Do you want to make some Cricut projects but not sure where to start? Is it worth the investment? What materials other than vinyl can you use? I’m sharing a few easy project ideas that you can DIY at home no matter your level of expertise.
What can I make with my Cricut? I get this question every single time I mention making something with my Cricut. People are so intrigued about all the features that it has and the things that can be created with it. Honestly, the possibilities are endless when you have a Cricut. Whether you have a Joy, Explore or a Maker – there are so many things that you can make. I’ve made everything from cards to party supplies and wrapping paper.
What Can I Make With My Cricut?
Currently I own a Cricut Maker and a Joy. Before owning both of those, I owned an Explore Air 2 that I purchased for Christmas shortly after it was released. I’ll admit that when I bought my first Cricut machine I was so overwhelmed. There was a slight learning curve to learning how to use some of the more advanced features of the machine. After practicing and watching tons of educational Cricut videos, I became more comfortable with using my machine quite often.
My first few projects were simple. T-shirts and shoes using iron on vinyl. Once I mastered iron on vinyl, I moved on to practicing with other materials. Infusible Ink quickly became one of my favorite materials to work with.
