Cricut Explore Air is the deal of TODAY on Amazon

Thinking about getting the Cricut Explore Air.. this is a great deal for $215 and comes with the deep cut blade and housing so you can cut lots of thick materials, like wood, leather, foam, etc. And then you get the tool kit as well.

Using print to cut..

Made this cute little box in the Wrapcandy program, but then uploaded it to Design Space, added some score lines and let the Explore cut it out..must neater and faster then cutting it out by hand.

Mirrors using Cricut Explore and print to cut

Made up these mirrors for a Mother daughter using my 3 inch USAbutton maker along with my Cricut Explore..cuts perfect circles..

Cricut Print and Cut personalized magnets

Sure I could have let my Cricut Explore write out the words..but was much quicker to just use the print to cut feature.  Typed it up in Design Space and then print to my printer and let the Explore cut out the shape. Print and cut feature is great for many things..i'll have to post more of what i've use and used it for.

Paper tote bags using Cricut Explore

Now how cute are these gift bag paper tote bags..using 12 x 12 sheets of paper they are a nice size to get a decent size gift in.  I'm doing a few for my nephew for Teachers appreciation week so used some school type papers.  Any pattern papers will make these look great..or use solid colors and embellish them. One of the great things about the Cricut Explore you can upload images, or you can create using the free shapes that are in Cricut Design Space. I had to stop making these for a week or two they are so addicting, fun and easy to make.

I used some Cricut foil for the circles on one of the bags, gives it a mirrored look.  One of them i used my Cuttlebug to cute is that. And how cute for a baby shower many possibilities.
