Let’s start with these super fun kids craft aprons!  Perfect for those summer finger painting sessions and more!

My next Dollar Tree filler idea are these fun bunny glasses with masks.

No more wondering which pair belongs to which grandchild.  Thanks Cricut!

Along that line of thinking, how about a couple of personalized cups.  These are also from the Dollar Tree and the perfect size for Ace and Evie

Cricut Bunny Eggs / Cutting Felt with the Cricut

bunny edgg-17

Good morning and welcome to another Cricut project.  Today, we are using our Cricut to cut felt to create these adorable Easter Egg Bunnies.  Aren’t they the cutest?

bunny edgg-19

I mean c’mon, what’s cuter than 3 little bunny bums?

bunny edgg-12

They are made from Dollar Tree Plastic Eggs.  I filled them with candy.  You can open and close them without disturbing the bunny, which means you can use them as part of your Easter Decor or for baskets year after year.

I created all of the patterns for the felt pieceings in Cricut Design Space.  You can find a link to the file in the video description.

Watch the tutorial to find out how these cute little guys came together.

Masculine Gift Set with the Cricut

flask set-1

Have I mentioned my son is getting married?  He is.  Be prepared for lots and lots of wedding projects in the near future.  This fun little set is how he is asking his friends to be groomsmen and best men.

I designed my template for the flasks and for the shot glasses right in Design Space.  I have a separate tutorial on etching the shot glasses, you can find it here.

flask set-7

In this tutorial we are focusing on the flask and the box.  I think the box takes it from ordinary to extraordinary.  I have a another tutorial coming soon in which we will finish the box to take it to the next level.

I can’t wait to show you how this came together.  I’ve got a step by step tutorial so you can make a gift set for your next anniversary, wedding, birthday, or even Valentines!

Toiletry Travel Kit with Cricut

I am excited to say I am going on a “girls’ trip” soon!  I thought it was time to add a little cuteness factor to my travel bag.  I used Cricut Premium Vinyl and my Cricut Maker to make this fun little bag.

You can absolutely use the Cricut Explore to make this as well.  I started with a blank toiletry kit like this one and used my Design Space File.   This is a great beginner project for every Cricut user.

I will walk you through every step of the way in the detailed, step-by-step tutorial below.

NEW – Cricut Bowl Koozies!

Hello there!  It’s been awhile.  I hope you enjoyed the holidays with friends and family.  I sure did!  We have been non-stop since Thanksgiving.  I took a little break in December so that I could enjoy some family time.

Today, however, I had to get back to Cricuting.  I have two new, fun patterns for you to try!

The Scallop and Round Bowl Koozie / Cozy (which do you say?)

rounded-koozie-1

They are made very much like my original bowl koozie, but the one on the left has a round edge and the one on the right has a scallop edge.

Here is a step by step tutorial for you and don’t forget to grab the free Design Space Files here:  SCALLOP KOOZIE and ROUND KOOZIE.  If you don’t have a Cricut Maker, but you have an Explore, go ahead and cut out the patterns in cardstock and then just use that at a pattern to hand cut the fabric.

 

How to Create Cut Files from Drawings

Did you know you can use your very own handmade drawings to create cut files you can cut with your Cricut?

IMG_9719

I draw this “shop girl” on my Ipad and changed her into a cut file which I was then able to cut out in Cricut Iron On.  I used my EasyPress to make this adorable one of a kind tote bag!  Fun, huh!

IMG_9675 2

I did the same thing with this little cutie patootie!  She will look so cute on Evie’s PJ set.

You don’t need to know how to draw, really.  I found an image online and used that for inspiration to redraw and create this one.

IMG_574AD5E67524-1

This little lady I did draw freehand, and let me just say… I can’t draw, but the app makes it possible to draw, erase, draw it again…. erase it again… and so on.  Believe me, I did plenty of both!

How fun would it be to have your kids create a drawing, import it into Cricut Design Space, and then iron the design onto a cute tote bag for grandma?  I would love to receive a gift like that.  Wouldn’t your kids think it awesome to sport a shirt with their very own creation?

