The Cricut can cut regular paper, cardstock, poster board, or regular paper. You can cut paper in basic or simple designs to make cards, envelopes, Christmas ornaments, or embellishments for scrapbooks, planners, or home decor.

Cricut DIY projects with Vinyl
Vinyl is most commonly thought of as a wall decor item, and it can be adorable in so many uses. However, you can also use vinyl to make a stencil for anything you are painting to get nice crisp lines. You can use iron on vinyl to add a design to an item, or you could again use it as a stencil to paint on a design or removing color by spraying over vinyl letters for a cool effect.
- Roman numeral clock numbers for a clock
- Custom wedding sign
- Special occasion water bottles (or any gear really)
