1. Open up this project in Cricut Design Space. Click the “Make It Now” button and print out the snack tray designs. If this is your first time using the Print Then Cut feature, you’ll have to calibrate your Cricut. (Super easy, just follow the instructions on the screen!) Otherwise, follow the instructions on the screen for printing.***
2. Place your printed design on the Cricut cutting mat and follow the instructions on the screen to cut it out.
3. Use a ruler and bone folder to score the lines indicated in the photo above.
4. Run a glue stick along the tabs you’ve just created. Fold the sides up and glue the tabs in place, forming a tray.

***A few of you have mentioned that you don’t have a Cricut and would love a way to still be able to make the projects I share in partnership with them. Good news! I have a solution for you thanks to the new Print and Cut feature. If you’d like to make one of these projects and you don’t have a Cricut, follow the above steps through the printing step. Then, hand cut the design and continue with the remaining steps. I will warn you that this will be a bit more laborious as you will be hand cutting everything, but it’s a great solution for those of you who’ve asked!
