Last week, I shared a fun, Harry Potter-themed, chocolate frog box template. This was definitely one of my most complex files to date! Not necessarily because of the exterior design on the package itself (although that certainly added another element to it), but because I decided to set up a “print then cut” version of the file. Since files like this require multiple extra steps upon importing into Cricut Design Space, I thought it would be a good idea to make a video tutorial of the process. See how I used my Cricut to make my chocolate frog box, and learn how to prep “print then cut” files with score marks.
First off, I’d like to apologize to all my silhouette users as this will only apply to Cricut and Cricut Design Space. The good news is, that you can still make my chocolate frog boxes by hand without too much trouble!
When setting up this file, there are four key tools to be aware of:
Also, Cricut was only able to handle “print then cut files” with a width of 5.25” in the past, but it seems that has changed (woo hoo)! Now you can use nearly the entire width of the page—printing at nearly 8” wide. They still require you to leave room for the registration marks, which makes sense.
Watch the video to see how I set my chocolate frog box template up in Cricut Design Space:
If you enjoyed learning how to prep “print then cut” files with score marks. I use a Cricut Explore to do my die cut designs, and I absolutely love it!
I hope you found this video helpful! It’s likely that I will refer back to it if I offer any more “print then cut” files in the future. If you liked this design, what kinds of “print then cut” projects would you like to see me offer in the future?
