I love using my Cricut machine to make custom gifts and personalized items for me and my family. I used the Cricut Joy to make 3 bags to hold different things like travel supplies, make-up and markers. If you are interested in getting a Cricut machine but don’t know which one is best for you, I recommend checking out this post where I highlight the benefits if each specific machine. I have owned all three versions of the Cricut machines now and I think all of them are a great options for different reasons.
I think the Cricut Explore Air 2 Craft Cutting Machine is the perfect all-around machine. Right now you can score a great deal on the Cricut Explore Air 2 Everything Bundle is priced at only $269.99 (reg $497.82). I am loving the convenience and portability of the Cricut Joy too. You can get FREE shipping with code MAYSHIP.
Here is a peek at the supplies I used in order to create these fun bags using the Cricut 3pk Cosmetic Bags.
For this bag I used the image My Happy Face Compact (#M175786CA) from Cricut Design Space and the Cricut Joy Holographic Smart Iron-On in Dahlia. I love how the holographic nature of the iron on makes it look like different shades depending on how the light hits it.
I finally used Infusible Ink for the first time ever and I am hooked! For this one I used the Cricut 2pk Joy Patterned Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets in warm splashpad and cool splashpad. Unlike an iron-on transfer or vinyl application, where artwork is attached on top of a the material using adhesive, Infusible Ink heat transfer becomes one with the material itself. It’s so cool! For this project I used the Spark Joy (#M228E788B) image from Cricut Design Space.
Lastly, I created a bag that was perfect for all my travels to hold things like charging cords, power adapters and things like that. I used the Wanderlust Adventure Awaits (#M3AC9627) image from Cricut Design space and use the Cricut Joy Everyday Smart Iron-On in black and parchment.
For regular iron-ons an iron will work, but if you are looking to use Infusible Ink or to just make things easier the Cricut EasyPress 2 9″x9″ is something you will want. The Cricut Joy Starter Tool Set is a handy thing to have too!
The Cricut Joy is a great option for labeling too! You could use it to create labels in your kitchen like I did for my baking supplies.
