Doodlebug Yankee Doodle Cut Files

Doodlebug's newest cut file release is SO CUTE!!!  You are going to love these versatile, not just for July 4th, cutting files.  An adorable horse, darling cottage, words, flags, flowers, and more!  And remember, you can use these designs with any of the Silhouette, or Cricut, etc. cutting machines because the files are available in the Silhouette Online Store, and as SVG files in Lori Whitlock's online shop.   

A few of my favorite cutting files in this release are the heart, the USA, and the Love the USA blocks.  

I made the heart into a folded card by welding the base heart shape to a vertically flipped duplicate.  Here's a tip:  once you cut the stripes out of red paper, save the negative image and lay it over your white base card.  It will help you position where the red stripes should be placed.  I had a 5x5 square envelope, so I made my heart 4 3/4" wide.  Always be sure your card will fit into a standard size envelope before you start cutting.

I love that the little heart on the USA cutting file can be cut separately and placed anywhere on the shape ... since I live in Georgia, I placed it there :)

The Love the USA blocks are really fun.  You could add the entire phrase, or just the "I (heart) U" to so many projects.  I used foam adhesive to give the blocks a little dimension, and I'll use the USA shape on other projects in the future ... travel, home ... etc.  

That's it for me today ... hope you check out the rest of the super cute Yankee Doodle cut files and share your projects with us on Facebook or Instagram @doodlebugdesign!
