Paper Rosettes .cut File


Cricut Expression, Cricut Design Studio, Plantin Schoolbook Cartridge

Ever since I learned how to make these cute little Paper Rosettes, I use them for almost every layout or project. The only downside is all the scoring that needs to be done every quarter inch! My poor hand and arm get tired by the 5th score that I needed to come up with an idea to make all that scoring easier. And that when it hit me - Why don't I use my Cricut? I use it to score some other .cut files, why not a Paper Rosette?

I created a .cut file where the 12x12 mat is filled with lines spaced out every quarter inch. Simply turn your blade upside inside the housing and press cut. For more information go to Scoring with the Cricut.

A second mat - Paper Rosettes Rectangle - has 5 - 1.5x11.25 rectangles that I used on my Autumn Banner. But these can be sized to whatever Paper Rosette size you need. Simply resize, cut, score in accordian style and your Paper Rosette is ready for your project.  

Paper Rosette .cut File
Cut File is available via comment request. The .cut file comes in the form of a .zip file and includes pictures, TOU, and .cut file. Also please add a way to reach you in your comment. I'd love to see your finished projects, so don't forget to send me some pictures.

Thanks!

  1. You are so smart, I have heard of people turning their blades upside down to score with.
    I would love to have this file too, the scoring is exactly the reason that I have only ever made one of the paper rosettes and it didn't turn out very even and I have never tried it again.
    Thanks again for sharing!
