
the top of my tool bench and we’re gonna do the same thing for all the other layers. So the reason that I’m using
three layers of craft board, in case it’s not really obvious, is that it’s going to give
us the strength that we need. I did not feel that just
one layer of craft board was gonna hold up for very long, even with the support tubes. Once I started putting
tools in there it would sag, and that told me that it
was just not strong enough. So we’re gonna use three,
and make sure that it is. All right, so now we have
all of our pieces layered, and now it’s time to start attaching the parts of our tool bench. You wanna put the sides on
just as I’m showing here. And it’s important because
it won’t really fit together the same way. And then we’re going to
center each of the sides onto the top, just as I’m doing here. So I’m putting a line of hot glue, and then it goes right on
there, right in the center, and you will notice it is shorter, and then, just set the two sides. So center it along that side. It’s shorter so that we can
fit all the pieces together and have them look right. So that’s what that side looks like. And we’re gonna do the same thing, a bead of hot glue along the side, and then center the leg. Just make sure you’re putting, that the, basically the
little finger hold points to the corner that you
want it to be attaching to. So that, you’ll see that
there’s a corner in that and then it points to the right way. I did that hoping that it
would help you remember which way to do it. And then we’re gonna do the front, and we put glue along the two sides, right along the bottom there
and then up the next side, and set that in there. Make sure everything is lining up and press and hold the
hot glue while it sets. If we do it right, everything will fit just the way that it ought to, see? So now, and everything is fitting in here. Now these little bits here
are to cover up the edges if you want. (laughs) You certainly don’t have to do that. I thought it might make
it look really polished if I did that. And use glue for this, not spray adhesive, it’s not really strong enough. Use glue instead. It just goes right along the edge of your layers of craft board, to cover them up and make it look a little cooler, I suppose. And just follow exactly
the way I’m doing it here. So your top layer has
edging all around it, and the front and the
back panels have edging, but the side panels have no edging because they’re actually
completely covered by the top and the sides. And I did that on purpose
to provide better support, because the weight of the tools then would be pressing down on the support, the side supports, and we’d
be less likely to break, or bend, or fold, or whatever. (chuckles) You could even do these
in contrasting colors, that might look kind of cool, huh? All right, so you don’t
want to do the back panel, however, yet, you will
eventually do the back panel. For now, leave the back panel off because the next step
is to insert our tubes and we wanna have nice
and easy access to that. So let’s put our tubes in. Now I’ve decorated these tubes by simply putting some
Washi Tape at the top, and you just slide them in from the top until they reach the bottom. And then you turn it over,
you wanna hold it in place just in case it’s a little wobbly. And you just need to put enough hot glue so that it will stay in
position and provide support between the top of your tool bench and the tubes themselves. It’ll be difficult to get
it all around the tube and that’s okay, just
get as much as you can. Always make sure as the glue is setting, always turn it over and make sure that it didn’t move out of position because you’ll have a little wiggle room before it sets completely. You wanna make sure the
sides of your tool bench are always touching the ground. But the tubes are also touching the ground because they are important
for the support of this. And you’ll see that one is a
little bit off right there, but I’m gonna wiggle it
and put it into position before it sets, see? There we go, so everything is in position. And if you want, you can go back and you can put a little extra glue on. And then you wanna hot glue
the back of your tool bench back panel on as well. And we do it the same
way we did the front, so we put hot glue along the sides, the bottom of the top layer and press and hold into position. All right, so those circles
that you pulled out, you’re actually gonna wanna use them because if you put them on
the bottom of your tubes that means that you can pick
up your Cricut Tool Bench without worrying about
anything falling out, see? So you just hot glue them in the bottom. I did it so that we
could see the pretty side when we look down into the tube, but you can do whatever you’d like. All right, well now we can
start putting tools in it because that’s it, it’s all assembled. I’ve put my long tools in the tubes, and I put my scrapers in the slots, and then I put all of my little tool, my blade housings in the various circles. Now keep in mind that
