If you have a Cricut Machine, you have a world of possibilities at your fingertips! I love my Cricut Maker and use it nearly every single day. Customize everything, make handmade gifts, cut paper, etch acrylic, create stencils, engrave, cut chipboard and bass wood! 

So many options. Plus, here's some great posts I wrote up about turning your Cricut into a money making side hustle:

Gift #1: Felix Felicis Liquid Luck Mug

Supplies Needed:



Gift #1: Felix Felicis Liquid Luck Mug Supplies Needed: Sublimation Mug Cricut Infusible Ink Silicone Mug Wrap Cricut Brayer Cricut Cutting Machine/mat Cricut Heat Resistant Tape Oven

Step 1: Cutting Infusible Ink

Begin by uploading the png file below (right click to save off) to Cricut Design Space. Then scale it to the right size for your mug. I did 3 inches wide. Then cut 2 out of the Infusible Ink Transfer of your choice.

Step 1: Cutting Infusible Ink Begin by uploading the png file below (right click to save off) to Cricut Design Space. Then scale it to the right size for your mug. I did 3 inches wide. Then cut 2 out of the Infusible Ink Transfer of your choice.

Sublimation mugs are specially coated so that the ink will seamlessly transfer. The ones I'm using are 15 ounces and have an oversized handle, which I love.

Step 2: Weed Infusible Ink

Now weed the negative space of the Infusible Ink. Don't use the standard Cricut hook tool. Instead, peel it off like a paper sticker. Don't over touch the transfer or it will mess up the ink.

Step 3: Place on Mug

Use the heat resistant tape to adhere the transfer in place. It can be a little tricky to line up the words straight. I always do 2 images, so I can put them on both sides of the mug...I want both sides to be cute!

Then click the silicone wrap around the mug. This holds it all in place while the heating happens...the transfer paper from the infusible ink transfers is not enough. You can likely just use the heat resist tape...or just the wrap...but I've been using both because I have both. 

Then bake in the oven at 400* for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and pop off the silicone wrap...it's hot! Then let it cool down for about 20 minutes and then remove the heat tape and the transfer. It should have transferred the ink perfectly.

The mug all on it's own is a great handmade gift! But let's really go over the top--next up, a Golden Snitch Shirt!

Gift #2: Golden Snitch Shirt

Supplies Needed:

Hook Tool
T-Shirt (Got this one at the Dollar Tree)

I bought a whole bunch of Harry Potter images on Cricut Design Space. They are licensed, so they don't come with Cricut Access. I love these whispy looking ones. I used the Golden Snitch and Hogwarts Castle on the card.

Step 1: Cut Iron-on

Begin by cutting the iron-on vinyl in reverse (mirror).

Step 2: Weed the Vinyl

Remove the excess iron-on vinyl from the image.

Step 3: Heat Press

Now place the shirt on the EasyPress mat and the iron-on on the shirt. Then press with the EasyPress 2 for the recommended time. 

Step 4: Cool Peel

Then wait until the shirt cools down. After it's cooled, peel off the plastic transfer sheet. Done!

Cricut Design Space

Gift #3: Handmade Card Supplies Needed: Cardstock Gold Metallic Posterboard (again Dollar Tree) Cricut Machine Cricut Design Space

Okay, I don't have a lot of pictures for this process. Here's what I did. Just open up Cricut Design Space. Create a new canvas and then select the images tab. 

Step 1:

Search 'insert cards'.

Step 2:

Find an insert card that is blank that you like the corners of.

Step 3:

Insert Hogwarts Castle.

Step 4:

Attach the insert card and castle file, so it cuts it all out at once.

Step 5: 

Insert paper on the mat. Add your scoring wheel or stylus in the machine. The machine will score the card center line first.

Step 6:

Switch to the Cutting Blade and click go. Then the machine will cut out the notches and design.

Step 7:

Carefully remove card and insert metallic card cut to the proper size.
