Tips for Getting Started With Your Cricut
As much as you want to just go make something, it’s best to learn a few things first.
First, go follow Cricut on YouTube where you will find tons of very helpful videos. Begin at the beginning by watching the Design Space for Beginners video. It’s right here below for ya.
Next, choose your first project. All of these are good beginner Cricut projects with easy to follow tutorials. I made the Autumn coffee mugs using Dollar Tree blank mugs. Be sure to check that one out.
Some projects, like making pantry labels will only require the vinyl. You would be adding the labels to containers you already own. See how great your Cricut is going to be around the house!
Now, make a list of the supplies you will need for your project and either go make the purchases or order them online.
Make this cute mini cutting board with a FREE fall SVG file to display in your kitchen or on a farmhouse tiered tray! This Fall Cricut craft is super easy, so it’s also a great fall craft to make and sell!
Set the mood for Fall in your kitchen by making yourself a couple of cute Autumn coffee mugs. These adorable coffee mugs are a beginner Cricut project made using Dollar Store Mugs and the right vinyl. Getting three colors in one design is much easier than you think.
If you’re hosting a party and serving popcorn, you need these DIY Football Treat Bags! I made 3 different styles: a football, a playbook, and a 20-yard line. Instead of drawing each one by hand, I made them using my Cricut Explore Air™ 2 machine!
With Mother’s Day around the corner we thought it would be the perfect time to make our mom something featuring her favorite things: flowers! We know she’ll love these framed paper peony flowers, cut with our Cricut Maker.
Okay, fellow crafters, who loves glitter as much as I do!? As much as I love it, it can get very messy very fast if you’re not careful. That’s why I love glitter vinyl so much. You get all the sparkle and shine and none of the mess.
The inspirational coasters I made are great for gifting or keeping in your work space! The best part? These Infusible Ink™ coasters are simple to make – even for beginners! I used the tutorial on the Cricut help site, plus the little knowledge of the Cricut Joy I had.
