I-Top Circles Made with Cricut

When I got my I-Top, I had asked on the Cricut MB if anyone had a .cut file for the different size circles to make the I-Top brads. I got no answer, not sure if no had one or if everyone that has the I-Top just bought all of the I-Top Punches. Well, I could only find 1 size punch & figured that somehow I could make or someone would have a cheaper way to make this, rather than buying all 3 punches.

So then I got the Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge. I thought the Flower4 (Pg. 52 in the Sweet Treats Handbook) would be perfect. I could make it the right size and the way the petals were split it would work. And it did - PERFECTLY!

So this is not so much a .cut file, but a little cheat sheet in .cut file format. It's nice to have this on hand to cut 1 or as many as you need to have on hand. My file has a page for each size. I have all of the score marks hidden and each page is set up for 4 flowers. You can hide some if you want to only cut 1 or copy more to add more. If you copy them though - you will have to save, close, & re-open the file in order to hide the other score marks.

HERE is the .cut file and it will also be on the left side of my blog under My .cut Files.

And for those of you that don't have CDS, I'll list the size of the flowers that you can cut straight from your Cricut. Again, use Flower4 on pg. 52 of the Sweet Treats handbook, the blackout cut.
Small - 1 1/4
Medium - 1 3/4
Large - 2 /14
I hope this helps.
Thanks for looking. Questions & comments are always welcomed.

I just got i-top today, and this is exactly what i was looking for - otherwise I would've had to design my own tonight. You saved me a lot of time!
