What can you make with your Cricut Maker

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

This is one of the most asked questions so I wanted to showcase just of the FEW projects that you can make with a Cricut Maker!

Before we delve into what you can make? Let’s talk about exactly what a Cricut Maker is.

A Cricut Maker is the cutting machine that is one of the best tools for crafters of all mediums and skill levels that allows you to cut, write and design. The Cricut Maker puts the creativity back in your hands allowing a limitless amount of possibilities and has the ability to quickly and accurately cut over 300 materials!

This post will highlight  projects that I made with the Cricut Maker using just a small fraction of the materials the Maker is capable of cutting. For a comprehensive list of all the materials,  please keep reading to the end!

WOOD SIGNS:

TOP:Being the tea lover that I am, knew I had to have a section in my kitchen dedicated to my addiction so I used some leftover lumber, Espresso stain and Premium Permanent Cricut vinyl in white to create this look!

BOTTOM LEFT: I clearly have a love for wood b/c this was also made from scraps along with espresso stain.  Instead of using vinyl I did the “freezer paper method” but instead of using freezer paper , I used stencil vinyl   to make a  “welcome” sign for my guest room!

BOTTOM RIGHT: Yup….more scrap leftover from  a headboard that I made for one of my bedrooms. Clearly the moral of the story is “no scrap will be left behind!” With that said I was able to convert this plywood into an art piece on the wall for my family room using the gold and white Permanent Cricut vinyl.  (SN: I’m the only person on the planet that can’t get into  the show This is Us #dontjudgeme.

CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS:

I look forward to Black Friday each and every year  (aka the official Christmas decorating holiday) because I can’t wait to pull out all my custom made goodies! My absolute favorite that I can never get tired of are these stockings I designed and made using gold iron-on! 

KIDS ROOM DECOR:

 

Captain America, I mean my son is a die hard superhero addict and I’m slightly worried he’ll never grow out of it.  With that said, Cricut Design Space has a ton of images for personal use that you can use to design a perfect space for your adventurous little one.

TOP LEFT: I despise clutter and my son loves Cap so I made a compromise that if I made him a Captain America “toy box” that he will put all his toys in there once he’s done playing. I can neither confirm nor deny that this bribery worked but it was fun using Cricut’s permanent vinyl to achieve this look!

BOTTOM LEFT:This dresser has been through IT. It was given to me and I have a rule that I don’t turn down potential quality furniture that I can repurpose.  This piece started off with a light stain, then I had the bright idea to sand and paint it white. 9 years later I almost made the mistake of tossing it until I came to my senses and decided to stain it expresso ( I promise I use other stains beside expresso!) I picked up sample paints from Lowes for the drawers and used permanent Cricut vinyl to apply my son’s favorite crime fighters!

RIGHT: True superheroes always wears their cape! (or maybe I was just tired of them on the floor)  In any case I used the Cricut Removable Vinyl to create the “Little boys are just superheroes in disguise” quote on the wall.

JEWELRY:

You’ll be happy to know that I took a break with Iron-on and HTV to play with wood and leather and I’m truly addicted! I was able to make these earrings using Cricut Basswood and you guessed…my espresso stain along with this geometric necklace using genuine leather!

CRAFT ROOM ORGANIZATION:

Since I despise clutter but have an addiction to scraps, I used these ikea storage boxesFoil Iron-On, and  Easy Press to make my craft space more organized and visually appealing!
