One of the best things about the Cricut Maker is that you can use all of the different tools. The Scoring Wheel is amazing. I used it for this Christmas Village, and it worked amazingly for scoring the Cricut Kraft Board. The scoring stylus just doesn’t score as well as the scoring wheel.
If you have a Cricut Maker, the Knife Blade is a necessity! It is amazing to cut wood with as well as chipboard. You can see one of my favorite chipboard projects here. I used wood cut with the knife blade for this Holiday Card.
One of my very favorite things to cut out with the Cricut Maker is Iron-on or Heat Transfer Vinyl. I love putting it on shirts, hats, bags, or pillows. It is SO much fun to use! If you want to learn better how to create Iron-on projects with your Maker, then check out this post.
Like I mentioned above, I love creating pillows with Iron-on Vinyl! It’s the best! Seasonal decor is so easy to create with the Maker!
Using the Cricut Maker + Rotary blade to cut felt is amazing! I created these fun Farm Halloween Costumes using the rotary and Knife Blade, and it was SO fun!
Have you ever wanted to put vinyl decals on things around you home? Pantry bins, your Cricut Maker, or even on the back window of your car? The Cricut Maker makes cutting out decals so easy, and it is such a simple way to dress things up. You could use Permanent or Removable Vinyl for this.
Creating Home Decor with your Cricut Maker has endless possibilities, no matter the medium you’re working with. This You & Me Master Bedroom Sign uses Iron-on on wood and was such a fun one to create + I adore how it turned out.
You guys! Infusible Ink is A.MAZ.ING! I’ve only used it a handful of times, but every time I do, I’m in awe. It’s magical to use! Whether you’re creating coasters, a tote or a shirt, the Cricut Maker is the perfect machine for cutting the material.
The tools that are available to use with the Cricut Maker are amazing! I love that most of them can use the QuickSwap housing, and also love that you can use so many different materials with them. You can check out this post to see four different projects, one of my favorite being this birthday card made with the perforation blade.
Creating personalized gifts or other things is one of my very favorite ways to use my Cricut Maker. When we went on vacation last summer, I put my kids names on their pencil boxes as well as their clipboards so they knew which was theirs. It worked perfectly. Using Iron-on and Adhesive Vinyl to label things is awesome!
Leather! Using the Deep-Point Blade you can cut leather with the Cricut Maker! There are so many different things you can make with leather. I created this fun notebook that has a pocket inside, as well as a fun iron-on saying on the front.
If you haven’t tried cutting felt with the rotary blade on the Maker, then you need to. You could create a fun felt garland for any time of year using felt. Here is one for Spring.
If you’ve never thrown a party put together with your Cricut Maker, have you ever really thrown a party?! 🙂 Maybe it’s just me, but being able to create every piece of the party with the Cricut is SO.MUCH.FUN!! Using Chipboard, Cardstock, Party Foil, and Vinyl, you’ll have an awesome party put together in no time.
Print then Cut is one of my very favorite things to do with my Cricut Maker! Not only can it print then cut, but it can do it on colored paper as well as white. Check out these fun Easter Treat Bags that are Print then Cut on sticker paper.
I know I’ve mentioned Chipboard already, but when making projects with the Cricut Chipboard on the Cricut Maker, using the Knife Blade you get such clean cuts and this chipboard is thick! It’s works perfectly to create fun banners!
Here is another example of ways to use felt and your Cricut Maker to create fun holiday decor! Make some cute mini wreaths for Christmas time for your kitchen cabinets or where ever you’d like to put them in your home.
Cute gift wrap made from paper is one of my favorite ways to use the Maker Machine. This little box is perfect for a gift card or some jewelry + it’s adorable and easy to make!
Create your own graphic tees with your Cricut Maker. Whether you’re using patterned iron-on or solid, this is a fun project. This Hello Weekend shirt is a fun project to use patterned iron-on for.
If you haven’t used your Cricut Maker to draw yet, you should try it! It’s a fun twist on cutting or printing, and can create a totally different look. I love that the Cricut Maker will hold the blade and the pen at the same time. It’s easy to create fun gifts by drawing and cutting.
This is also a draw then cut project, but this uses the curved text option. It’s a fun way to add a twist to horizontal text and the Maker makes it so easy.
The possibilities are endless with what you can create with the Cricut Maker. I hope you’ve found some inspiration with these 20 Projects to Make with your Maker Machine.
Unless you are using tools that can ONLY be used by a Cricut Maker machine, these same projects can be made by owners of a Cricut Explore machine. And there are some materials that require the additional cutting force pressure of the Maker to use, but the Explore still has an impressive listing of materials it can cut and folks can create amazing projects with.

Some of these projects can be made on the Explore family of machines. A lot of them do use the tools that are only available on the Maker though.
