Cricut Imagine Cartridge Swatches

I made these so I could see exactly what the colors will look like and also make it easier to  coordinate my paper for projects. I did this with each of the 11 imagine cartridges I have.

To start I used the stock square that is already on the imagine.  Then you count how many square you will need to print each pattern paper and solid color, put that number of square in your que and then fill each with a color or pattern. I cut the square at 1 inch and 26 or 27 will fit on one 12x12 paper. When you are finished with all of them punch a hole in them and put a binder ring ( got mine from staples) through them. I keep them inside the cartridge the go with.
I hope is helps anyone with a imagine cartidge.
