Cricut makers are what people often use when they do DIY projects. For people who do bullet journaling, this is a great, but expensive item, to splurge on. But did you know that you can make more out of it beyond just leisure projects?
One of the ways that you can make the most out of it is earning. In fact, even if you are not artistic, there are design tutorials on YouTube and Pinterest that you can follow to print out.
On this note, we will discuss five different tips for you to make the most out of your Cricut makers. Who knows if you can also earn from it yourself, right?
Use other materials like wood, scratch paper, or dried leaves.
When you first try a thing out, you don’t get to be the best at it right away. In fact, even people who have it naturally didn’t get it on the first try and continuously did in the long run. People just get to miss that one step in the stairs because that just seems to be how life goes. So, we highly suggest you test it out first on scratch materials.
If you do love the rustic theme, you can make wooden projects using Cricut, such as coasters, puzzles, bookmarks, wood signs, and more. It does have a bit of a learning curve, so take your time to practice.
Make use of every craft material you have left.
When you have finally learned how to do a thing or two from it, then you probably have started trying it out on sticker paper. Most people use a Cricut maker to help them decorate things they have, and this applies to people who do bullet journaling and other crafty stuff. However, there are more to things than that.
Sticker papers are expensive. That said, we suggest you make use of every inch of it. Regardless of how little, it can still print out a design.
Familiarize yourself with different cutting mats. They’re different.
Did you know there are different cutting mats for different materials and designs? Well, now you know. The blue light grip ones are for thinner materials such as bond papers and thin vinyl boards. Meanwhile, there is the pink fabric grip mat that you can use for crepe papers and fabrics in itself.
There are other colors for different uses as well, such as standard green grip and strong purple grip.
Know the different designs of the cuts.
There are different technicalities in a Cricut maker that you can make use of. In fact, there are some that you can just know through cheat sheets that we’ll share some of with you! To begin, there’s a slice that allows you to remove an overlapped area.
It is a cut that helps you remove a shape within another shape so that there will be space in the middle.
Sell on eBay.
We know there are already a lot of people who do this, but in case you haven’t heard of it yet, Cricut makers actually help you earn money! You can design your own sticker or copy one from tutorials and sell them at your desired price.
After all, it all depends on the quality of your material and the color of the ink that displays on the paper.
