When I started using the Cricut I was a little intimidated. But with these Cricut Vinyl Ideas For Beginners, you don’t have to be. They’re so simple, easy and fun, you’ll be weeding and ironing on in no time!
No jokes, from home decor to awesome gift ideas, these fun projects are so easy, you could make them all without breaking a sweat.
One of the best ways to learn how to use your Cricut machine is to just jump right in. And, if you’re like me, you learn best by doing. So, I just went through and found the best Cricut beginner tutorials to scope out the ones that really get you doing rather than just baby-footing.
I mean, I get it that you want to ease into it. I certainly want to do that. But like you want to take appropriate-sized steps, right? Like, don’t ease me into Cricut vinyl projects with some mamby-pamby one-piece business.
No, I want some designs I’ll be really proud of. Something that will keep me motivated to make the next thing.
Plus, frankly, I want to make something COOL if it’s my first time, right?! Like for real–why bother breaking out the new crafting machine if the project won’t be awesome?!
So, basically, I found the best of the best, from both the angle of “what’s easiest” and “what’s going to be the coolest.”
So, grab your computer or iPad and open Cricut Design Space, because we’re about to get crafty!
