Make So Many Things with Cricut Maker!
There are so many things you can make with the Cricut Maker! Next to yarn, it’s the tool I use most for crafting. With the Maker you can cut anything from the most delicate vellum to vinyl, fabric, leather, basswood, and everything in between.
And the Cricut Maker isn’t just for cutting! It can draw, perforate, deboss, emboss, and engrave too. With all the great materials that go with the Cricut system, special tools, and accessories, it’s a whole world of creativity!
Top 5 Cricut Maker Projects
These DIY Engraved Bracelets were such a super-fast project! Perfect for holidays, wedding parties, you name it – you can make dozens at a time. And it is just. so. easy!
The Cricut Maker was integral to making this project – with the Engraving Tip! All I did was use the fonts in Cricut Design Space™ to write out what I wanted the bracelets to say, tape the bracelet blanks to the mat, and go!
I do love a quick and gift-ready DIY, and the Leather and Yarn Earrings is another project that fits the bill! With the Cricut Maker and Cricut Leather – and a bit of yarn – they came together in minutes!
The Maker cuts right through the leather using the Deep Cut Blade, and I loved the results. And Cricut Access has all the images you need to make great earrings of your own – in a variety of styles! Tie on some simple bits of yarn and voila!
Throwing a baby shower or birthday party, wedding shower, etc? It can get pricey! So I loved being able to make a custom Baby Shower Cake Topper with my Cricut Maker when I hosted a shower for my sister!
Once again, the Maker’s amazing cutting power was featured, as we cut this topper out of Cricut Chipboard. Cricut Design Space includes the font, and I did share both girl and boy graphics so you can make your own even quicker and easier!
After cutting it out with the Maker, all we had to do was use a bit of spray paint and glue toothpicks or skewers to the back! There are so many celebrations that you can perk up (and save!) by creating DIY party decor!
These socks are so much fun! Sassy socks are trending, and you can make your own for crochet and knitting – or really anything! Bring me wine, Shhh I’m gaming, whatever interests you!
The Cricut Maker can do lots of fancy things, but it’s also amazing at the basics, like cutting vinyl and iron-ons! And there are super handy templates in design space to help you size things just right, as well as great fonts and images in Cricut Access!
Colorwork is trending right now in both knit and crochet – and bobbins make it so much easier! Using the Cricut Maker, I created Sheep Yarn Bobbins to help keep the yarns sorted – and they’re cute too!
The Maker and Knife Blade cut out these bobbins in Cricut Chipboard and I love them! Once again I used the images in Cricut Access to create this project – a sheep and a rectangle did the trick! Cutting chipboard with the knife blade takes a bit longer than some of the other projects, but it’s a great “set it and forget it” while the machine does the work!
What would you use the Cricut Maker for? The possibilities are huge – and they just keep growing as Cricut adds more features and tools! See more on the Cricut Maker here!
