Crafty Gift Idea and Freebie!

A-moo-se yourself with this idea!

[Edit - These files are no longer available from this site. Email me for details of how to access past files.]

Recently I had a fun day with friends doing our yearly "Secret Santa". We each had picked a name "out of the hat" and we had to make a gift for that person. I cut this mount on the Cricut and created little pieces of art to go behind each space. I think it looks awesome, but then I'm biased! LOL

If you cut this at 8x10 inches, which I did, you have spaces for the following pieces:

11 "moos" - a moo is a 1x3 inch piece of artwork
3 "twinchies" - 2x2 inches
1 "inchie" - 1x1 inch
1 half-twinchie - 1 x 2 inch.

It's a great way to use up little offcuts of card or paper or stamped images you have left over from other projects, don't you think?

Again, these templates will be "live" for 1 week. Next Saturday, they will be taken down, and new ones will replace them. Don't forget, if you have any requests, pass them on! I can't promise, but I will take suggestions into account when planning future templates.

These files may not be uploaded to a group, forum or website for sale or redistribution, or shared among individuals. They are expressly for the personal use of each person that downloads them from this blog.

There one file but I have put it into a zip file to make downloading easier. After saving it, open in the usual way, and drag the templates out onto your desktop or wherever you wish to save them.

There are 3 versions of each template:
  • A printable version (PNG files) that you can import into a program like Word, then resize, print, cut out and use like any other paper template (these are NOT Word files, so don't use File/Open in Word! Use Insert/Picture to bring them into a Word document).
  • An SVG version which can be imported into the Sure Cuts a Lot program and then cut out on your Cricut.
  • A DXF version which is Craft Robo friendly, and ready to be imported into your Robomaster software (I'm not a Robo user, so if there are any problems with this, please let me know!)
Simply right click on the appropriate button below, and choose "save link..." or "save target..." and save your template!

Any feedback on the templates is more than welcome, and if you have any suggestions for possible future templates you'd like to see, please let me know! If you make anything using one of the templates, please post a link to it here so that others can be inspired by how you've used them!

I hope you like the templates - let me know how you get on! :)

Thank you again! I've been wrecking my brain trying to come up with something like this. And it is resizeable, so I can even make a card with this.
