Y'all know how much I love my Cricut Explore Air! I've only had mine for less than a year and I've already created countless projects with it – both for sharing here on the blog and just for personal projects around my home! Its capabilities and uses are practically endless, thanks to the various functions it performs and the variety of materials you can use it to cut! I get a good amount of questions about the Cricut Explore, so I thought I'd share some insight here with you today, as well as an AWESOME roundup of wedding related projects you can make with this incredible machine.
What different kinds of DIY projects can I make with the Cricut?
As I mentioned, the possibilities are endless with the Cricut Explore Air! You can use it to make just about anything you could imagine for your wedding day. Think paper goods like your save the dates, wedding invitations, envelope liners, thank you cards, menus, programs, and so much more! Then there are other paper projects like paper flowers, confetti, garlands and other decor items. But the Cricut can cut far more than just paper! It also cuts materials like vinyl, leather, craft foam, iron-on, foil, and so much more! You can use these materials and Cricut's cutting abilities to personalize all sorts of different aspects for your big day!
To demonstrate some of the incredible projects you can create using the Cricut, I've rounded up 25 of my favorite wedding projects using the Cricut Explore Air! Check them out below!
