One of my favorite things in my craft room is my Cricut Maker. There is so much that I can do with it, everything from cutting vinyl, iron on, and cardstock, to cutting delicate materials like fabric and tissue paper, or thick materials like chipboard and balsa wood. There are even tools to engrave, deboss, perforate, score, and more.

Today I am going to share a few of the most popular projects I have shared that were made with my Cricut Maker.

Top 5 Cricut Maker Projects

Chipboard Christmas Ornaments with Gift Boxes

This post may be a little weird to be sharing in February since it is a post for a Christmas Ornament, but in it I share all about some of the different Cricut Maker tools and how they can be used. The ornament itself is made using the knife blade to cut chipboard (probably my favorite material to cut with the knife blade). The gift boxes use the fine point blade for cutting and the scoring wheels for scoring. The bow on the white box is cut out of felt using the rotary blade. I love the wide range of materials you can cut with the Cricut Maker

Fabric Covered Cork Board with Felt Flowers

Like the bow in the last project this one also uses the rotary blade` to cut felt, this time to make a 3D felt flower. I took a plain cork board and painted the frame, added fabric to the cork using Mod Podge, then added a big felt flower to the corner to finish it off.

All You Need is Love Shirt

My next project is one that does not specifically require the Cricut Maker, it could also be made on a Cricut Explore machine, since it uses iron on which can be cut on any of the machines. But I did want to highlight something unique about this project versus the others on this list. I think that sometimes people think they can only cut things that are available through Design Space, but you can actually upload any image you want. You can purchase SVG files to upload and cut, find free ones online, or even create your own, which is what I did with this one. I drew the design on my iPad, uploaded it to Design Space, cut it out and pressed it onto a shirt. It is pretty cool to see a design that you drew on a t-shirt and the process is really easy. 

Create Your Own Superhero Costumes

Like the first project I shared this one uses a variety of materials and blades. I used the rotary blade to cut felt into masks and cuffs, and then added iron on to some of them for some extra sparkle and shine, I also used iron on to decorate t-shirts and capes to complete their costumes. My kids and and I had a lot of fun creating their own superheroes. Even though I made these at Halloween time they can be fun for dressing up any time of the year. My daughter still loves to dress up as Galaxy Girl. 

Making a Quilt with the Cricut Maker

When I first heard about the Cricut Maker probably the number one thing I was excited about was the ability to cut fabric with the rotary blade. There are full quilt designs available in Design Space, like this Big Star Throw Quilt that I made. There are also quilt blocks, different sizes of squares, half square triangle, and hexagons that you could use to create your own quilt design. And you aren't limited to quilts, there are lots of fabric projects you can cut out with the maker, stuffed animals, bags, baby and doll clothes, and more.
