Make it in Minutes Monday

Make it in Minutes Monday with the Cricut Explore

Welcome to Make it in Minutes Monday. I thought it would be fun to feature quick and easy cards or projects that take less than 10 minutes to make, but look like you spent more time making them.

Did I mention that I love the Cricut Make it Now projects for the Cricut Explore? In fact today we should title the post Make it Now Monday!

I customized the Gold valentine and Envelope Make it Now project by changing up the colors and adding a liner to the card. I used red glitter paper from DCVW and silver glitter paper from Recollections. I used the glitter paper setting and it cut like butter! I used my paper cutter to cut a liner for the inside of the card, but you could also do that using your machine.

Here is another Make it Now project that I made several months ago. This would be perfect for Valentine’s Day too!

The Make it Now instructions said to cut the letters out of vinyl, but I decided to try to push the Cricut Explore and cut them out of textured paper I had in my stash. I was amazed at how cleanly the Explore cut the lettering and images. Click here to see my original post.

Hope you and your family are having a wonderful new year!
