We'd love to hear from those of you who have used our foam and what you have liked about it? Perhaps the dimension? The bonus of zero waste as every scrap can be used? Or that you can run it through your diecut machine??

Please do share as we would very much like to hear from you!

1. Use Cricut Machine and Winter Wonderland cartridge to cut house 3 and house insert from patterned paper.
2. Cut UCutIt foam to slightly smaller for each wall of house insert.
3. Use Perma tac to adhere house, leaving the U Cut It smaller allows the UCutIt to butt against each other forming a solid wall.
