Following our wonderful response to the competition to win a Cricut Maker, we have suggestions for using the Cricut Maker from our participants and thought we would share just some of them here:


  • cutting small, intricate holes with precision in your embroidery


  • creating intricate greetings, thank you and other cards


  • cutting intricate pre-felt shapes for inclusion in sculptural and larger felt artworks


  • creating mandalas


  • cutting designs from felt and fabric to use in Visible Mending


  • making your own stencils and stamps to use in felting, silk painting, and other textile artworks


  • incorporating cut-outs, both simple and intricate, into textile artworks


  • converting photos into designs and then using the Cricut Maker to cut them out


  • cutting handmade silk paper into shapes for use in your artworks


  • cut designs in felted paper lampshades to create patterns of light


  • creating very thin strips of handmade papers to then twist and braid


  • use in quilting and applique


  • using the kids’ hand puppet shadows to create vinyl decals to decorate their bedroom walls


  • use in English Paper Piecing


  • help with all things “wedding” or “party” – invitations, name places, table decorations, thank you cards ……..



It’s certainly a versatile instrument with which to create!
