Using Newsprint with your digital Cutter

For many reasons, I love using newsprint in my paper creations and other art.  A. It's a cheap medium B. It's versatile, can be crumpled, torn, toned, etc. and C. It just looks cool!

However, if you have tried to cut newsprint, what makes us love it (its thinness and versatility), can also be a an arduous process when trying to use it with your digital cutter.  Granted it can be done, however its a bit of a process figuring out. Your mat can't be too sticky, but it has to be sticky enough to hold the thin paper down enough while it cuts, then you have to make sure your blade isn't cutting too deep with too much pressure. With the right stickiness, I can cut newsprint best using my zing with my blade at a two and my pressure about 80.

But the easiest and best way to cut newsprint, is to simply glue it to a piece of cardstock. Using a spray adhesive, spray one side of the cardstock and one side of the newsprint. Wait about 10-15 seconds then carefully glue the two pieces together. Then cut what you would normally cut the cardstock at, and it cuts perfectly and beautifully!

Use our new fun Doggy Cut It Set to create this fun and simple art work! We still have our choose your own sale going on right now, and some amazing bundle deals, so it's the perfect time to buy.

Good Ship Lollipop Candy Wrap

Beautiful gift wrap, is the icing on a delicious cake. The more delicious the icing, the more delicious the cake! Using the new Good Ship Lollipop Cut It, is a fun, beautiful and happy way to create some magical gift wrap, or even use the same set up for a gorgeous card!


Good Ship Lollipop Cut It
tissue paper
Bakers Twine
Paper flowers
kraft paper for gift wrap


Begin by cutting and assembling the candy elements from the Good Ship Lollipop Cut It.  I ended up cutting the ends off to the peppermint, so I could create a more 3-D version by fan folding a small piece of tissue, shown below.
Once your gift is wrapped (I love using kraft wrapping paper), I used my bakers twine to twirl around and glue into place on the gift. I just used small spots of hot glue here and there.
Then I applied my candy pieces, and sprinkled with a little glitter for that extra magical appeal!

Valentine Bot Box

Everyone will be "Nuts and Bots" about this Valentine Box. Modify one of our favorite new Cut Sets to make this electrifying box perfect for your little guy or girl.

Materials Used:

Curiosity Cut It Set
Accordion Fold Rosettes Cut It Project
SNF Simon Says Font
Shoe boxes (I used smaller kids shoe boxes)
gesso or paint primer
spray adhesive
glue gun
paper cups
screw brads


Decide where you want your valentine opening and cut those holes in your boxes. I cut my hole in the top center where the antennae is glued to, and a 2nd hole in the bottom box on the back. Then proceed by applying gesso or primer to your shoe boxes. If you are using shoe boxes with a sheen, a spray oil based primer would work better for you.
Let your boxes dry completely and then cover with either acrylic paint or spray paint. I painted the body Prussian Blue and the top box Island Blue just using craft acrylics. Again, if you have a shinier shoebox, opt to use a spray paint instead.

Cut out and assemble the robot pieces from the Curiosity Cut It Set.  For the face, you can cut it out like it is, which will cut the square with the nose and mouth, or to save paper you can bring the item in Make-The-Cut and break it apart (Right click>shape magic >control B). This enables you to delete the face and eye holes and just cut the nose and mouth.
For the arms I used Accordion Fold Rosette 08. And brought into Make-the-Cut pasting it twice, then flipped the second one, so I had a mirror image. (Right click>shape magic >control F).
Then I overlapped the two just slightly, and welded them together. (Right click>shape magic >control W).
For the Nuts and Bots about You, I just used the font SNF Simon Says cutting it out directly in Make-The-Cut. I created mirror images of any pieces I would see the back on, like the antennae, hands and knob ear things. I also added an additional little rectangle to the bottom of the antennae and knob ears so that I had a flap to fold over and glue, like shown. I also added little hearts to the antennae and meter arrow on the front.
And here are what all the pieces look like before putting them on the box.
Once the boxes dried, I started to embellish with my robot accents. I glued my antennae to the slot I cut out for the valentines to drop in.
My shoe boxes had the flip open lids, so I decided to create a little accordion fold piece of paper to attach to each side of the opening on the robot's tummy. You can either use the rosettes again for this and just expand the width, or accordion fold your own piece of paper like shown.
I then glued one end together so it created a fan shape.
I glued the fan to both sides of the box from lid to side. Be sure to check out last picture to see the full effect of this below.
I used just a tabbed strip, to go around the arms and legs. You can make this yourself, or we have many projects that include them like the Boom-De-Yada Cut It Firework Project. I sized the strip so that it was about 1.25 inches tall and 10 inches long. I cut 4 this size for the arms and legs.
I ended up trimming the arm ones down to about 6 inches in length.  I folded in half like shown below and wrapped around the arm and then glued into place.
I kept the leg pieces circular and used the whole 10 inches gluing to the bottom of the robot's belly. I then glued the cups in the center of these pieces upside down.
For the neck you will be cutting another strip, but you will need tabs on both sides, so you can follow the directions we used to create the arms by merging two of the strips together. The final strip should be about 2 inches high and 10 inches in length. I wrapped this together more tightly to create a sturdier tube. You will glue the two boxes together with this.
Glue on the head and you have one amazing Love Bot! You can choose to add the screw brads to the top to better hole the box together if you think it needs it, or just for a fun embellishment!
