BEST WEDDING CRAFT MACHINE

GUYS if you don’t know about this craft machine, then you need to start researching. This LITERALLY saved me so much money on DIY wedding projects.

This magical machine is called the Cricut! No not like the insect cricket, but pronounced the same way! I have definitely mentioned this in a post (I believe it was my must needed wedding planning items), but I wanted to designate a whole post to this life saver. I am going to show some pictures below of what I created with this machine to sell you on it, then tell you how easy it is.

these were our save the dates I addresssed immediately after getting my Cricut so my skills were not all there yet…it gets better

So you just saw a lot of picutres…LITERALLY HANDMADE THESE ALL…ON MY OWN. When I tell you I have 0 craftting genes I literally mean ZERO. I am not a crafter and never really have been. I heard about this machine on a Facebook group and immediately starting googling to see all the amazing things you could make. The accountant in me starting pricing out the materials versus buying these items on Etsty, and there was NO comparison. I was going to save so much money.

I went out and bought the machine at Black Friday pricing, and starting watching Youtube videos. My first ever project was our wedding welcome sign. I bought the mirror at Ikea for $10, and bought some pretty vinyl. My first attempt was what we actually used for our welcome sign. I was SO PROUD. If I can do it, you can do it too.

You can buy Cricut at Amazon, Michaels, Walmart, etc (my specific version is called the Cricut Explore Air 2, but there are different versin. Hope you guys enjoyed today’s post - if you want more posts on specific projects please let me know in the comments :)

Until next time, xoxo,