the two slots in the back for the blade housings are a little bigger and they’re, so that you could fit the Cricut scoring tools in there because the tip is a little larger. But they’ll also fit
all of the Cricut tools, all of these blades. So if you don’t even have the scoring tool it’s no issues, you can still use it. And there we go. We have an awesome Cricut Tool Bench made on the Explore. All right so if you making
yours from chipboard on the Maker, here’s how to assemble that. So here is my chipboard
that I cut on my Maker, and it didn’t quite cut
all the way through. I took it off a little bit too early because I was impatient. So, but it’s no big deal. I just used my knife
to trim the little bits that didn’t wanna come off on their own. All right, so there’s all of our pieces, and here is my iron-on vinyl. Now we’re gonna wanna
remove all of the parts that we’re not going to be using. So I just pulled it off. Weed your vinyl, get everything
you’re not gonna use off. And then you cut it into parts so that you have each individual piece on a separate carrier sheet. And you wanna be sure to weed all of the little bits out of the top level, the top layer, little
circles, and then such. All right so there we go. Now we have all of our pieces. Now it’s time to iron
it onto our chipboard. I’m gonna use my EasyPress. You could also use an iron. You could also use a craft
iron, a smaller one as well. Whatever you have is
gonna be fine, really. So for my EasyPress, I’m gonna set it to 330 degrees for about 20 to 30 seconds. Now to do this, I
recommend that you pre-heat your chipboard for just 10, 15 seconds, and then place your vinyl on top of it. Make sure it’s really well-positioned. You’re not gonna have a
lot of the carrier sheet to stick down onto it,
so I used parchment paper to sort of keep it in position. And then when you’ve
done that, flip it over and do it again, hit it again, the other side, for like 10 seconds. And the Cricut glitter iron-on vinyl is a warm peel, so once
it’s cooled off enough for you to handle it, you can go ahead and lift off the carrier sheet, and it sticks, isn’t that cool? Now to do the sides,
I use this tiny little craft iron I have, you
can use whatever you have, though your EasyPress is just gonna be too big to handle something this delicate. So you’re gonna want something smaller. You could do this, if you
decide to do the little sides. I got this little craft
iron in the quilting section at my local craft store. It’s actually pretty
awesome, I really like it. So you just hold that edging in place and you iron it down. All right so here’s our top piece. Make sure you’re doing it so that the glitter lines up. I do have it set to be
pretty much the same, but you know, just in case, just make sure it lines up. So preheat it initially, and then put your glitter on top. Make sure it’s lined up well. Put your piece of parchment paper over it and then press it. Again, I did 330 degrees for 20 seconds. And turn over one more and hit it again for just like 10 seconds, and again, wait till it’s cooled off just enough and then you can peel it as it’s warm. And if you’re at all concerned about it warping a little bit, ’cause it might warp just a little bit with the heat, you can put it under a
stack of your paper pads, which you probably have,
or a stack of books or whatever, and let it cool there and it’ll straighten out pretty well. I didn’t really have too many issues. And then put your sides on. So remember the top layer
of your Cricut Tool Bench gets the edging on all four of its sides. And your front panel and your back panel get edging along its two short sides. But the side panels don’t have any edging because of the way that we
construct and assemble this. So there we go, that is our top layer and it’s got edging all around. It looks pretty spiffy, doesn’t it? All right, so here are all of our pieces and it’s time for us to assemble it, and we’re gonna use hot glue. Now the sides get put on
a very particular way. Note where the sharp corner is on these and put them in the same
orientation that I’m doing. And then a line of hot glue on the underside of your top layer and hold it in place. You’ll note that the side
is not as long as the top and that’s on purpose, so
just center it in there. And then your front layer,
you just put hot glue along the sides and line the
underside of the top layer and press and hold everything in place so that it glues in the right position. So there we go. Looks pretty good, doesn’t it? So now it’s time to put in our tubes. I spray-painted these with
a silver metallic paint and you just put them into position and then you hot glue them from the bottom and then immediately turn it over and make sure that it’s in the right spot before the glue sets, right? You wanna make sure that the sides of your Cricut Tool Bench are
always touching the ground, and that your tubes are
