5 Things You need to know about your Cricut 

The Cricut machine is a must-have when you are a crafter that works with vinyl! From adding vinyl to clothes or creating stencils for major projects, Cricut has you covered. I think it is safe to say that most crafters are learning more and more with what they can do with this them! Below are 5 things you need to know about your Cricut, and let me tell you that if you already own a Cricut, this is still a must-read!

1. Print wallpaper with your Cricut

If you have recently moved into a new house or looking for a little way to spice up your office, vinyl print wallpaper is for you! With this, you can make a whole custom wall with your Cricut that no one else probably has!

Another great thing about vinyl wallpaper is you can change it at a moment’s notice! When picking out wallpaper, most of the time, you have to commit to a design that is going to be in your house for over 10 years! With vinyl, you can remove your wallpaper at a moment notice, and it is easier too! You can even print out the vinyl and tape it to the wall to see if you like it there or not!

Tip:
  Cricut Joy can cut up to 20 feet continuously. This is amazing if you are creating a long strip of vinyl wallpaper.
To do this project, you will need:
  • Cricut machine
  • Removable vinyl*
  • Transfer tape
  • Weeding and scraper tool (optional)
  • Tape measure (optional)

2. Make stencils

I am pretty sure that you already know that you can make stencils to draw on paper, but did you ever think outside of that box? There are so many projects you can make with the idea of stencils.  One of them being a concrete rug for the outdoors.

Never heard of it? This project is mainly about spicing up your back yard! By making a vinyl stencil, you can paint a concrete pattern, making it look as if you have a rug outside! Creating one square and repeating the pattern makes the look of a rug!
Tip: make sure that you have a clean concrete surface to work on. If it isn’t clear, the paint will not stick, and it will flake off! We really wouldn’t want that.
To do this project, you will need:
  • Cricut machine
  • Concrete paint in the color you desire
  • Vinyl for stencil
  • Concrete cleaner or etching primer
  • Painter’s tape
  • Paint tray
  • Polyurethane for paint sealant
  • Stencil brush (multiple sizes)
  • Paint roller with outdoor brushes
  • Outdoor paintbrush
