Right now in my life, I am doing EVERYTHING baby! My niece just had her first child, and I have a grandbaby on the way.
So, it totally made sense to make these baby charms for these beaded baby bracelets.
Just figured while I'm at it I would show you how to make charms using the Cricut engraving tip.
I knew that the new Cricut Quick swap tools would be a total game-changer as soon as I heard about them!
I used the debossing tip and the perforation tool both in this Gift Box Tutorial.
How To Make Charms Using The Cricut Engraving Tip
I can't wait to use the debossing tool for some amazing invitations. And I really need to dream up more stuff to use the perforation blade on.
I do have a confession, when I grabbed these charms, I had no idea what I was doing, but I decided I was just going to go for it!
I tend to march to the beat of my own drum and sometimes forget to read instructions.
But That's a plus for you because, through my errors, you will learn how to make charms without making any mistakes, right!?
What Do I Engrave With The Cricut Maker Engraving Tip?
There are so many things that I still want to try because there are so many things that you can actually engrave with this new Cricut Engraving tool.
Just to name a few you can engrave
- Transparency Film
- Kraft Board
- Aluminum Foil
This is just to name a few, there is quite a variety of materials not listed! I plan on doing something with each 1-1!
What Do I Need To Engrave With My Cricut?
You can't just use any Cricut to engrave, you need the Cricut Maker. You will also need.
This was a really fun and easy project if you are already a seasoned Cricut user.
Can I Use The Cricut Maker Tools With The Cricut Explore Family?
Short answer no. Cricut maker tools are specifically made for the maker machine, the Cricut maker has an adaptive tool system that tells the machine if it is the right tool or not.
So if you are supposed to be using a debossing tip and you don't have it in, the machine won't cut. That means less screw-ups and way less waste.
You can get the scoring wheel, debossing tip, wavy blade and all of the others with or without the quickswap housing.
Use Cricut design space with any of the tools to make amazing and unique designs to sell or give as gifts.