touching the ground as well so that everything is the
same plane at the bottom. So just go one by one, and that’s really, I think, the best way I’m doing it. And if you have to, you can
adjust before the glue sets. And then we take the circles left over from when we cut out our chipboard, and we just glue them to the bottom. And this, then, allows us to move our Cricut Tool Bench around without our tools falling out. There we go. And if you wanna put a little extra glue on your tubes at this
point, feel free to do that. Otherwise, go ahead and
put your back panel on. If it’s very similar to the front panel. Hold everything in place
until the glue sets, and that’s it, awesome, huh? Now let’s fill it up. Now when I told everybody
in my Facebook Group about this project, I
got a number of questions about what the various things in my Cricut Tool Bench were. So I promised that I would
explain each of the blades, and the housings, and
the tools and everything, so that you have an idea. So here’s my pink Cricut
Tool Bench, all filled up. Let me show you what I have here. The corners here are the
alternate scoring heads for my Cricut scoring tool,
which is not this one, that’s my rotary blade. This one here, so you can change the head if you get the double scoring tool for different depths of scoring, and that scoring tool fits
right in that back spot. This is my rotary tool for cutting fabric and things like crepe paper. I use that on my Maker. This is my knife tool, also for my Maker. All these ones with the gold gears work on the Maker. This is another scoring tool. And this is another knife
blade, I have some extras. In the front here, this
is my Fine-Point Blade for my Explore, so see there. The pink one is the bonded fabric blade also for the Explore. The black one is the Deep Cut Blade, and this gold one here is,
it’s also a Fine-Point Blade, it just has a gold colored housing instead of a silver one. It’s the same, far as I can
tell, it’s exactly the same. I picked it up recently because it’s been a year and a half, or two years since I changed my blade and I thought, why not have a backup. And then I’ve got my
Cricut tweezers in here, I have three different kinds from various sets that I have. That’s useful when you’re weeding and doing small projects. I have my piercing tool,
my Cricut scissors. I like these ’cause they have
a little case on the end. My TrueControl Knife, my spatula. This is a weeding tool, I
actually have two of these. The one the left is old,
the one on the right is new. The point on the old one
is getting a little dull. And I have my cooling
tool here on the right and my scoring stylus on the left. I use the scoring stylus
mostly in my Explore. And then I have a bunch of markers, my fabric marking pen, and
a variety of Cricut pens of different thicknesses. Along the sides are my scrapers. The one on the left is really old, the one on the right is new. And then my big extra-large scraper, I love this thing, it’s great. And those are my tools
in my Cricut Tool Bench. Isn’t this cool? It’s so pretty, I love it. I’m really happy with how it turned out. And I love that I can
make something so sturdy on my Explore. On my Maker, no problem, it’s strong and it could make chipboard. But my Explore is also awesome, and it can do amazing things as well. One of the things I just love about these Cricut Tool Benches is how surprisingly sturdy they are. This blue one is rock-solid thanks to the heavy chipboard. And even the layer of iron-on glitter seems to make a difference. And the pink one, it gets its strength from its tubes, right? And you can put a surprising
amount of stuff inside. Both, it could be lifted
up and moved around without worrying that you’re
gonna lose everything in it. Super easy, little hand
holds on this side. And I can think of so many
fun ways to decorate these. I use glitter and foil, but
you could also paint them, or cover them with Washi
paper, or adhesive vinyl. You can also make these from
some different materials. A couple layers of basswood would work, for example, on your Maker. You could also use a couple
layers of lighter chipboard. For example, this is one, not this one, 1.5 millimeter chipboard. Card stock is gonna be too light, though. And I’m hoping to see
lots and lots of people make these tool benches,
and personalize the panel on the front with your name, or some cute pictures, or just even the word Cricut Tool Bench. And be sure to share your photos, I love to see what you make. So that’s it for today. Remember, if you can tell
me what you want to make I can show you how to make it. And remember, if you
wanna send me your ideas you can come on over to my Facebook Group, which is amazing, by the
way, I just love this group, and you’re gonna find, besides me, you’re gonna also find a
whole community of crafters just like you who are sharing their ideas and helping one another. You’ll find us at
JenniferMaker.com/cricutcrafters. Until next time. (cheerful guitar music)

