You know I love FUN and EASY, right? Today I’m sharing an easy Cricut Explore Valentine project! Yay!
A couple of weeks ago I told you all about recieving the Cricut Explore Air and how excited I was to begin doing “all the projects” that are in my head. That’s still true. I’m loving this little machine and I have so much in store for it. As I’ve been playing around with it, I’m finding just how wonderful and easy it is to work with. The first place I started was in the Cricut Design Space. There’s so many fun projects to access and tons of cute images to use in creating your own designs. With Valentines Day not far away I decided to do a valentine project! I’m going to show you the process I went through to complete it.
Easy Cricut Explore Valentine Project:
- In Cricut Design Space I chose to do a new project. Next, I went to insert images. The thought of hearts, arrows, and a love theme would surely create a fun valentine project.
2. I had some magnet sheets and thought I’d find some images that would make cute love magnets. There’s also a search bar to enter in specific images you are looking for. With a cricut access subscription you get access to thousands of images to choose from and use. Click on the images and insert them into your new project. There were soooo many hearts, arrows and love notes to choose from making it a difficult time deciding. That was the only hard thing about this project!
Check it out!!
3. After inserting the images you can decide which to keep or discard. Next, work on the different objects by changing the color and determining what you want to cut and what you want to use the pen tool on.
4. As you make changes you can group items together. In this case I chose to take a shape to cut out as a magnet and use the pen tool to write a design on the magnet. I chose to do it all in Black and white and color it with a marker after cutting the magnets out. You can see how I started the process here:
5. I found a cute heart, X and O image that I thought would be so cute. I also duplicated some hearts by copy and pasting them to fill in some of the spaces. Here is my completed design, ready to draw and cut:
6. The knob is set at custom and I selected magnet sheets on my computer. I hit the circuit cut button and off it went creating my design!
This design pretty much filled up an 8.5 x 11 magnet sheet. The cutting action is amazing. I love watching it create. Let me tell you, it’s so so EASY to complete a project like this!
7. Once it completed cutting, I seperated the magnets and gave them a bit of color with a new hot pink brush pen I had. Here are the final results of my easy Cricut Explore Valentine Project:
Finally, I put them on my refrigerator. (this is usually a No-No in my home) The hubby and I can now play with them. <3 Awwwwwww
Do you want to give this Easy Cricut Explore Valentine Project a try? The images I used should be easy to find or pick some that speak out to you and make your own Valentine magnets! They can be used for decor in your home, given as a gift, or even given as valentines for the kids. Look for other images that appeal to you if you’re not into Valentines,. Maybe you want to make alphabet magnets or Birthday magnets!
The possibilities are endless!
I hope you enjoyed this project and can see how FUN and EASY it really is to do.
