Make Your Own Cricut Cutting Mats

     Yes that title is read correctly, and yes I am sharing a little secret with you that I just found out over at the 2011 get organized challenge facebook group.  The Dollar Tree Dollar store has these veggie chopping mats that they sell that are the exact thickness of a cricut mat and the same size!  I use Krylon Easy-Tack Repositionable Spray #7020 when making my current mats resticky.  I almost always use mine until they crack in half and then I repurpose them for putting under projects that are messy.  Yes call me cheap but this is an expensive hobby and I like to think it allows me to buy the next have to have product on the market (Wink,Wink).

     Heres a picture of what you are looking for.........

and here is what the spray looks like.........

Tape off the edges with blue painters tape spray on the adhesive and let set.  I then took the packaging the mats came in to use for "covers" for the mats.  You could also use your old cricut mat covers if you have them.

So there you go hows this for a happy World Card Making Day gift.

Back Soon,

  1. Hi Melissa,

    Great idea! I imagine you could use a Zig 2 way glue pen to make them sticky if you don't have adhesive spray?
