Cricut Print then Cut

How to Take Your Art into the Next Dimension with Cricut 
(sponsored post)

It started out as a doodle, something small, casually tossed in the margin of your grocery list. But somehow this graphic element took over and before you knew it, it became the decorative element to everything in your world. Unfortunately all those minute details that you added make it virtually impossible to transform it into the third dimension. Not true. If you can print it, you can cut it with the Cricut Explore machine. 

Now with the newest feature of the Cricut Explore machine, you can choose your image (either your own or one of 50,000+ in the Cricut Design Lab), flatten the image and then click 'Go'. Once printed, the Cricut Explore machine works its magic to bring your 2-dimensional idea into the 3rd dimension.

Take a look at this super short instructional video (less than 4 minutes) and see just how easy it can be…

  1. Can you believe the simplicity of this! No tracing, no fooling around with high pass/low pass/threshhold stuff like the cameo. I just brought in a jpeg I found on line, cleaned it up and have it ready to print so I can cut it. This alone makes me happy to have the Explore. Now if I can remember to order the card stock I need from you, I'll be a happier camper. Have a great weekend.

  2. Thanks Christina for the links to important sites. I found lots of stuff I needed to know about.
