Materials and supplies needed
Cricut scoring wheel
Fine point blade
Jewel Cardstock Sampler 12×12
Sorbet Cardstock Sampler 12×12
Basic Cardstock Sampler 12×12
Light Grip Mat 12×12
Hot glue gun
Jill also used the following Design Space images:
Snake Book Corner #M456F5
Lion Book Corner #M406D8
Shark Book Corner #M44C3B
Gorilla Book Corner #M45EE6
Review the image options in Design Space. There is no need to re-size them. Pick the colors of paper you wish to use and proceed to the cut screen. Since there are scoring lines included in the design, Design Space will prompt you which scoring wheel to use.
This will depend on the material you pick. We are working with card stock therefore the software will suggest the single scoring wheel. You can tell by the number on the side of the wheel. The single wheel is designated as 01. Design Space will let you know when to place it in the machine based on the cut layers. The single wheel creates a single crease on the cardstock.
Then, Fold the large piece along the crease lines and secure with the hot glue gun. Then you’ll start assembling the animal bookmarks.
