I am enrolled in an online class teaching us how to use our Designer Calendar Cricut Cartridge. Our 2nd assignment was a flip calendar. I used Bazzill Swiss Dots paper. The circles are 5 inches. It took FOREVER to cut out all the cirlces. You could only cut 2 circles per piece of paper so I also used a ton of paper. I set up an assembly line and while one 12x12 mat was in the cutter I was loading the 2nd 12x12 mat.
