Custom Party Favors with the Cricut Maker

Already have a Cricut Maker? On July 11th HSN will premiere a Scoring Wheel bundle and a Knife Blade bundle for those of us who already have a machine and are ready to take the next step in our creativity. I used the embossed foil papers and metallic gold leather to create these party favors, and I am loving the results! Custom leather initials and custom box sizes and shapes? Yes please! {FTC Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post and contains affiliate links. This means I may make a small commission at no additional cost to you if you make a purchase.}

2. Hide the initials by clicking on the eye next to the images in the box. This will allow you to cut multiple boxes.

6. Once you've switched out the blade, complete the cutting process, then repeat for as many boxes as you need.

7. When you are ready to begin cutting your initials, replace the Fine Point Blade with the Knife Blade.

8. Hide the box image in Design Space and unhide the initials, then change them if desired.

9. Place the leather shiny side down on the Strong Grip mat and select mirror image in the mat screen. NOTE - you MUST cut one inch off of the leather so it will fit under the star rollers.

10. Select 4-5 oz Tooling Leather as your material in Design Space (the setting for Metallic Leather currently still defaults to the deep cut blade).

11. Cut the letters and remove them from the mat.

WHY DO I NEED THE CRICUT KNIFE BLADE AND SCORING WHEEL?

If you already own the Cricut Maker you know that the creative possibilities are endless. From the thousands of images available in Design Space to the hundreds of different materials it can cut, your imagination is the only limitation. Now with the Knife Blade you can add even more materials - including thick chipboard, balsa wood and mat board. Think of the project possibilities!

The Scoring Wheel gives you extra deep, clear scores on a variety of materials so you can create everything from custom gift boxes to three dimensional art. It will take your paper crafting to a whole new level!
