Hello friends! Ready to see some amazing and super easy projects I made with my Cricut Mini? Seriously, these were all done in just a few minutes.

This was my very first project, and let’s just say my kids are already tired of me shoving it in their  faces to show it off. Yeah, I am quite proud of myself.

Instead of buying an entire cartridge, Cricut let’s you purchase tons single patterns for under a dollar. I spent less than two dollars on the patterns below, and it was such a good investment for how many Christmas cards I needed to make! Plus I love that I can pick and choose my own papers. Hello gray and turquoise!

I made a crapload of glitter ornaments. Turns out Cricut has Cut It Free For a Week program where every week they offer different patterns that you can use for no charge. Last week it was snowflakes, and I cannot believe how cute they turned out! (Go HERE to see what is free this week!)

I also made a ton of Christmas gift tags with my Cricut Mini. It was really easy to create a whole sheet of patterns with the free Cricut Craft Room Software. I love how when using the software I can save my designs and cut them again and again. 

I bought a ton of different papers to try, and the glitter paper I picked up was really thick. I was worried the Cricut Mini wouldn’t cut all the way through the paper, but it did a fabulous job!

If you are a first timer like me with die-cut machines, the Cricut Mini seems to be fabulous fit!  I can’t wait to play with it more, and share what I make.

Thanks Cricut for hooking me up with a Cricut Mini! To learn more about Cricut products, visit them online HERE.
