It’s no secret that I love my Cricut machines. They can be used to create so many things from a simple card to home decor. Today I am going to share my top 5 Cricut Explore Air 2 craft projects.

Top 5 Cricut Explore Air 2 Crafts

The first craft project I would like to share with you are these Valentine cards. This Valentine card has not only been a hit on here but at school when my boys pass them out. Both of my boys have passed these out for the past 2 years. For this project I used cardstock and the Cricut black pen. It was so easy, I just added the images from Design Space and my Cricut Explore Air 2 did the writing/drawing as well as the cutting.

Next, I want to share these shark inspired shirts that I made my sons for Shark Week. Making custom and personalized shirts is probably one of my favorite things to create with my Cricut Explore Air 2. It is so easy to whip up a cool and fun design on Design Space and then cutting it out in minutes. For these shirts I used Cricut Everyday iron-on (don’t forget to mirror your image when working with iron-on).

Here is another iron-on project (you will quickly see with this post that iron-on is one of my favorite materials to work with). For this project I added some Cricut Everyday iron-on in black to a makeup bag. This will be perfect to give as a gift to someone who just adores makeup. You can even whip up this project a couple of minutes before leaving to the birthday celebration. I just typed “selfie prep kit” into the text box in Cricut Design Space and chose one of the fonts accessible with my Cricut Access and voila I had a custom makeup bag in minutes.

This next project was inspired by my boys and it makes me so happy to see that it is one of my top craft projects. Last year a little before Mother’s Day my son asked if I could help him make the Mother’s Day gift he wanted to give out to me, his grandmother’s, and close aunts. He decided on Mother’s Day coupon books, I went on Design Space and searched coupon book and found this darling book. I also chose to add some writing to the front with my Cricut gold pen. I left the inside pages blank so he could fill out the type of coupons he wanted to give.

As I mentioned earlier I love iron-on and what can make iron-on better well glitter of course, that is what I used for this next project. I took one of the velvet pumpkins from the Target dollar spot and added glitter iron-on to make it more festive. Even though it was a simple little word that I added I thought it was the perfect addition to the little velvet pumpkin. This was also one of the first projects I made where I used my Mini EasyPress.
