Some Basic Information About My Site and My Files:

First a note about my files:

All my files are for personal use. I do not charge for any files I create. I share them here for others to use for personal use only. Please do not use them to submit for contests, etc. without getting my permission first. Please give credit where credit is due. I will try to do the same. This means I will try to identify where I got an item or a project if I didn't create it myself and there is an identifable source. Sometimes however I use basic clipart or coloring pages. You may however share these files with others for their personal use (you may not charge for them - you may pass them on for free) or you may point them here to my blog to get the files themselves. If a download file is available, it will appear at the bottom of the post and will be in a different color text.

PLEASE NOTE: I reside in the USA where we use the MM/DD/YYYY date format on computers (and in everything else we do!) If you are outside the USA where they use the DD/MM/YYYY date format on computers, you MAY experience an "Unhandled exception" error when you try to open one of my Cricut DS files. It is an error related to the date format. An easy fix is available at SusanBlueRobot's Blog. Susan has a simple HexEdit program and directions which will allow you to alter the date so you can use the files. Note: This is only an issue if the save date of the file is after the 12th of the month! It is also only an issue with DS files. I have never seen this issue with MTC or SCAL.

"Tri-fold" Gift Card Holder

This is another gift card holder. It is a "tri-fold" gift card holder. As you fold it 3 times. First you fold it in the middle so that you create a "page" with the slit in the middle of that page. This is where the gift card is placed. Then you fold so that you have the "front cover" and then the "back cover". You glue down the back and sides of the middle fold making a pocket. There are 2 files in this one .cut file. There are files for a small holder which is approx. 4 1/4 x 3 inches and a larger holder which is approx. 5 x 3 inches. It uses the George cartridge.
I will have to update my post with the "where" I saw this. It was a You Tube Video from someone with Stampin Up. I created it and thought, oh - I could do that with the Cricut then created my .cut file. I hope you can find it useful.
I've uploaded a couple of pics for you to better "see" how it works.
