OK guys you have two options:
Option 1-- with Cut File. No cutting ladies it is all done for you with your handy dandy Cricut. Just score, adhere and assemble!!! You also get a tutorial with step by step instructions on how to assemble. I used the George Basic Shapes Cartridge for the Cut File.
Option 2-- without Cut File. With this option you get the tree pattern and step by step instructions with measurements on how to assemble. Just so you know, this is how I start all of my projects with hand cutting. So really it wasn't laborious, I promise. The end result is totally worth it!!!!
