I’ve been wanting one of these for a few years now and when the black Friday sales came around, the deal was too good to pass up (I saved $200!). I have been crafting like crazy since I got it. First I decorated my Cricut (with black cats of course).
I made this pretty bee and put it on my magnet board.
Made these monsters to decorate the gift box for my newphew (filled with craft supplies. I gave craft boxes to everyone. They all loved them, yay.)
I did the paper flowers I already posted. Then I also had to use my Cricut to make the swap gifts for my partners in the Little Good Things swap.
This first one is a shadowbox of Hogwarts. It was going to be a light box but I didn’t check the size of the led candle I bought in it before hand. At least it still looks cool. Took lots of trial and error to get things right.
My second partner liked Doctor Who and since I really wanted to do something mandala, I found this one and it was perfect. Very fiddly to weed and it took me 2.5 hours to complete!
I love the mandalas and wanted to do more, so I found this H and did it up as big as I could then put it on the side of my dresser.
And fresh off the mat, I found another one to do, this time a cat (there will be lots of cats, lol). This one took me…five…hours…to weed. I still like weeding. I find it a bit relaxing. This one is small though and was fiddly so I lost some parts of it (some swirls and dots in the face mostly). Since I was making this for myself, I’m not too worried and still love how it came out. This is on another floating frame like the Tardis one above.
My next project with these will probably be to finally embellish one of my paintings, which is the main reason I got the machine. I’m definitely going to be putting this Cricut to good use!
