Picture Tutorial : Christmas Village 3d Advent calendar.

I recently received the Christmas Village Seasona Mini cart and was confused about the boxes.  I hope the Provo Craft considers enclosing some added instructions to the 3d creations on their minis. I first thought they were for support of the buildings.. but they were so tiny. After a lot of trial and error I figured out how to use them. I hope this helps you.

When you cut the buildings use the same size for the boxes so they fit in the openings.  The boxes can be cut larger if you wish to use them as gift boxes, but you would need to create your own top for them.

  5. Good lord hallelujah!!! Finally someone has some sensical information! I am working with this cartridge right now and it is a nightmare. I called cricut and no one new what to do with it - imagine that. Nothing useful on YouTube either. Any chance you know about any layers, because what I have are only images and, really, there has to be some layers to go with it. I've made my own interpretation of it, and it looks great; but darn talk about leave to the imagination!!

    Thank you for the insight!
