It’s time for another in-depth look at the Cricut Explore. I talked a little about this in my last post, What is the Cricut Explore Machine and What Does it Do?, but today I wanted to look more closely at the incredible number of ways you can use this machine for different applications. I’m also going to share a set of Camping Pennants I designed for my twin boys’ second birthday party!

To explain all the different projects you can make, I think it’s best to break them out by category, and then give you some ideas each category. For all of these ideas, you can design them yourself in a design program like Illustrator, create unique designs directly in the Cricut Design Space, upload clip art (like JPGs or PNGs) and turn them into cuttable files, or use one of the many, many files from the Cricut Image Library.
Paper frames, letters, and shapes, and “handwritten” text and drawings.
Parties and Weddings:
Addressing invitations, cards, envelope liners, paper flowers, pennants, bunting, and garlands, decorations, pinwheels, photo booth props, place cards, food labels, cupcake and cake toppers, games, party cups, customized table linens, favors, t-shirts, signage, gift tags, and table numbers.
As I find more Cricut Explore project ideas, I’ll be sure to come back and update this list. Have something I missed? Leave your ideas in the comments!
Cut Paper Camping Pennants
One of my favorite things to make using my Cricut is intricately cut paper designs. I am always blown away at the accuracy with which the Cricut cuts all materials, but paper in particular. For the boys’ camping birthday party, I designed this set of paper pennants featuring all sorts of fun icons from camping life. They are available in my SVG shop and are on sale for the next three months! You can also buy the individual pennants in case you are having…a binoculars party? Ha!
I used a pearlescent paper to cut out a set for the party — I’m sure I’ll cut several more before the party in May. Seriously, though — isn’t this detail impressive? Those thin, thin lines on the compass are cut with total precision.
The Cricut Explore never ceases to amaze me!
