Do you wish you had a miniature drafting kit to go with it?
Of course you do! Who wouldn't!? Well, here it is!
Step 1: Materials
cnc cutter and make the cut software
thin cardboard - such as from the side of a kleenex box
thin flat flexible transparent plastic - "wrap rage" packaging works well
some type of adhesive: e.g. spray adhesive, brush on superglue
mtc file attached
note: make sure your cnc machine will work with Make the Cut. As of this writing, Cricut no longer works with it,but there are other machines that do: (Black Cat Cougar, Boss Kut Gazelle, US Cutter MH/Laser Series)
Step 2: Cut out the backing board
Position your chosen cardboard in the cutter and cut out the backing board layer.
I found I could cut the tissue box cardboard with one pass on high pressure with the blade set at deepest level (6).
Step 3: Score the backing board
The scoring lines will help you position the foam inset more accurately when it comes time to glue them on.
Step 4: Cut out craft foam inset
Lay your craft foam on the cutting board. Cut out the attached pattern.
I found that I could cut a decent result from the craft foam in one or two passes on medium pressure with the blade set at medium (4).
Neaten up any parts that didn't cut cleanly with the x-acto knife.
