Cricut Projects for the Baby
I absolutely love being able to personalized gifts. Baby showers are no different! Here are 3 different things that I did for an upcoming baby shower gift that I did with my Cricut.
I started with creating my designs in Design Space. I measured the space I had to work with on the onesies and made sure that the designs fit inside that space.
I placed the iron-on vinyl face down on my standard grip mat. I selected the material and had my Cricut cut out the design. When it was down cutting I weeded the designs.
I used my EasyPress to transfer the vinyl onto the onesies. I follow the Cricut Heat Guide to know how long to press and at what temperature. I press the front, allow it to cool, remove the transfer sheet, and then press the back of the onesie.
Personalized Baby Bottle
I started in Design Space with finding the text I liked for the first name. I then ungrouped the name so that I could change the color for each letter.
I then added the middle name and choose a font I liked for that. I changed that name to a different color. I placed the middle name under the first name where I wanted it.
With both the first and middle name selected I clicked on the offset button up on top. I played around with the spacing for the offset to where I liked it and clicked apply.
It will be black at first but you can change the color.
Then I had the Cricut cut out all the pieces. It was a lot of mat changes because of all the different colors.
I used my weeder tool to get ride of the access vinyl.
I used transfer tape to place all the letters onto the white offset.
Then I used the same transfer tape to move the whole layered image over to the bottle.
I uploaded each design into Design Space. I sized them to fit on the bibs.
I placed the Iron-On vinyl on my Standard Grip mat, shiny side down.
I selected my material (Don't forget to mirror!) and had the Cricut cut it out. When it was done cutting I weeded each design.
I centered the cut image onto the bib.
I used my Easy Press to transfer. Again, check with Cricut Heat Guide to know for how long and what temp.
After it was cool, I peeled off the transfer sheet. And pressed again from the back of the bib.
I am so excited to be able to give these homemade personalized gifts to the new addition. What other baby items have you used your Cricut to personalize.
