Sentiments for the Cuttlebug Awareness Ribbon Die

October 5, 2010 at 10:36 am 27 comments

If you have the Cuttebug Awareness Ribbon die (I picked one up for less than a dollar on clearance recently) then I have a free gift for you. I created 2 sheets of sentiments with guide squares that make it easy to line up the die with the printing. Here’s how:

1) Download the PDFs. This one for cancer and this one for the military.
And by request, full sheets of each of the cancer sentiments here.
Also by request full sheets of hope, love, believe and inspire.

2) Print the sheet on colored paper at 100% size (uncheck fit to page, etc.).

3) Use scissors to separate one sentiment, leaving a margin around the guide square, and place it face up on your cutting plate. (I’m using a Cuttlebug so it goes on top of the A plate and a B plate)

4) Place your ribbon die face down on top of the design and line it up with the printed square.

5) Run it through your die cutting machine with proper sandwich (I placed another B plate on top). Be sure to place plates on top carefully so die does not shift.

6) Remove die to reveal your completed ribbon.

7) Separate and repeat for each design as desired.
(All sentiments from cancer file showed in pink, all sentiments from military file shown in yellow.)

Hope you enjoy using these sentiments to make something encouraging for a cancer survivor or military person you know. As always, I’d love to see what you make. Here’s a card I did for a recent message board challenge:

    I don’t own this and truthfully didn’t even know it existed. I just wanted to say how nice it is of you to offer this information and file.

    Can you please do a sheet if Believe and one of Love? I have cut many many of these today to put inside the thank you cards we need to send out for our making strides walk. I would really love to have these two sheets also.

    How do you tell where ti out the slogan on the square so it will fit inside the ribbon?

    Love these. Thank you for sharing.

    This is awesome- I don’t have the ribbon die but will start looking for it. My mother volunteers for the USO in Texas- keeps a scrapbook for the center- host some of the single soldiers at the holidays. My dad was in the military 20+ years= I just love the use of both these- Thank you so much for sharing

    This Cuttlebug Awareness die is in very short supply here in Scotland and I think in the rest of the UK.

    If you know of a supply please let me know?



    • 24. Kay  |  April 12, 2011 at 9:42 pm

      Sorry to hear that Archie. Hopefully someone can share a source.

    Hi there, simply was alert to your blog thru Google, and located that it’s really informative. I’m gonna watch out for brussels. I will be grateful for those who proceed this in future. Numerous people will likely be benefited out of your writing. Cheers!

    I love these! I have a Cricut Imagine and don’t currently have a Cuttlebug but now that I see these and know that they have an Awareness ribbon die I am going to run and pick one up today!! I just started a Relay for Life team and have been cutting lots of things with my Imagine from the Pink Journey cartridge. However, one thing I would love to have are the Relay for Life words…Celebrate, Remember, Fight Back. Could you possibly do a page with those words or guide me as how to do it myself?
    Thank you so much for all of the other awesome files!!

    • 27. Fannie Cantrell  |  February 15, 2013 at 7:53 am

      And could you maybe do some that say Relay for Life, Walking for a Cure, Survivor, Caregiver, or anything else that may be useful for a Relay for Life event? I would absolutely just love to know how to get my measurements right to do them myself instead of harassing you! Haha! Thank you for whatever you can do for me.
