Using my Cricut Explore I decorated these wooden mason jars..cut the words from vinyl and applied.. So easy to take something plain and make it more appealing with just a few words cut with the Explore and using Design Space and here ya go.
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.
Have you seen the xl scraper that Cricut is now selling? Great tool cleans off the mat in no time since its so much bigger, as well as using to burnish your paper, vinyl, etc to the mat. Or for burnishing your vinyl images to whatever you are putting it on. Check out the size difference.
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.
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 emboss..how cute is that. And how cute for a baby shower right..so many possibilities.
