Instructions

Step 1: Download the Free Merry Christmas Money Holder SVG

Download the SVG file in my free Resource Library HERE. You can get the password for my library by filling out the form at the bottom of this post.

Save the downloaded zipped folder on your computer. Pay attention to where on your computer the folder downloads and then unzip the folder to extract the contents. The folder and files must be unzipped (extracted) before you can upload the SVG file into your cutting software.

Step 2: Upload the Free Merry Christmas Money Holder SVG File into Design Space

Upload the SVG file into Cricut Design Space. The SVG file will upload grouped together. Select all the contents of the file and click the ungroup button ONCE (and only once) in the upper right corner of your screen.

Step 3: Hide Rectangles and Change Cut Line to SCORE line

Once the design has been ungrouped, hide the rectangle layers. These will be cut later. In the LAYERS panel, look for the rectangles. To the far right of the layer, click the eyeball. This will hide the layer. Now, look for the thin, straight cut line layer. This layer/line must be changed to a SCORE line. This step is necessary to prevent the design from cutting in multiple pieces. Click the layer, then move over to the OPERATION tab and change it from Basic Cut to SCORE. After clicking score, you will notice that the term in the LAYERS panel will also change to SCORE.

Step 4: Attach the layers

In order to attach the layers, right click on the card base. A pop-up menu will appear. Scroll to find and click the ATTACH button. You can also click the ATTACH button towards the bottom right of your screen. Then click Make it in the upper top corner.

Step 5: Check Mat Preview

After clicking Make it, a new window will open with your mat preview. When you are on this screen, you will see the layers for the card base and the score line. Check to make sure that your machine will perform both operations: Score and Basic Cut. Look towards the upper left of your screen and find where it shows the operations for score AND basic cut. If you do not see both of these operations, click cancel and repeat step 3 to change the cut line to a score line. If both score and basic cut are visible, click continue at the bottom right.

Step 6: Cardstock Cut Settings

Once you click continue, your next screen will have your material selection menu. For this first cut I set my machine to Custom Settings and used the Cardstock (for intricate cuts). Check again to make sure that your scoring stylus/wheel and blade are loaded. After you have completed this check, you are ready to begin your cut.

Step 7: Load Mat and Cut Materials

Load the mat with your cardstock for the card base. Use your brayer to secure the cardstock on the mat. Then load the mat into your machine. Make sure that your mat is positioned and lined up according to the mat guides. You will know your machine is ready to cut when you see the flashing “c” button. Press that button to start your cut.

Step 8: Cut the Rectangles

After you have cut the card base, you must return to your main canvas to cut the rectangles. Take note that the rectangles are different sizes. The larger rectangle is meant to be attached to the back of the card (Using the larger rectangle is OPTIONAL. You can choose to attach it to the back card to cover the edges of the money or leave it off. That is your personal preference). However, the smaller rectangle is meant to be attached behind the opening of the front of the card (behind Merry Christmas).

Once you are on the main canvas, hide the card base and score line you just cut by clicking the eyeball on the respective layers. Find the rectangle layers and click the eyeball to the right of the layer to un-hide them. Drag a box across the rectangle layers, right click in the box and a pop-up menu will appear. Scroll the menu to find and click the ATTACH button. You can also click the ATTACH button towards the bottom right of your screen. Then click make it in the upper right corner, check your mat preview and your cardstock cut settings (determine your cut settings based on the type of cardstock you are using). After completing these checks, click continue to cut the rectangles.
