I love my "Cricut" and I have a few cartridges but storing them is a problem. I have to keep getting up and going to the book case to pull out the next cartridge. I've seen those premade cartridge holders but oh my!! They are costly. I knew there was something I could create. So I took a 3 Ring binder, some nice paper, my Cricut and heavy weight pocket protectors.
The pocket protectors were sewed in 1/2 and a little dab of Velcro at the top and now the cartridge and overlay as well as the sheet of images can all fit inside and I can hold 2 cartridges per sheet. By placing the sheet of images back to back, I can turn one protector over and see all the image's that I can make. Total cost was $1.59 for the 3 ring binder. I had everything else.
Then I made a craft for August. When I need to groom August, we are not always home so I wanted a small grooming kit ready in the car. I had material from another project so I made this:
It holds the slicker brush, a comb, a small bottle of conditioner, and a mat splitter. It all folds up and can fit in the car. So when I need to freshen him up, all the supplies are there. Total cost $0.00!
I also made a few cards. I love making cards. I love sending them as much as I love getting them.
Then I made a God Box? I used a box that I already had and covered it. Once the paper was on the box it no longer closed the way it once did so I taped ribbon to the inside and now it opens and stays attached just fine. I'll talk about the God Box in another post.
