Be mine Matchbox
Unveil the sweetness of love with this ‘Bee Mine’ matchbox creation. This adorable Valentine’s Day project features a bee-themed design. Use it to gift stickers, candy, or small love notes for your Valentine’s Day celebration. See it here and let the sweetness unfold.
You’ll want to be sure to have the Cricut Scoring Wheel for this design.
Love YOU Card
Nothing says Valentine’s Day like a handmade card. This one is super easy to put together and I’ve created an overlay in Design Space to help you line up your elements for this card. Great if you want to make multiple cards!
Here is another card using bold typography. Use your favorite patterned paper and cardstock for this “XO” card. Customize and embellish it to make the perfect greeting for sending affection on Valentine’s Day.
Two Mini Card Projects
I love making 3″x3″ cards. These are a great tuck in for a gift bag. Here are two mini card projects that I created in Cricut Design Space.
Notebook Page Gift Tag or Valentine
The next project was created to look like a mini notebook page. I love how this project is so simple, yet so fun! Your drawing pens do most of the work in this unique card. You can find this project HERE.
Unlock the charm of simplicity with these whimsical little birds, a drawing pen project that has garnered numerous saves and likes on my profile. This super-fast and easy project is perfect for your drawing pen, allowing you to effortlessly add a touch of whimsy to your creations. To enhance their appeal, I’ve paired the drawn cards with red and pink gingham cardstock, creating a delightful ensemble that adds to the charm of these little avian wonders.
Milk Carton Valentine’s Boxes
These cute milk cartons are another fan favorite in Cricut Design Space. I imported a pattern from Creative Fabrica and used the print then cut feature to create the patterned paper for this design. The sides are embellished with a heart and a writing pen Valentine’s Day note. Learn more about this project in this blog post.
Rustic Hearts with Stenciled Patch
Crafted with precision using the Cricut Rotary Blade, these charming ticking stripe fabric hearts are a delightful addition to your decor. Their timeless design brings a touch of rustic elegance, making them perfect for tiered tray displays or as a cozy bowl filler. To enhance their uniqueness, I’ve created a small muslin patch and stenciled it with a reusable design available with the project in Cricut Design Space. I love how the stenciling adds an extra layer of personalization to these hearts. I sewed these hearts using my Brother CS6000i sewing machine.
I’ve shared this project on my profile HERE.
Valentine Sticker Sheet
Unleash your creativity with this Valentine sticker sheet, meticulously crafted in Design Space using mostly basic shapes and free fonts. Each sticker blends simplicity and charm to add a personalized touch to your Valentine’s Day festivities. From heartfelt messages to cute illustrations, this collection is a testament to the endless possibilities of design, proving that sometimes, the most extraordinary creations begin with the simplest elements. Cricut Sticker Paper is a great product if you’re new to sticker creations.
Valentine’s Day Kitchen Towel
Elevate your kitchen decor with this simple Valentine’s Day kitchen towel. The elegant design adds a touch of romance to your culinary space, making it a perfect accent for the season of love. Featuring the timeless buffalo plaid pattern from Expressions Vinyl, this towel is not only stylish but also incredibly durable. Crafted with care, it withstands washings exceptionally well, maintaining its festive flair and spreading warmth and affection throughout your home. A simple yet heartwarming addition that speaks volumes to the enduring quality you get with Expressions Vinyl. You can use your household iron for this project, but I highly recommend my heat press if you want to get into Heat Transfer Vinyl projects.
Dollar Tree Valentine Mini Tote Treat Bags
As I wrap up this showcase, I couldn’t help but feature a project that represents a significant milestone in my crafting evolution. This treat bag, one of my earliest heat transfer vinyl creations, was also among my initial shares on the Cricut profile and highlighted in a blog post. Looking back, it’s a testament to the growth in my skills and knowledge. This project prompted me to delve into the skills of contouring and slicing in Cricut Design Space. I navigated the challenges of transforming a multi-layered train design into a cohesive single layer, a skill that has proven invaluable in my subsequent projects. Gifted to my train-loving grandsons, these bags, adorned with vinyl cut by my reliable older Cricut Explore, remain a nostalgic symbol of my crafting journey and the joy it brings to others
