Cricut Craftroom Exculsive 3D Ornaments

So... On Wednesday I jumped on to see what new cartridge we could cut for FREE this week. I have to say I was disappointed to find it had not been  updated. Of course I waited till Thursday but still no change. Today I got on there and STILL no new cartridge.

That made me decide to just take a look and see what was on Craft Room. So I logged onto CCR and took a look at the CCR Exclusives. The 3D Bows are not available free any longer and and instead 3D Ornaments is free. Not sure where the glitch is. Maybe it's me... LOL! Here's what you get to do this week.

So maybe you aren't ready for Christmas decor yet. I know I'm not. So I went searching for some ideas. You can find everything you need at I did a quick search in their projects library and found this. I thought it was more appropriate for the season.


These are all made with the 3D Ornaments Cartridge that you can use for FREE this week. And of course... I fear spiders....  (yes, even paper ones). SOOOOO.... he's out. I think the little pumpkin ornament is adorable. So I think I'll make him. Click on the pics and it will take you to for all the details you need to make each of them. 

Click below for the Digtial Handbook. This will help tell you how to put your ornaments together as well. Very useful.
So that lead me to another cool thing that I learned today. Many of you may already know, but for those of you who don't... they have full directions for each of these projects. They provide a PDF file with complete instructions that you can print out. They even take it a step further and include a CCR file for you. All you have to do is download the file and open it in your CCR. How easy is that!!!! Then all you have to do is get the paper ready. 

If you are ready for some Christmas decor... or just want to get some cut while the cartridge is free... I found some more cool projects online using this cartridge. Check these photos out. Just click on the pic and a window will open separately taking you to the authors page.

Enjoy this weeks FREE Cartridge.
