CRICUT: Free Tea Bag Holder cut file


This weeks free Design Space file is based on an awesome project by Sam from Pootles Papercraft.

I've been trawling the internet looking for ideas for our Free File Friday and came across Sam's blog. Can I just say I want to make every... single... thing... she has shared!!!

I contacted Sam and asked if it was okay for me to create a Cricut Design Space cut file from one of her projects to share with all of you... and she said yes!

So, without further ado... let me introduce you to the Pootles Papercraft Tea Bag Holder Folder!




They will make the cutest gifts to give to friends or family. Each one holds 4 of the Twinings size tea bag envelopes. (Well, they used to be envelopes. Seems Twinings has cut costs and don't pack their teabags in those cute little envelopes anymore...)

Here's a side view of the holder...





Inside you'll find four of the cutest little envelopes each one containing a tea bag!



And here's Sams versions...



I found they also fit coffee sachets. And imagine one filled with Ghirardelli Chocolate Squares! Drool....

These are the pieces you'll find in the cut file. It might look complicated, but it really is a simple project to make!



You'll notice in Sams video she uses flowers as the envelope closures.  I create my files using the free Cricut Craft Room Basics cartridge so that anyone with an Explore can cut it but unfortunately there's no flower on that cart so I used a circle instead. But you can hide or delete those circles and add whatever shape you like in their place.

Here's the link to the Design Space file: https://design.cricut.com/#/design/19332683

And make sure you watch Sams video! She shows you exactly how to put this beautiful project together! Here's the link to the project: 



Please leave Sam some blog love while you're there. And if you happen to live in Wales, UK and need a Stampin' Up consultant... then look no further!

A Public Service Announcement.... you will most likely lose hours at Sams blog.... I watched video after video after video!! You have been warned! :)

I hope you enjoy this weeks file. 'Til next week....


Happy crafting!  ♥

Quick question you said you have the file for the Cricut Expression how do I download that file and where?

Narelle said...

Jodi, the file is for the Cricut Explore, not the Expression.

At some point I may re-create the file in CCR so that it can be cut on the Expression, but my to-do list is pretty long. :)

I'll post on my blog when I have it done. :)
