Make to sell with Cricut

28 January 2021

At Cricut, we’re passionate about enabling our maker community to turn their dreams into a reality. Our machines, tools, accessories, and software allow people to lead creative lives every day, enabling them to discover new passions and possibilities.

But what if that passion could be turned into a business venture, and you could make money being creative? Here are some of the different ways our members have been using Cricut in their businesses.

Nurture & Cheer

We interviewed Emma of Nurture & Cheer to find out how she designs and makes her own products with the help of her Cricut machines. In this video she explains how she has been able to do more with her machine including expanding her product offering to include her own hand-lettering designs and the ability to offer personalisation on her items.

Lemon & Bear

Megan Birnie set up her business when she couldn’t find things she wanted for her own wedding and decided to make them instead. She soon realised that other people might be looking for them too, so started selling them. Read the story of her side-hustle here.

The Crafty Gentleman

Mike, otherwise known to his social media followers and customers as The Crafty Gentleman, uses his Cricut to make handmade gifts for crafters and makers. He sells both finished items, such as project bags, and pre-cut iron-on decals that his customers can apply to T-shirts, sweatshirts, bags, totes, banners, and many more fabrics.

The Bargello Edit

Nerrisa at The Bargello Edit runs workshops and sells patterns and kits for the super-addictive art of Bargello tapestry. She uses a Cricut to personalise the bags she supplies her kits in. She’s a self-confessed Cricut addict too, so you can see some of her other creations on her Instagram feed.

Laurel Mae Art

Full-time artist Laurel transforms her cute and cosy illustrations into prints, stickers, greetings cards, and bookmarks and sells them in her Etsy shop. She uses her Cricut machine to make stickers that she has drawn digitally and uploaded into Design Space to cut. She shares some of her processes and behind the scenes in her studio on her Instagram feed and stories.

Eimear Hutchinson

Eimear creates stunning map art with the Cricut Foil Transfer Tool from her home in Sligo, Ireland. She makes beautiful personalised gifts and even includes some heart stickers cut from red vinyl so that you can place them on your foiled map in your favourite places.

The Global Cricut Community

People all over the world are using their Cricut machines to sell their makes. Our colleagues in the USA have also been discovering the amazing ways members of our community use our products in their businesses. You can read more about that here.

If you’re marketing your business via social media, we’d love to be tagged on Instagram @officialcricut_uk or Facebook @officialcricuteurope so we can see your creations!
