Today, I am introducing you to a new toy I just got, thanks to an early birthday/Christmas gift from my mom:
It’s called a Cricut “Create” (pronounced “cricket”), and it’s very neat. Basically, it’s a machine that has a little automated blade that cuts letters and shapes (seen up and to the left in the photo). You can program in what you want it to cut, and the things can be anywhere from 1/4″ to 12″ high.
I’m thinking it will be fun to use in scrapbooking, and also for the girls’ school projects and 4-H also. Since getting it last week, we already used it for titles on the science fair boards (I would show you a photo, but they have – blessedly – already been brought to the school).
Although I watched the DVD that came with the Cricut, I’m new to the whole idea. If any of you have one out there, please share tips and ideas!
