Ohhh Cricut. How I love thee so.
With the holidays fast approaching, I thought it would be a good idea to highlight just what exactly you can make with a Cricut.
With Christmas breathing down our necks, I am sure there are a lot of you out there who might just wake up Christmas morning to find a rectangle-shaped wrapped box under your tree. You might even squeeze your eyes real tight, cross your fingers and pray that someone special fulfilled your wish and bought you a Cricut Maker.
But purchasing or receiving a Cricut Maker is just the beginning. Once you unwrap or bring home this beauty machine, you have to know what to do with it right?

In today’s post, I am going to highlight 5 different types of projects that you can make with a Cricut Maker.
Guys, this is just the tip of the iceberg, though. I would honestly take me years to write a post that contains every single thing you can make with a Cricut Maker. So today, we will just start with five.
Let’s jump right in!
No. 1 – Iron-On Projects
Ok so this is a pretty broad one, but Cricut sells a product called Iron On. It’s like a flexible vinyl material that you use in conjunction with their EasyPress. You heat it up on top of materials like fabric and it sticks to it.
Pictured above are some tea towels that I made with Cricut Iron On. Pretty neat, right!? You can make your own t-shirts, hats — you can even press Iron On onto shoes.
No. 2 – Cards and Party supplies
With Cricut’s overflowing abundance of cardstock and papers you can make your own greeting cards and decor for parties. Everything from banners to cake toppers.
Since we are talking about cake. This picture above, I made not only the“hooray” using cardstock and my Cricut Maker but I also made the felt flowers, too!
No. 3 – Signs and Home Decor
This is another broad category but seriously the amount of home decor and signs you can make are endless. You can use vinyl on wood, you can use glitter Iron On on canvas signs like pictured above here — and once you creativity starts flowing it’s next to impossible to shut it off but that’s where the Maker comes in to help you bring your visions to life.
No. 4 – Leather Accessories
A super fun and versatile material you can cut with your Maker is leather — both genuine and faux. You can make leather projects for all sorts of different occasions or even just for yourself. I made these leather earrings and I also used a bit of Buffalo Plaid Iron On to add just a bit of pizazz.
No. 5 – Infusible Ink Projects
I decided to save the best for last. I am seriously all about the Infusible Inks right now. The colours, the possibilities and it’s so easy!
Rather than go on and on about it, though — I made a video tutorial so you can see the Infusible Inks in action. Check it out!
