The ultimate Cricut how-to book that covers everything you need to know to purchase a Cricut and use it like a pro!
Are you new to Cricut crafting? Returning after a hiatus and desperate for a refresher? Perhaps you're an old pro looking for brand-new ideas, tips, and tricks for your crafts? Look no further than The Unofficial Book of Cricut Crafts.
Throughout the more than 300 pages of this book, author Crystal Allen will not only present you with craft ideas that embrace every awesome element of this popular cutting machine, but, perhaps most importantly, she'll start you at the very beginning of your Cricut journey with loads of information about the different Cricut machines (Cricut Explore Air 2, Cricut Maker, and Cricut Joy) so you can determine which is best for you before you buy.
After you unbox your Cricut and have a general understanding of the parts of your machine, Crystal will teach you how to use Cricut Design Space and get images from Cricut Access, and then you'll be presented with projects that use the most popular materials your Cricut can cut. These include fabric (cotton, felt, and fleece); basswood and chipboard; leather; vinyl; paper; and heat transfer vinyl. Crystal even tackles infusible ink!
Projects meant to inspire you will include step-by-step instructions and photos. They include:
• Leather key chain for Mom
• Rag quilt
• 20-minute makeup bags
• Planner stickers
• Emoji stress balls
• Personalized file folders
• DIY etched glass casserole dishes
• "Color Me In" zipped pouches
• No-sew hoodies
• Inspirational signs for your home
• And more!
The Unofficial Book of Cricut Crafts is perfect for the first-time Cricut user, the small business owner who has been using Cricut for years, and everyone in between!
