Getting Ready For Easter With Cricut*

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.


Now that we’re into April, it’s all about getting up to Easter! This is a great excuse for some cute craft projects, and I thought I’d try out some of the different things I could make with my Cricut Maker!GettingReadyForEasterTo begin I had a relaxed evening after work, and checked out the Design Space, and found so many cute Easter Crafts available! As you can read in my first Cricut post, it is incredibly easy to choose your design, and set up your supplies to cut out the pieces. I saved a few ideas, and when I got a day off work, I sat down in the craft room, and created these fun projects in one evening! Which just shows how easy and quick it is to create fab crafts with the Cricut Maker! 

One project I really loved was this cute mini bunting! Ideal for decorating an easter basket, putting up on the wall (or as I’m using it, now it’s not being photographed on the wall) around the lid of a cake box!

 

 

I’ve shared the above images just to show HOW tidy the cuts are from the Cricut Maker, there is so little mess, it’s incredibly easy to make a lot of projects at the same time.

All I had to do then is use some double sided tape and glue to piece everything together, and I just used some tape on the reverse of the bunting to stick everything to the coordinating Ric Rac ribbon I found in my stash!Easter Bunting and CardOf course, it is no secret that I love making cards, and there are so many great designs on the Design Space! I loved this cute silhouette design, and just had to make it myself! There are SO many great card designs, it’s sure to keep me busy all year round!

Of course Easter isn’t Easter without some treats, and I found so many projects for gift boxes, baskets and treat packages!

I loved this cute bunny pillow box, and it cut out so beautifully! This is such a great style of gift box for so many things – even gift cards, if you wanted to give something in something more interesting than an envelope or card! All you need to cover the hole is a little rectangle of coordinating cardstock or clear plastic stuck to the inside before you seal the side edge!Easter Bunny Pillow BoxI really wanted to make a tag for this sweet jar we have in the kitchen, and in the images tab on the Design Space, I found this cute chick design! After cutting I glued the layered pieces, Added in some accents with coloured pens, and added some orange Ric Rac ribbon to tie it to the jar.

Instantly transforming a plain glass jar of sweets into something more seasonal! Easter Chick Gift Box and TagI also fell in love with this carrot design gift box on the design space! It really shows how cleanly the cricut cuts through cardstock, and can help you produce something unique and fun! It was so easy to piece together once cut out, and is a great Easter gift idea!
