You probably bought a machine because of all the Cricut projects you wanted to make. There are loads of different ideas and crafts that you can create using a Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore. But you have to take it out of the box first!!
Cricut DIY projects will require you to have a few supplies on hand. Those will depend on the type of projects you want to create. I’m more of a paper crafter. I do have a ton of vinyl on hand and like to switch over and make shadow boxes, decorative cups, and shirt decals.
You will also need to have a good understanding of Cricut Design Space and the functions of your machine. Making projects and crafts will go a lot smoother when you have a good solid understanding of the software and the mechanics of your Cricut Maker.
What Projects Do You Want to Make…
Whatever projects and crafts you choose to make with your Cricut, there are examples all over.
Hopefully, this list gave you some great ideas of where to start with your new machine. Now that you have a good idea about the types of things you can make with your Cricut, you can start to add some of your own personal touches to the projects that you find online.
The best way to learn is to replicate someone else’s project. Then the next time you add a few of your own ideas and things that popped in your head while you were making the first project.
Experiment with materials. Play with different ways to cut vinyl and paper. Try layering. Use some of the different Cricut blades. There are so many new and unique things that you could design with this machine. You are only limited by your imagination and creativity!
