Hey teaching friends and TGIF! As you know, I have teamed up with the fine folks over at Cricut to show some fun things you can do with the Cricut Explore One in your classroom! And as those of you who have followed me for a while know: I am not crafty. HAHAHAA! No seriously.
But the good news? The Cricut Explore One makes it easy to be crafty even when you aren’t crafty at all.
I decided this morning I wanted to make a fun Star Student poster for a classroom. So, I whipped out the Cricut Explore One and used the Design Studio to find some star-themed borders. I cut them out easily and effortlessly. Can you imagine cutting out those intricate borders by hand? No thanks! Using the extra scraps from the border in star shapes was an added bonus. 🙂
Check out this video showing you how quiet it is while cutting:
But I really wanted to try out the color and cut features on my machine. Another machine I had didn’t have this cool feature, so I was curious how it worked.
Basically you can add hand-drawn images or texts to your projects using fine tip pens, and then cut out your project as well! It is pretty sweet!
Watch it go!
The best part? You can create anything your heart desires!
I love having a Star Student Poster in the classroom so that each child is treated like the star he or she really is during the school year!
