Auto Raising, Flip Top, Cardboard, Cricut Tool Wallet

Hello peeps!
I feel like I've cracked the code!!
I got my cricut tool holder to function properly! so I called it:
Auto raising: It raises the inner drawer as you open it with the help of a ribbon mechanism
Flip Top: the top flips like a cigarette box.
Cardboard: That's what it's made of.
Cricut Tool Wallet: It´s not really a wallet, but I liked the rhythm of it, lol.

Please, note that YOU DO NOT NEED A CRICUT MAKER TO MAKE THIS PROJECT. This was cut and scored on a Maker, but using the same scoring Stylus that can be put on a Cricut Explore, Cricut Explore Air or Air 2 or a Cricut Explore One. If you do have the new scoring wheel, please let us know how much better it is in the comments below. This will fit any Cricut housing (Cricut Explore and above) so even if you don't have the adaptive tool system, this project is for you!
I want to take a line or two to express you how happy I am with the growth this blog has had. Awesome SVGs has been alive for 4 years now, and over 1 million crafters have visited from all over the world, I couldn't be more thrilled, so thank you!

Now back to this project.

I'm so excited to share and I really hope you find good use in this tutorial. As I've been doing for the past projects, I will upload a video tutorial for the assembly and this post, you can use as reference with the pictures and as a safe place to download the files directly from my Google Drive account.

This whole thing was made using 3 sheets of Neenah Classic Crest, Solar White 110 lb. Cardstock. I wouldn't recommend using any lighter cardstock to ensure the mechanism works just fine and the tool holder inside doesn't ward or bend.
You will also need 6 inches of 1" ribbon. Satin finish is better because it will allow for a smoother movement of the inner drawer.

The use of liquid glue is encouraged as it hardens the cardstock when it dries. Aleene's Tacky glue is always my choice, the working time is great and it doesn't take forever to dry. It's consistency won't make your cardstock so wet that it warps, keeping all your surfaces smooth and straight.

I'm happy you are here and Enjoy

  11. It may be fun to make videos, but it can also be a pretty daunting task, unless of course you have Mac video converter. Forget the frustration Most people have absolutely Youtube to Mp3 Converter idea of how they can put their video clips or even their QuickTime movies to common multimedia players such as MP4s, unlike those of the likes of iPods. People do not know how to do this as such players have no format to support MOV videos.
