How to use your Cricut with vinyl - instructions for beginners.
I love using my Cricut Maker and cut lots of card and paper with it. Even though my Cricut arrived with a starter pack of vinyl with it, it took a little time to work up the courage to use it...
I thought it was going to be complex or awkward - how wrong was I!
Using vinyl with your Cricut is easy and fun - once I got started I LOVED it and I'm thinking of where I can stick vinyl next!
These Cricut vinyl cutting instructions follows a project I did to decorate my bins with my sunflower design - and I'm very happy to tell you it turned out well!
There are all different kinds of Cricut vinyl available - as this is a beginner vinyl cutting project, let's stick to the ordinary standard vinyl... (read more about vinyl types and tips for using it here).
What you'll need:
I'm making a vinyl from my own sunflower design, available here...
Well done! Your vinyl cutting project is complete!
One last tip is to keep your transfer paper - stick it back onto its backing sheet (you did save it earlier in the project, didn't you?). You can use it again while it's still sticky and it should last several uses at least.
I hope that's helped and you feel a bit more confident with how to use your Cricut with vinyl now - have fun and keep creating!
