Buying A Cricut. Is It Worth It?
Is it worth buying. I will say yes. I mean, it depends on what you are doing as a hobby but for me it was definitely worth it.
What do I do with it you ask…? Oh let me tell you.
WHAT IS A CRICUT?
I originally bought it for my wife as she is very crafty and always bugged me about it. I ended up getting her one for Christmas and she loved it… after a few weeks I would poke my head in and see what a ‘Cricut’ was.. to my surprise I was like “hey, I can use that for my nerdy stuff”
First, what does the Cricut do. Good question.
It is a cutting machine….that’s what it is. Sounds simple. And it is. But this thing cuts anything in any manner you would like it to.
It can cut fabric, paper, wood and even leather. It all depends on the blade you get for yourself. That being said there are a few you can choose from.
IS IT VERSATILE?
Short answer. Yup. They can be.
If you make a lot of projects that are specifically to inspire or if you make things that are designed to make things look cool, Cricut can help with that. I know my family uses them constantly for projects check those two boxes or that never see the light of day. It can be used to pretty much do anything.
Just recently I’ve made labels for supplies in my craft room, artwork for the kids bedroom, confetti, lunch bags and homework books for school , shirts for a friend’s kids first birthday party, decorations for a super hero party, paper flowers for a gender reveal party, shirts for a dinosaur themed party, and several other random cut files for friends.
ARE THERE DIFFERENT VERSIONS?
You better believe there are. As mentioned above the Cricut itself is very versatile but you may find after a bit of research that there is a specific Cricut made just for you. Here a re a few to start your journey.
