Cricut Design Studio cut file for target mailbox done!

I really need to start working on the blank mailboxes that I bought from Target. Valentine's Day will be here before I know it and I have to work on 25 of these babies for the 1st graders. 

I thought I was brilliant when I had the grand idea of using Design Studio to make a cut file for the mailbox. After working on it for 1 hour it dawned upon me that somebody else probably already made one. So I did a goggle search and I was right, there was already a cut file made last year! After some begging around, a kind crafter from the Cricut message board sent me the cut file. Unfortunately the dimensions were just a little different from what I wanted so I ended up spending another 2 hours working on my original file. It's finally done. Whew!

Here's a picture of a mailbox that I dressed up last year. No Design Studio was involved. :P

Please note that you will need Cricut Design Studio to open the file.

  2. Hey Nina, I totally forgot about this file! I did use this cut file for the mailboxes but I did it in Cricut Design Studio. I'm going to make a new one with Make-the-Cut. Thanks for the reminder!
