Basic Perforation Blade: 

Get the perfect tear quickly and effortlessly with precise perforation cuts for a wide variety of projects. To create uniform, finely perforated lines for any design, just snap this tip onto the QuickSwap Housing and tell your Cricut Maker to "Go!" Evenly spaced perforation lines allow for clean, well-spaced tearing without the need to fold beforehand – especially great for shapes with curves. Perfect for tear-out booklet pages, raffle tickets, homemade journals, or for any project that demands a neat tear.

Wavy Blade:

Get a decorative edge in half the time than a drag blade with a gentle wave cut for a wide variety of projects. To add a whimsical wavy edge to any design, this specially sculpted stainless steel blade is great for original vinyl decals, iron-on designs, envelopes, cards, gift tags, collage projects, or any time you need fabulously finished edges and stylish design accents. Perfect for iron-on, vinyl, paper, cardstock, fabric, and more.  

Fine Debossing Tip:

Add professional polish and elevated elegance to paper crafts by creating crisp, detailed debossed designs. Unlike folders, which lock you into a specific design, this rolling debossing ball, with a wider range of motion, gives you free reign to customize, personalize, and design with incredible intricacy. Make a dimensional wedding card, thank you card with your monogram, or add flourish to gift boxes, tags, and more. Creates a stunning effect on foil cardstock, coated paper, shimmer and glitter paper, basswood, and much more.  

Getting Started!

Begin by clicking on the CDS Project and opening up the card. It's a little different than pictured below because I added the flowers. The best part of this set up, is it shows you all the tools needed on the left side bar and the order they are needed. This was a fun card to design! Note: This was done on a desktop, I don't know if it translates perfectly to a mobile device. If you try it, please let me know!
Place the paper on the cutting mat and follow the screen prompts. It asked me to insert the pen into the holder A and the Debossing tip into holder B. Then click the start button and watch it work. Seriously though, I always watch the entire process, completely mesmerized by the robotic sounds and smooth movement.

 Once done with the drawing and the debossing, it will bring up a "tool change required" prompt. Just do what it says, in this case, load the perforation blade into clamp B. At this point you can remove the pen as well. Do not eject the mat during this process!!!
I love the perforation tool so much. For some reason I just want to make endless coupons. Did you ever make those coupon books for your parents...with free hugs, help with dinner, babysitting, etc? I did all the time, and you know, my mom actually used them!

 After the perforation is done, it will prompt you to change the blade to the wavy cutting wheel. This one is a fun one too! It's just a subtle wave.
Place the wavy cutting wheel into holder B and press start again.

 Cut a 8.5X5.5 piece of the pink paper and fold in half for the card. Then layer the cardstock on the pink card. My cardstock is reversible, so I flipped the largest piece over.
 Tape down the biggest piece to the card, then add the debossed card on top. Then use the mounting foam and a cut 2 pieces with a knife or scissors.
 Stick the foam to the back top of the perforated card. Then peel off the backing and stick it to the center of the card.
 Then stick on the little pink flowers. It's adorable! The wavy cut line double cuts, to give it a varied edge which I thought I wouldn't like, but I actually do. It makes that wave edge stand out.
 This is an A2 size card (1/4 a piece of 8.5X11 paper) and fits in that size envelope. Great way to let someone know you are thinking of them. I love sending snail mail...don't you love getting a handmade card in the mail?
Let's talk about the Cricut Maker. It has 10X the cutting force, allowing things like wood, craft foam, chipboard and fabrics to be cut easily. The adaptive tool set allows versatility in cutting, scoring, engraving, embossing and more.
