Decorate Your Home and Embellish Everything In It With an Electronic Die Cutter (Cricut, Silhouette, etc.)
Electronic die cutting machines like the Cricut, the Silhouette, the Brother ScanNCut, and others, have a far wider range of uses than just cutting out paper elements for scrapbooking. Within the list of possible projects below, you’ll find many reasons to own the best die cutting machine, along with inspiration for future projects.
There are virtually no limits the the array of home decor accents you can create or embellish with a Cricut or similar electronic die cutter. In addition to cutting out an inspirational quote in vinyl and adhering it to a wall or to a signboard, you can also create templates from template material to make your own painting stencils.
Using iron-on transfer material, you can create a design or a quote to add to pillows, curtains, etc.
Leather material (depending on the thickness) can be cut into a variety of shapes, such as a southwestern-style design, which can be sewn onto a homespun rug and turned into a wall hanging.
A three-dimensional wall decoration can be created by cutting out dimensional paper flowers of varying styles and sizes, and gluing them to a foam core board that has been framed. It will look like a garden of blossoms are exploding from the frame!
You can go crazy with any theme using an electronic die cutter. If you’re in a hurry or don’t like creating your own designs, you can purchase designs, such as Disney characters, to create an entire themed party. From banners, place cards, invitations, and signs for the party, to cupcake stands, cupcake wrappers, gift boxes, party favors, and more, you’ll be able to flood your child’s party with theme-related items and decor.
For those with a more creative spirit, you can use the software that comes with the Cricut to design your own themes, or with a Silhouette you can enjoy downloading the many free files available online in a variety of formats, including SVG.
Enhance Your Fashion
You can add accents and embellishments to your clothing. Whether it’s adding chic modern accents to fashionable clothing using sparkly iron-on transfer fabric, or adding some fabric flowers or machine-cut lace fabric to enhance a thrift store find, you can elevate your fashion sense to the next level using an electronic die cutting machine.
Organize Your Home
While a die cutting machine can make elegant labels for your shelves, bins, etc., that’s not all it can do to organize your home.
You can create chore charts, calendars, menu boards, and even a variety of aids for homeschooling. You can also create labeled fabric pockets to mount on the wall to hold folders for corralling papers. And if you own a Cricut Explore, it has the capability to draw as well, so you can use a special Cricut marker to add handwritten elements.
With an electronic die cutting machine, the list of creative projects you can make is endless. Your home and your life will never look the same!
