Click on either the image or the black download button underneath the image to download a file. The blue underlined link, View the Tutorial, will take you to the blog post for each free file.

You can search each page by keyword. Press Command + F (on a Mac) or Control + F (on Windows) and a small search bar will appear at the top of the screen. Type your keyword and press Enter. The keyword will be highlighted on the screen. Use the small arrows next to the search bar to jump to each highlighted keyword.

After clicking on the picture, or the black Download button, your file will automatically download to your computer’s Downloads folder. Most files are a PDF. Some are SVG files which will download as a ZIP file.

When you click the picture or download button it may seem like nothing is happening but the file is being downloaded to your computer. Check your Downloads folder and also your Desktop and Documents. If you are trying to download the file on a cell phone, I recommend using a computer if possible as sometimes phones are weird!

My SVG and PNG cut files will download in a ZIP folder. I use ZIP folders to download more than one file at a time. If you are using a computer/laptop you do not need anything fancy to open a ZIP folder. On a Mac, double-click the zip file and it will open. On a Windows, right-click the zip file and select Unzip or Extract. If using an ipad/iphone you may need an app to unzip the file.

Open Cricut Design Space and start a new project. Select “Upload” from the left menu bar and then “Upload Image”. Find the file on your computer. It can usually be found in your Downloads folder unless you moved it to a new location. Select the file and insert it into your project.

My SVG files will open at the scale shown in my projects but some have score lines that will need to be changed from cut to score. For more information on setting up my cut files in Design Space, view “Setting up Animal Notepads in Cricut Design Space“. Even if you aren’t making an animal notepad, many of my files are similar and this post may be helpful!

At this time, all of my free files are for personal use only. For more information, please see my Terms of Use.
