One of the best things about Cricut is the ability to turn any image in to a variety of projects using different materials. Using this hooray image from TomKat Studio (exclusive to the Gold Cricut Explore Air at Jo-Ann) I've created two projects that are perfect for any party - a cake topper and a customized serving plate! Each project took less than 15 minutes...which is perfect since I pretty much wait until the last minute to prepare for any occasion. ;)
