So you’ve bought a Cricut, you’ve got it out of the box and now you want to start making some money — OR maybe you’re thinking about getting a Cricut to make a little side cash, so how can you achieve this?
I think a lot of people are asking the question, “Just how can I make money with my Cricut?”
Well I have done it, and I am here to tell you that it is totally possible. I know people that have bought a Cricut and within a month of opening box they have made some money.
In this post, I am going to share some tips and suggestions on how you can make money using your Cricut.

The ways to make money with your Cricut are endless. The products you can make and design are only limited by your imagination.
When I first bought my Cricut, I already had a business in hand. I was making signs but I was turning away customers who wanted signs with big long phrases and tiny print because I knew there was no way I could hand paint all that and in the price range they wanted.
So I headed to Google and a quick Google search led me to the world of Cricut. I bought my first machine with money that I borrowed from my grandfather and was able to really increase the inventory of signs that I was able to offer.
Before the Cricut, I would have to scour the dollar stores and crafts stores to find cut outs and letters to make my signs or hand paint. This was not time effective at all. Once, I got the Cricut, that’s when my business really boomed!
This was the first sign that I made for a customer with my Cricut.
And it was actually the sign that pushed me to look for the Cricut.
Once I had this wonderful machine, I started making all kinds of things — mugs, t-shirts and one of my favourite things to make was coasters.
Fast forward, almost 6 years to the present day and even though. I am not doing custom creations, I still use my Cricut to make money.
We will get more into that a bit later, but here are just some other ways you can use Cricut machines and tools to make money:
Yes, jewelry. Your Cricut machine can actually make jewelry. You can get the Cricut machine to cut a variety of materials — leather, basswood, thin plastics etc AND if you have the Maker, you can even engrave!
This is a big one. People love t-shirts. You can pretty much put whatever you want on a t-shirt but not only that now with Cricut’s Infusible Ink, you can actually infuse ink into your shirts. You can also do Iron On as well, too. I love either or and both are great options for any business.
Speaking of Infusible Ink, I think it needs it’s own point. You can use Infusible ink on so many different materials, t-shirt, coasters, bags etc. You could make so many different products to sell using just Infusible Ink. It really is a phenomenal addition to the Cricut line up of tools and materials.
In fact, if you are looking to get started with Infusible Ink, you should check out my YouTube channel. There are tons of great videos on how to use it!
Signs and Decor
This is a broad category and you are really only limited by your imagination, but you can use your Cricut to make signs and home decor that you can sell on Etsy, Marketplace or even your own website. People love to decorate their homes and in fact, they love to throw in a handmade piece here and there. Get creative and put your own style and personality into your creations. People love it!
At the end of the day, you really are only limited by your imagination. With Cricut’s incredible line up of tools and materials — the sky really is the limit.
I don’t create now for resale, instead I have turned my passion into creating and working with the Cricut into a business where I help other people discover the world of Cricut. It’s truly incredible to share your passion with the world and inspire others.
I hope that if you have been on the fence about getting a Cricut, you will dive right in! The “water’s” fine and the people “swimming” are more than happy to help you out if you need it 😉
