It takes a village to plan a wedding. From your family to your vendors, each couple has a very unique group of special people around them during the process. They’re there because they care about you and want to support your love and marriage. Being grateful and giving thanks is what this next week is all about and so that’s what inspired this project. These darling gift card sleeves are the perfect packaging to show your thankfulness for all those special people around you. From your bridal party to your parents and from the bartender to your wedding planner, slip them a little something in the cutest way possible. Our exclusive gift card sleeve files are designed to print then cut using your home printer and your Cricut Maker, so while they might look like you bought them at the store, the Cricut does ALL the hard work for you. And if you don’t have one yet, here are more than 40 reasons why you’ll love one!

Add Score Lines

While you don’t have to do this step, doing it makes the folding of these sleeves SO much easier. Click to add a shape and choose score line; add 3 lines, one on each side and one across the bottom.

Attach

Select the file and all three cut lines and hit attach. This tells the Cricut that the score lines are now “attached” to that exact spot on the design file.

Print

If you’ve never used the print then cut feature of the Cricut, it can seem a bit intimidating but I assure you it isn’t! After you’ve attached the score lines you are ready to make the project. When using a print then cut file, Design Space automatically prompts you to print the file on your home printer and then place that print on the cutting mat. Click print. I’m using my Canon TS9020 and the Canon Matte Photo paper so I chose to print on those settings with the highest quality.

Add The Scoring Blade

Cut

Place the printed design onto a cutting mat and load into the Cricut Maker. Then watch the blade housing slowly read the black square registration mark with it’s bright light… and then score and cut the file! The black registration box tells the Cricut exactly where to cut on the printed design, it’s amazing.
