Four Great Cricut Projects That Can Put Money in Your Bank Account


Visitors: 2,278

There are several Cricut projects that you can use to make money. Don't believe me? Just take a look around eBay and Etsy, and even local craft fairs in your area, and you will see what I mean. After all, seeing is believing!

Really, you are only limited by your imagination when it comes to money-making projects using die cuts. But to get your creative thinking cap working, here are four ways to put your die cutter machine to good use:

1. Diaper Cakes

If you don't know what a diaper cake is, basically it is a popular baby shower centerpiece or gift, where the diapers are rolled up and secured, then arranged in such a way that they form a tiered cake. They are a very popular gift, but many people simply do not have the crafty skills nor time to create them, so others have made it their “business" creating diaper cakes. One of the most inexpensive ways to embellish the cakes is using Cricut cutouts. It is far cheaper to use die cuts to embellish diaper cakes, than to purchase stuffed animals, rattles, pacifiers, and other goodies that others typically use to decorate their creations.

2. Personalized Kids’ Art

Personalized kids’ art is a big business for crafters. Whether you use a mat and frame to showcase the die cuts, or decoupage the cutouts to a plaque, this is one of the easiest Cricut projects to not only create, but also to sell. Boost your earnings by making the art functional. For example, turn a personalized plaque into a coat hanger by adding pegs. Easy and fun!

3. Custom Cards and Invitations

If card making is your paper crafting specialty, why not make it your business! Considering how expensive store bought cards are, selling handmade cards can be quite lucrative. You would be surprised at the number of people willing to buy custom handmade invitations, birthday cards, and more.

4. Scrapbook Layouts

Just like custom made cards, there is a strong market for scrapbook page layouts. If scrapbooking is your thing, turn it into a working gig. Using a machine to make die cuts for your layouts will significantly reduce both your expenses and time to produce these layouts, resulting in a better profit margin.

That's just four of the many Cricut projects you can start doing today to earn money. I'm sure you can think of more on your own. Don't be surprised to find that you are soon profiting from your favorite hobby!
