Have you recently got a Cricut Maker 3? If yes, find out the 6 best Cricut Maker 3 projects in this blog. It’s been several years since I started using this Maker 3, and my overall experience has been great. When I was a beginner, I drew inspiration for my art from my imagination. Apart from this, I also found many ideas available on the internet.

During this time, I loved to modify already existing designs that I found on the internet. Since I never wanted to make something that looked exactly the same as a ready-made project, I tried to create my project as unique as possible.

As a result, I learned many things that have helped me move forward in my crafting career. So, I’m going to share some projects I made on Cricut Maker 3. Join me on my journey, and let’s create something extraordinary.

1.  Bookmark

I am a bookworm, and I love reading fiction and inspiring novels. Being an avid reader, I often fall asleep at night while reading the book. And the next day, when I woke up, I couldn’t recall the page I read last night. I know most books come with a bookmark, but I lost it somewhere. Don’t know where I kept it.

Anyway, I know how to make a bookmark better than before. So, I started designing a bookmark on Cricut Design Space software. Thanks to Cricut Maker 3, which helped me a lot in cutting the vinyl precisely. The final result is in front of you. Hope you want to give it a try!

2.  Bridesmaid Memory Box

After my wedding, I wanted to do something for my cousins or friends who accompanied me on my wedding day. It took weeks, but I couldn’t decide what to give or not. Finally, I asked my husband if he had any suggestions. He told me to make a personalized gift to make it memorable for them. To me, this was one of the best Cricut Maker 3 project ideas I had received from my husband. Hence, I thought of designing a box that was filled with personalized goodies. For this, I used a wooden box and added vinyl decals that were cut on Maker 3.

3.  Wall Art

One day, I was surfing the internet to find the best Cricut Maker 3 projects. I found a lot of ideas, but I found nothing that was beginner-friendly. Meanwhile, one of my school friends, “Jerry,” called me to make a fabulous wall art for his personal room. He himself chose the phrase “Born This Way”.

Since I found it easy and simple, I decided to give it a try. The font is the most important thing when adding text to DIY projects. Hence, I chose the font called “Tango Regular” and I used all 7 colors of vinyl and cut the exact size of strips. Next, I placed the strips one by one, and finally, Cricut did its work!

4.  Mug

The mug is one of the best Cricut Maker 3 projects I have ever made. But I had to buy a Cricut mug press along with a mug because a cutting machine can cut the design, but it will not transfer the design to your mug. In addition, you can’t use the mug press on any mug and hence you will always need a sublimated mug.

Despite this, Cricut also sells these mugs, so if you want to make one, you must collect these two basic items, which include a mug press and mug. After that, the process is simple. Just create the design and cut it on the machine. Rest assured, the mug press will help you transfer the design to the mug.

5.  Birthday Banner Flag

Last month, I made this birthday flag on my Daughter’s first birthday. To cherish the moment, I organized a grand party due to which I had to decorate my home. Therefore, I made this simple and beautiful flag using Cricut’s smart material. You can also try different colors and sizes you like. These easy-to-make Cricut Maker 3 projects will transform any ideas that you want to make. So, what different project can you make with your Cricut Maker 3?

6.  T-Shirt

Soon, I am going to meet one of my youngest cousins. He is so dear to me, so I made this T-shirt with a catchy friend. Coming to the making process, I made this using iron-on vinyl, and I chose the dark red color. Although I cut the vinyl using my Maker 3, I needed an EasyPress machine to transfer it to the blank white T-shirt.
