Nothing gets crafting machines down to a science the way Cricut does. Here are some Cricut projects to start with whether you’re a newbie or an experienced crafter.
9 Cricut Projects To Make the Most Out of Your Machine
1. Cupcake Gift Boxes
Nothing beats a special delivery of yummy cupcakes.
Instead of buying some cupcake boxes, why not make some of your own boxes to go along with them? All you need are some cute cardstock, some glue or double-sided tape, and your Cricut machine.
2. Giant Vinyl Clock
This pretty giant vinyl clock not only tells you what time it is but also makes very pretty home decor. Now you don’t have to look at your phone all the time just to know what time it is.
3. DIY Party Garlands
These party garlands make celebrations easy to set up without spending a lot of time making party decor. Just use your Cricut machine to cut various shapes and hang them somewhere for an instant party time look. To hang them before party time, you can use some tape, magnets, or even command hooks.
4. Nail Decals
Love the look of nail art but don’t have the skill to do it yourself? Vinyl nail decals to the rescue. You can use any type of vinyl your machine can cut
Note: Make sure to paint a top coat over your nails to lock the decals in place.
5. Iron-On Shirt
For those whose kids love all things shiny, here’s a colorful and sparkly unicorn shirt for your little one. All you need for this Cricut project are a plain shirt, some glittery iron-on vinyl, and the Cricut EasyPress machine.
Caution: Since you’ll be doing this on iron-on vinyl, make sure to mirror your designs first before cutting.
6. 3D Paper Stars
Paper crafts aren’t always flat surfaces. In fact, Cricut machines now allow you to make 3D crafts like these paper stars thanks to its advanced cutting and scoring blades.
Tip: For best results, use some deluxe embossed paper foil.
7. Leather Journal

8. Etched Wine Glass Bottle
An etched glass bottle makes the perfect hallmark to those very special occasions like anniversaries and job promotions. Use your Cricut machine to create your vinyl stencil for the etched design and use etchall cream to put the design in.
