4 Steps To Help Save Craft Paper & The Environment
Wasting craft paper is bad for the environment, and it can also add up and put a dent in your bank account! Follow these three steps to help make sure your craft paper ends up on your project, and not in the garbage can.
ˇ Use your Paper Saver Button. When pressed, this key automatically rearranges your images to take up the least amount of space possible on your paper!
ˇ Peel images off your mat slowly. A spatula tool is especially handy for lifting your cuts up, and will help ensure your paper doesn't rip when coming off the mat.
ˇ Make use of your scraps. Place your scrap in the lower, left-hand corner of your mat. Then, use the arrow keys to move the blade so it is over the upper right-hand corner of your scrap. Next, press the Set Paper Size button. Your machine will now be able to cut within that area, making use of every inch of the paper.
ˇ Remember to adjust the Speed, Pressure, and Blade Depth properly, according to the medium you are cutting, to achieve a perfect cut.
For more information on adjusting your settings, refer to the Cricut Cutting Guide. This guide will help you get the cut right, the first time!
