10 Super Simple Projects You Can Make With Your Cricut Maker

3D Pop Up Box Card

This box card is such a simple project to make, but it looks really cool! All you need is a single 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of card stock for the card base and a couple of coordinating card stock colors for the decorations.

The card base is scored with the scoring wheel so that it folds flat and will fit in a standard card envelope, but when you open it up, it pops up into a 3D box! You can change the text inside to say anything you want, and make it your own with your own colors of card stock.

Clear Party Favor Boxes

I love using my Cricut Maker to cut foil acetate; it slices right through it like butter! And the scoring wheel creates clean lines so you get crisp edges for a perfect 3D polygon box. They make great party favor boxes that are super classy and elegant — use them for weddings or parties!

Make Your Own Foam Stamps

My daughter loves playing with stamps, but sometimes we can’t find the types of stamps she wants. Luckily, with a Cricut Maker we can make our own. It’s so easy to do she can basically do the whole project by herself, and she’s only 4! The knife blade is perfect for cutting through thick foam, even with intricate curves and details.

Paper Flower Shadow Box Monogram

My favorite thing about this project is that it’s so easy to customize for anyone or any decor: just pick a few coordinating colors of cardstock, send the design to your Maker, and start making flowers! There are five different 3D flower options and 3 different leaf shapes, so you can mix and match however you want.

Your Cricut Maker can handle even the most intricate details, so it will make quick work of cutting out the flowers. Just let it run in the background while you fold up the ones the Cricut has already cut and you’ll have enough to make your own monogram in no time!

DIY Matching Family Christmas Pajamas

Matching Christmas pajamas is a tradition in our family. Some years I buy them, and some years I make them — when I made them last year, my Cricut Maker came to the rescue! The rotary blade was perfect for cutting the fabric in intricate shapes, and it even cuts through fabric with a fusible iron-on backing in one pass!
