Cricut Cut + Write Tutorial with Courtney

Hello!!! This is Courtney Lee from Court’s Crafts here with the new (and adorable) mason jar box card. I wanted to show you how to personalize it and make it your own using the cut and write feature of your Cricut Explore Air.

Change the marks on the jar lids to “write”.

Personalize by adding text.

I’m never one to throw away a die cut so… shrink the “love” to fit on the bottom.

Personalize further by adding your name. (This is going to be CUTE!!!)

See that “attach” button top right? Attach all layers together by holding down “shift” and clicking all the pieces. This will make it so the cut and write feature happens at the same time. Do the same thing with all of the other pieces just to make sure the scoring marks are attached to the correct pieces, etc.

Cut out and check it out!!!! The Cricut Explore is AMAZING with the write and cut feature (with the dual tool holder!! I did it at the SAME time!!! ugh. love..)

Check out how awesome the Cricut Explore Air did at the “cut and write” feature!!!

I adhered the “love” to the card and popped the jar top to the first layer.

Then I glued the stems to the leaves and curled the ends up on one layer. I adhered those with pop dots too.

Use the enamel dots to add dimension. Paste layer one directly to the inside front of the card.

Ink the edges of the pink flower and the yellow flower centers.

Layer 2

Card complete!



I hope you enjoyed my tutorial today!!! It’s so much fun to use the Cricut Sketch pens on cards in neat and creative ways!
