The coolest thing about the Cricut Maker is the versatility that comes with its Adaptive Tool System! The Adaptive Tool System controls your tools to allow it to cut from side-to-side, move up and down, and lift and turn, so that you can cut more materials on the Maker with more pressure than ever before. This tool system allows you to use various blades and tools to create a myriad of different projects.
For this Wood Monogram Letter, we used the Knife Blade along with Basswood to create a pretty gift idea that’s perfect for baby showers, bridal showers, birthdays, and more! The felt flowers were created with the Rotary Blade, and they are super easy to make!
The Rotary Blade is an incredible tool that is included in the box with your Cricut Maker purchase. This versatile blade can cut a wide variety of fabrics from delicate silk to heavyweight denim and leather. It’s also perfect for cutting thin and delicate materials like the crepe paper that we used to create this gorgeous Crepe Paper Flower Wreath!
Chipboard is an awesome material to work with, and the Knife Blade makes easy work of cutting it with precision! We made this adorable Chipboard Birdhouse Box for Valentine’s Day, but it’s cute enough to display any day of the year!
If you haven’t tried Infusible Ink yet, you’re missing out! This innovative new product actually infuses with your fabric base (shirts, totes, and more!) to become a part of the fabric. It’s SO cool, and it works wonderfully with your Cricut Maker and the Fine-Point Blade!
Infusible Ink works best on fabrics that have a high Polyester content (at least 80%+), so it’s awesome on Polyester fleece blankets. I used this silver polka dotted blanket and our FREE SVG file to make this fun Harry Potter Marathon Blanket as a holiday gift for one of my friends!
These Foil Gift Card Holders can also double as gift boxes for small flat gifts (I used one to gift a pair of earrings, and it was a huge hit!), and they are super duper quick and easy to make using the new Maker tools!
Iron-on is my #1 favorite material to work with with my Cricut Maker. There are SO many different types of iron-on, but Foil Iron-on and Holographic Iron-on are at the top of my list. Both add sparkle and shimmer to your projects for maximum effect and minimal effort! Bonus: iron-on works on TONS of different surfaces and bases!
These Watercolor Picture Frames make a gorgeous gift idea, and you can whip them up in under 30 minutes!
Here’s another chipboard project that’s simple to make and can help organize your work space! Use the Maker and the Knife Blade to quickly assemble these handy custom DIY Desk Organizers in any size, color, and style to match your office and suit your needs!
Have I mentioned how much I love working with chipboard? 😂 These chipboard and adhesive vinyl rainbow charms added the perfect finishing touch to our cute Party Favor Bags!
