I used the Close to my Heart Cricut Artiste cartridge for my folder template. It's on page 47 accent 2. Since I wanted to make a 12 x 12 folder and I don't have paper that's 12 x 24, I had to make the folder in two pieces. One piece was cut with the Cricut Explore and the other piece was simply a piece of 12 x 12 card stock. When I inserted the folder image into design space, I immediately used the Slice function to cut off the bottom portion of the folder right at the score line. I then removed the score line. Since Cricut Design Space won't allow a full 12 inch cut, my cut size for the front of the folder was 11.27 wide by 11.94 high.
To cut this size without having the height cut off, I placed the paper .25 inch from the top as shown below.
seam on outside so paper wouldn't catch
score 1 inch from edge
If you're interested in making these in Cricut Design space, here is the Cricut Design Space File.
Tomorrow's post will be all about the NEW 2015-2016 Close to my Heart Idea book!
