Cricut Sample Fonts

Hi Bloggers,

I don't know about you, but when I'm searching for the perfect Cricut font to match my project, I often struggle to visualise the font from the images in the handbooks.

I came up with this idea:

I cut strips of white card 12" x 1 1/2" and punched a hole in the corner so they would hang up.
I cut letters to spell the name of the Cricut cartridge used, along with any shadows and variations. I also cut samples of the numbers on the cartridge.
As much as I could I tried to cut them all at 3/4" so I had a good comparison. Some I had to cut larger because they were intricate.

Spelling the name of the cartridge made it a very easy and quick reference.
Here is a picture of some of the strips.

Here's a close up.

I threaded a book ring through the holes and then it was ready to hang up.

I still have some cartridges to do so it's very much a work in progress. I can also add to it as I purchase more cartridges and it's a great way to use up scraps of card.

I hope you like my idea.
Thanks for stopping by.
