#MonthofMakes Roundup Part 2

16 July 2021

This week, we are back with more ideas and inspiration to get you making! Sometimes all you need is an idea or a theme to help spark ideas for your own crafty makes. So join us every day on Instagram Stories for #MonthofMakes!

Some of week 2’s prompts have been Dinosaurs, Plants, Banner and Make to Give and we have loved seeing the Cricut community get involved! Search the hashtag #MonthofMakes on Instagram to see all the amazing makes our Cricut Community have created so far.  

If you didn’t catch #MonthofMakes Roundup Part 1, you can find it on the blog for more project-making inspiration!

Here is a roundup of this week’s #MonthofMakes themes:

Day 9: Sports

From personalising activewear to water bottles, there are lots of ways your Cricut Machine can help! Eimear from @EimearHutchinson on Instagram used SportFlex Iron-on to personalise a swimming costume!

Cards are perfect for all occasions! Maysiebug on Instagram made a card to celebrate a sporting win!

Day 10: Plants

Real or paper – plants are always a good idea! You could personalise your plant pots and watering cans like the proud plant parent you are! Or, if you’re not great at keeping plants alive, why not make a plant out of paper?
