This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cricut. As always, all opinions are my own.
When I received my Cricut Maker earlier this year I was so excited! It was the one thing I had on my wish list for what seems like forever! The Cricut will definitely make an amazing gift this holiday season, there are endless crafting and gifting possibilities that come with owning your own machine as well!
If a Cricut isn’t on your wish list yet I’m going to give you 5 reasons why I love my Cricut and why I think it should be at the top of your holiday wish list!
First, What is a Cricut?
A Cricut is a die-cutting machine that allows you to cut custom designs on paper, vinyl, fabric, felt and much much more. It’s the perfect machine for any crafter, beginner or experienced! The most popular machines are the Maker, Explore Air 2 and the Joy.
5 Reasons Why A Cricut Should Be On Your Wish List
1. Easy to Use and Setup!
The setup out of the box is quick and simple. I was a little overwhelmed when I received mine because I had no idea what to expect. I was shocked to find myself up and cutting within an hour after setting it up! Simply get it out of the box, plug it in, connect your computer and pull up Design Space.
2. Cricut Blanks!
A “blank” is a name for an item that you can customize using material cut on your Cricut. There are a variety of blank bags you can use with your Cricut. Wine, Cosmetic and Tote Bags are both fun and functional! Another one of my favorite blanks are Coasters, they come in round or square and are so easy to personalize with Infusible Ink! Which brings me to my next reason…
3. Infusible Ink
I am absolutely obsessed with Cricut’s infusible ink. Infusible ink is basically an ink transfer product. The transfer sheets are made of a dry ink product, and when high heat is applied, the ink is actually transferred into (not onto) the base material. It comes in so many different colors and designs. It is so easy to use and definitely one of my favorite ways to use my Cricut!
4. Easy DIY Christmas Gifts
There are so many options when it comes to projects you can make. The Cricut makes DIY Christmas gifts so easy. You can either keep them for yourself or gift them to, family, teachers, friends, secret Santa, etc. Everyone loves personalized, handmade gifts for Christmas, I will talk more in my next post about specific gifts you can make with your Cricut!
5. EasyPress 2
I love my EasyPress 2. It is much better than an Iron and way faster than an iron. I have the 9″ x 9″ size which is ideal for basic T-shirts, tote bags, pillows, aprons, and more. The EasyPress 2 provides professional heat-transfer results without the guesswork! It is compatible with all Infusible Ink products too! Right now they all are on sale! Go check them out here!
There are a few of my favorite reasons why I love my Cricut and why it would make a great gift this holiday season! It’s not too late to add one and/or any of these accessories to your wish list!