  1. So excited to get your notifications! I liked the video before it even played because I KNOW you’re gonna bring it!

  2. Hi Jennifer Thank you for all you do. From tutorials on How to use your machine, to how to create something, to how to build. This is so great. I recently purchased the Cuttlebug and multiple dies, and I bought the heat embossing tool and 2 powers….however I think I need more to get the powders to stick. As for the tool holder, I LOVE it! Right now they are all in my shoe box tub and it's hard to find the weeder or the stylus at a glance!

  3. Thanks so much for this awesome tool bench…I love that it has the ability to hold more than just the blades. I know what I am making on my Maker today!

  4. Such a fun cute tool box, i had to do a double look when i read tool box lol Jennifer you are a gem! Your videos rock!! ♡♡

  5. Such a great organizer, I am a Silhouette cameo 3 user, I used to use the Cricut Expression and was so limited to the cartridges, so now I have switched to Silhouette. I have business edition will this work with my software? Great video and i love repurposing the vinyl tubes

  6. You are so great in providing your files for free! I’d actually pay however because they are so unique & awesome!

  7. Thanks, Jennifer! I would really like to make a gift card/ticket file box. Sometimes, I will get several gift cards that I don’t want to spend immediately or get tickets in advance of the show. Maybe something like a scaled down recipe box?

  8. Thank you so much for the awesome tool caddy, I really need this and you make it so easy! I love these videos and I hope you will continue them. 💖

  9. Thank you so much for sharing something we can all use and make. You gave easy to follow instructions. I really appreciate it!

  10. FABULOUS! Jennifer, this covers all of my Cricut Tools. It was getting a little crazy stopping in the middle of a project to get a different tool from the tray or searching for my scrapers. Thank you so much.

  11. Thank you Jennifer!!! I am making this tool bench right now! I have the Cricut Maker and I've been struggling with actually making something to completion. I'm sitting here watching you and I will watch again and follow along once it's finished cutting. I'm using a very heavy art board to make it. I'm excited!

  12. This is awesome and the most inclusive design Ive seen so far. It would have been nice to have a drawer or something down further to store extra blades but I really like the design, very simple and easy!

  13. Thanks Jennifer you have helped me a lot and I love your projects. I was wondering if you could design a box that would work to hide cables. I know I have 2 ebooks, and Ipad, Iphone and netbook. All are in a docking type station but all of their cords just show from the device to the docking station. Would love to have a box designed to hide all these ugly cords!

  14. How do you keep the chipboard from coming apart? Mine only gets 5-6 cuts deep and starts shredding. Ruined two pieces already :/

  15. Hi Jennifer, thank you for your free patterns. I have a question, this is now my second failed attempt cutting chipboard on my maker. It is making too much debris that the blade always gets stuck. The cut lines move im pretty sure. I followed all the instructions. What could I be doing wrong? TY

  16. That you, Jennifer. I was just asking today on the Cricut webpage that they need to come up with some kind of storage unit to house all their tools & accessories. This is perfect!

  17. Your the best just got my cricut today.But have been watching your vids for months.Love your library and now doing a project with you..

  18. WOW WOW WOW!!!!! @JenniferMaker
    I cannot wait to make this!!!! I've been looking at so many jars, cups, organising websites for JUST the right thing for my growing collection of tools and accessories. I've been going through your older videos and today this one popped up. THIS is just what I've been looking for and I didn't even know it existed until today LOL. I'll have to see who stocks chipboard near me or where I'll be able to get it. I'm very excited for this project.

  19. Love it but you may have to redesign a new one now that Cricut have brought out four new Maker tools😊

  20. Does this have to be resized? My image is 5.464 W by 5.464 H. I can tell my smallest scraper won't fit in any slot. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any help! Love your videos Jennifer!

  21. hi Jennifer when I upload the svg & try to make it I see its only about 6 inches only on half of my mat. do you have the size of project ? THANKS IN ADVANCE

  22. I don't know what I am doing wrong but my Maker refuses to cut this properly. I have it on a strong mat, I have the chip board taped down, I have a brand new knife blade, and I calibrated the knife blade before I used it. The only thing my Maker does successfully with this project is to create a huge shredded mess all over the outside and inside of the machine. After it is done with that, the blade always gets stuck. I'm so disappointed I couldn't get this to work. For my own sanity I think its best I buy a tool holder off Etsy. LOL.
