PROJECT #47 - LOST CRICUT TOOLS SOLUTION

Hello crafters.  Ok..... so I got a little frustrated today while I was using my Cricut.  
I kept misplacing my Cricut tools!  
(An invisible Leprechaun keeps stealing my tools)lol!!!  

So this is what I came up with!


Here is how I did it..... 
I cleaned the tools and the Cricut w/rubbing alcohol.  

I used Sticky Back Velcro (from Walmart) and applied the 
hook side (the rough side) of the velcro 
to the Cricut where it's most accessible and doesn't get in the way.   




















T
hen I applied the 
loop side (the soft side) of 
the velcro around the handles of the tools.



 BAM!
 Stuck em' to the Cricut!  
Now, this will be their permanent home.    
No more lost tools!
 (now I have to remember to put them back right after I use them...hehehe)

** REMINDER** 
Tomorrow, Friday, the 3rd,
 I will be picking the winner for the Cricut Cartridge, 
Trim The Tree,
 using Random.org!
