Hi guys, thought you may like to see some bags I've designed and am selling to raise money for two local charities. My brother had cancer last year and I am selling these to support our local hospital in Birmingham and the Saving Faces charity. I decorated them with foam sheets cut on my mini cricut.

I'd seen so many blogs about how you can't cut foam on the mini, so being the kind of person not to let this stop me, I tried it out and when clicked into cut I clicked on custom mode and put the blade setting and depth setting to 6 and asked it to cut the images 8 times, carefully peeled foam off the cutting mat and just gently pressed my finger into the score lines and was able to carefully press out the image. So it just proves it can be done, though in truth I don't know if it will cut thick self adhesive foam. But it worked for me and have now sold £50 worth of bags with more orders coming in. All the images I used were the free ones that came with the cricut and the flowers were free cuts of the week from last week. Yippee and all this from a new cricut user.BigGrin

Thanks for reading. Happy crafting x

BTW why can't we just buy one image at a time, I wanted an image of a scottie dog and don't want to but the whole animal kingdom cartridge as I only want one image. Come on Provocraft give us the option please!Confused

I have emailed Cricut support here in England and asked them regarding the individual images, they told me they do them but didn't give me anymore info doh!! Have emailed a reply to ask which ones they do sell and they said they will pass my comments on so here's hoping.
