Ribbon Holder

So I was on the Cricut message board last week and saw a post by SentimentalScrapper that made a ribbon holder with her Gypsy. So I figured I would create an svg file for myself since I don't have Gypsy and here it is! I love it and it can keep my ribbon scraps organized, untangled and visible for me to know what I have left. She's got great instructions on her blog.

For my ribbon holder I used Avery plastic dividers. I figured this would hold up best instead of card stock. Plus look at all the cool colors!

I trimmed off the holes and the tab insert, so I ended up with a 7 3/4" x 11" sheet.

These are the blade setting I used on my Cricut Expression.

Standard Blade
Speed: 2
Pressure: 5
Blade Depth: 6

I was able to fit 8 tags on my sheet of paper. I only cut once and it cut perfect!

I used a 1" book ring that I found at the dollar store to keep my tags together. I wish I had a larger book ring but this will do for now.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks for sharing! Do you mind sharing the cut file? I'm not very good at designing my own :(

How do you design your own file for the cricut?

Would you be willing to share your svg or cut file for this ribbon holder? I would like to make some for myself and my mom but am terrible at making my own designs.
Merry Christmas :)
