Hey friends! You know how I feel about my Cricut. I love creating, crafting, and decorating with my Cricut Explore Air 2. Today I’m sharing 8 Fourth of July crafts that I personally designed and crafted with my machine. Everything from pinwheels to cake toppers to invitations. I hope you love them!
One of the things I love so much about working with my Cricut and in Design Space is that your imagination is your only limit. I used to dream up projects and then back away from them because they were going to take way too much time to cut out. Now, with Cricut’s amazing technology, I can be as intricate and detailed as I want.
For instance, my paper pinwheels might seem simple, but it would take a pro 5-7 minutes to cut out one and then you’d still need a template and circle punch. In 5-7 minutes with my Cricut I can cut out 30… maybe more! Assembly is the fun part anyway. ;)
Everything you see in the photography above is part of my Oh My Stars Cricut cartridge. Some, like the pinwheel and s’more boxes, are cut files. While others, like the invitation and cupcake toppers are print then cut. Never tried the Print Then Cut feature on your Cricut? It’s actually very easy. I have a Print Then Cut video tutorial that will show you just how simple it is!

Materials You Can Cut With Cricut
Cricut not only makes a great machine, but they develop and test materials that work best with their machines. For instance, Cricut has a glitter cardstock that doesn’t shed… and it comes in 10 plus colors! You can cut it all day long and not find glitter all over your craft room. That said, some of the non-Cricut glitter paper at your local craft store can flake into your Cricut cutting blade. Trust me. I made that mistake once and I had to clean it out between each sheet. Ugh! Even then the glitter would get in the way of the cut before it was done, because it would collect on the blade. The great news is, the Cricut materials are not any more expensive than the others. In some cases, less expensive and in all cases, better on your machine.
I encourage you to browse the Cricut shop. Here’s a list of the materials you can cut with Cricut. You’ll be surprised!
