*This I Got a Cricut! Here’s My First Cricut Projects post contains affiliate links
I was blessed to receive a Cricut from some of my kids for Christmas last year. Then in January, before I had much time to play with it, we all got sick with “the virus”. So I lost a couple of months of play time. I’ve been making up for it though!
Check out some of my first Cricut projects!
My very first project was decorating my mixer! Using the vinyl that I received as a gift, I put these white flowers on my mixer. I love it!
But then I thought it needed a little something something. lol So I bought some vinyl in a color that goes with my kitchen. And added some more decorations. Looks pretty good, I think. And it makes me smile when I see my mixer!
The 1st t-shirt I made was for my mother. My great nephew, her great grandson, was having a super hero birthday party, and every was supposed to come dressed as a supper hero. So I made her a Super Granny t-shirt. Complete with cape! It was during the making of this shirt when I discovered that using an iron to make t-shirts is hard!
The next shirt was for my anthropologist daughter. Skeletons, of course. lol I actually had to make this shirt twice. The first one, made with my iron, messed up. So I then bought a Cricut Press and made her another one. Ah, much better!
My husband bought a new welding helmet, but someone else in the shop had one just like it. So He asked me to put something on it so he could tell which one was his. Flames, of course!
Then, about a week before Easter, I finally made something for myself! And I wore it every time I left the house all week. lol Oh, for the record, I washed it by hand in the sink at night and hung it to dry. Lest you think I wore a dirty shirt all week. lol
My son that still lives at home requested a Star Wars shirt. I had to pay for this design, but it wasn’t too bad. Only $1.99. And he likes it. lol Young men can be so picky! lol
I had to order more black vinyl for his shirt. So I tried a different brand of heat transfer vinyl. It has high ratings on amazon. I worked great for this shirt, with no problems. And it’s a lot cheaper than Cricut supplies!
I made a mug, too, with permanent vinyl. But I forgot to take a picture before I gave it away!
Do you have a Cricut? What have been some of your favorite projects to make? Let me know! I’m on the look out for more things to make! lol
Here are a few of the supplies that I have used:
