I am so HAPPY to say that I finally purchased a Cricut from JoAnn’s Fabric and Craft store and I have been thrilled with all of the crafty possibilities of things that I can make in the next couple of months! So here is a picture of my first project that I completed:
I used scrapbook paper, Mod Podge, ribbon, and eyelets to decorate and create this altered clipboard. The total cost of this project was probably around $3.
The next project that I made was this little covered mini-composition book. I found a 4-pack of these at Dollar Tree for only $1! I also covered this with some scrapbook paper and used Mod Podge as the adhesive. I then added ribbon, eyelets, and jewels for decorations. I used my Cricut for the lettering and the oval.
So now that you have seen my little projects that I’ve been working on, I’d thought that I would share some great links to teaching ideas for using a Cricut in your classroom.
