Cricut Sweetness Valentines
I cannot believe the holidays have flown by and it’s almost time for Valentine’s Day! Wow, this year is already flying. I have a couple older projects that I haven’t shared with you here, using my Cricut machine for love-inspired Cricut sweetness projects.
How about some sweets to start with? I used store bought brownies, topped them with a swirl of chocolate icing and dusted with confectioners sugar.
I then used my Cricut Cake machine and cut out chocolate using the Cindy Loo Cart.
On top of the chocolate I cut out pink fondant and added them. Then I added them to the brownies.
So, maybe you are looking for something else to make, how about a personalized coffee mug?
I love the look of etched glass. We used Armour Glass Etch.
First step is to apply your Cricut cut vinyl. any color works because it’s just the stencil for the finished project.
Wearing gloves, and protect your surface, even a minion can do this if they are old enough.
Dab the etching cream onto the glass in the open spots of the stencil. You may need to adjust the stencil vinyl to conform to your round shape.
Completely cover the stencil openings. Allow to sit according to directions. then scrape off excess.
Complete remove etching cream in the sink with water. Then peel off vinyl.
Wet and messy, but how cute is that mug?
Now take that mug and make your gift set.
For the card, I layered on cut out hearts- using the Cricut Font and Basic Shapes Heart. Then sewed the middle for 3-D hearts.
Tie up some candy in a clear bag, tie with twine and add a cute tag.
This layout uses Love you A Latte cartridge.
More interested in tea than coffee? It’s still a great cart to have. How about some tea for two? Love You a Latte.
Want some more ideas for cute items from the Love You a Latte Cart? How about a cute gift set, a fun card, gift wrap and some biscotti?
There’s always a reason to send a card. Again, using the Love You a Latte cartridge..
And if you would like to create a fast chore or job chart for February. Try this one. Using Cricut Classroom-Feb/March
I just used a 12×12 piece of paper, and added the diecuts and chores, with clothespins write on with a sharpie.
How about some Romantic looking Valentine Cards?
Using Victorian Romance, I used cuts for both card.
