This morning Cricut had crafting and DIY enthusiasts on the edge of their seats awaiting a big new announcement from the brand. What was revealed in an Apple-style keynote streamed live on their Facebook page was a revolutionary new Cricut machine that can now cut fabric and sewing patterns straight from your computer. Self-titled ‘the ultimate smart cutting machine’, this is a huge and exciting advancement for Cricut and its users who have been asking for sewing related capabilities for years.
Did you guys get crafty for this year’s Super Bowl? I decided to treat myself over the Christmas period and splurged on a Cricut Explore! So far it has been amazing, so easy to use and the possibilities are endless. Recently I’ve been creating my own SVG files through Illustrator and importing them in to the Cricut Design Software however I decided to try out a couple of Cricut’s featured projects for our friend’s Super Bowl party. These Football Mason Jars and Favor Boxes were so quick and simple to make (supplies – mason jars, white vinyl, brown cardboard and a spot of glue), once ready we just filled up the jars with a sweet tea vodka cocktail and the boxes with popcorn for some tasty half time treats!
