I generally like to draw with the Chomas Creations mini gel pen holder before I cut. Just don't want the cuts moving around on me on my mat!
So I start by putting the mini gel pen into the holder. The point faces out of the big hole, and the flat end goes in. The small hole is only for the removal of your gel pen (I use whatever is handy, a pen, scissors, stylus, etc... There is no need for a special tool)
Add your paper to your mat, and put it in the Cricut. I like to add a piece of scrap paper on top of my paper when I am putting the gel pen into and out of the machine so I don't accidentally write on my project. The pen goes in place of your blade holder.
