How can cricut put up something like this and not give complete instructions. It doesn't say how many of the rosettes to cut out, how many of the square boxes to cut. How to put together the rosette. People who are new to this are still learning and with not complete instructions it is a waste of time and very frustrating to cut it out and then it doesn't fit all together. Please in the future state how many to cut , how to put something together for the newbies. You just might get a whole lot more people wanting to make your projects.

I was excited about the project too. However, the instructions are useless and I cannot download the file to import into CCR. Can anyone tell me how many cuts I make for the rectangle? I am a newbie and basically clueless. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I need details!

Really great looking project. Directions are so vague they are useless, but I thought I could piece it together. Relative dial size does not appear to be a feature, as I thought I could start will the lantern and then cut the rosettes and medallion to size. Was excited about this, but getting frustrated. Oh, and I was not able to download file either.

Thanks so much for the help! I'm using the rosettes for a different project, a 60th anniversary party that happens to be on the Fourth. I appreciate the answer :)

You need to cut 4 of the rosette pieces to have a completed rosette that is approx. 5" in dia. It seems as if you are using the free cut files in your craftroom. If you download the .ccr project cut file all of the pieces to create one complete luminary are already arranged on the virtual mat in layers. All you have to do it load up your machine and cut. It's much easier to use that than try to figure it out with the free file. The instructions with the project cut files are quite poor but it can be figured out once you see the cut pieces.

This instructions are terrible... anyone know how many cuts you need to make the rosettes? I'm at a loss.

I was not able to download with Internet Explorer but had no problem downloading with Firefox... hope that helps...

The sizes of the circles and the rosettes in the layers are in proportion to the luminary itself...rosette is approx 5" in dia. It will work with any color combo! I am already cutting some for Christmas : )... The instructions are quite vague. As for folding, there are 3 small slits along one of the long sides of the rectangle of the luminary. Score along those markings and fold then glue.

These instructions are so vague. How do I fold this thing?

PS...I am from Canada and our day is the first. This will work if I just do it in red and white. Also green and red for Christmas......orange and black for haloween :)

thankyou Ginny K for the size. I am guessing this is for the actual luminar. What about the circles and the rosette? I have not used my cricut much and have never done a project so forgive me if I should just know but don't

Also frustrated, tried to open files unsuccessfully

You're welcome. I can never open files with Adobe Air. I always have to import it into the craft room and then it's fine.

Thank you for the sizes. Now i am having an issue opening the file! UGH
