Using a Cutter Machine in My Arts’n’Crafts Projects

Why I Needed A Cricut Machine?

If you’re like most crafty moms, you do a lot of arts and crafts with your little ones. Your little ones have fun doing them and it keeps them busy.

A Cricut Cutting Machine is an ideal tool to keep on hand for cutting out shapes to give to little ones to glue onto other paper or to make gift cards with.

Another great idea is to use the Cricut to cut out trees, snowflakes, and other Holiday shapes and then decorate them for the Christmas tree.

Shapes can also be decorated and strung together for garland in and around the house. It’s great fun to use a Cricut machine and kids will enjoy watching the machine work. Just make sure that kids know not to put fingers in the machine.