So, are you ready for a tutorial?  I cannot wait to see what you make!

Rae Dunn Inspired Jewelry Dishes

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today, I have another quick and easy gift idea for you.  How about a set of Rae Dunn Inspired Jewelry Dishes?

Ring dish-1-2

Pretty cute, don’t you think?  They are amazingly easy and very inexpensive.  I made this set for under $8.

Ring dish-7

I tried a set in black as well for a more authentic “Rae Dunn” look.  I think they would make fantastic bridesmaid gifts, bridal shower gifts, stocking stuffers, birthday gifts or even a just because gift.

Ring dish-2

You could add a name, a monogram, a favorite sports team logo, a short poem, or any other  image you can cut out in vinyl.  Every girl (and guy) needs a place to put their bling, small personal items and whatnots.  I especially like the one with the wedding date… no more forgetting the anniversary, right?!  How about adding a pair of earings and using the bowl as the gift bag.. just add a little ribbon and WOWZA, you just stepped it up a notch.

Ring dish-9

In the video I show you a really easy way to add this gold trim around the bowl as well as a few polka dots.  Polka dots make everything better!

My friend, Teri, and I recorded this live in our Urban Makers Facebook Group, you’ll here her in the video.  I uploaded it to youtube afterward, so it’s no longer live, but you still get to join in the fun!

Cricut EasyPress Insulated Lunch Tote

Fruit Tote-1Well hello there!  I am back with a QUICK, EASY summer project using your Cricut EasyPress and an insulated lunch tote from the Target Dollar Spot.  I picked up this really cute, striped lunch bag and floral can kooze in the Target Dollar Spot earlier today.  They had a few difference styles, but these were “my colors”…. and so.. they jumped in my cart…(darn you, Target Dollar Spot!)

As soon as I got home, I knew I needed to find a super cute summer saying to add a little Cricut iron on to make it uniquely mine.  LoveSVG had just what I needed and it was FREE.  You can find the design I used here.

Applying iron on to a coated polyester (feels like plastic) material can be a bit tricky, butuntitled-1

a few easy to follow steps and you’ll be off making your own personalized lunch totes in no time!  Products used are listed at the bottom of this post.

Wouldn’t this be a fun teacher’s gift or great to throw in the tote for an afternoon trip to the park with the kiddos?

Smokin Hot Father’s Day Grill Gift Set with Cricut & EasyPress

Fathers Day Grill Gift-1I am back with another Father’s Day Gift project for you!  I don’t know about your special guy, but mine loves to grill and new tools are a staple every summer.  Fathers Day Grill Gift-7

Get him all set up with a new Apron, Towel and personalized tools.  I loaded it all on a grill pan for a perfect presentation.

Fathers Day Grill Gift-5

I created the design in Cricut Design Space (You can grab a copy here).  You can personalize it any way you like.  Add a name in place of Dad, change it to Grandpa, or even MOM… Moms grill, too!

I used Cricut Premium Vinyl, Cricut Iron On and the Cricut EasyPress  and EasyPress Mat to personalize all of the items that I purchased at Walmart.

Ready for the tutorial?

Father’s Day Clock with the Cricut

clock

Father’s Day is just around the corner!  I can’t believe it’s almost June 17th, already!  Haven’t gotten dad the perfect gift yet?  Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.

Clock-5

This little gem is a DIY, custom made for your special guy by you!  All you need is a $3.97 clock from Walmart  (they come in White, Black, Red, Silver and Gold), Cricut Premium Vinyl, a piece of cardstock, and your Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore.

You can see in the top photo I added a little extra touch with the red stripes.  I think they go a long way to adding just that something to make it pop.  You could add a personalized name, add stars for the numbers, add a logo for your business, you name it… the sky is the limit!  How about a personalized clock for the kids room?

You know I have a step by step tutorial for you!  You can grab my Design Space file here or start from stratch and make your own!  Don’t forget to add the hole in the middle if you start from scratch, my file already has it in there for you.  Use Code LORRIE and save 10% and get free shipping on any accessories/cutting materials (Including this Premium Vinyl)!  Below is the video and a list of materials used.
