I love creating with my Cricut Maker, and I'm sure you do, too (or will soon)! Because of this incredible machine, I have been able to create so much more than any other craft tool I own. The Cricut Maker can do so many amazing things, that I wanted to share my top 5 fan-favorite Cricut Maker projects with you to get you inspired to make something with your machine!

Top 5 Cricut Maker Projects

It was fun going through all of my older Cricut Maker project posts to see which ones were your favorites. They are all so different, relatively simple to make, and all of the projects (except the doll clothes) are FREE to create with Cricut Access!

Paper Succulent Wreath

I'm not good with plants, so the best way I've found to bring greenery into my home (without feeling guilty) is to go faux! The paper succulents used on this wreath are surprisingly easy to make, and there are only four different succulent patterns cut out of multiple shades of green cardstock to add dimension!

Maker Tools needed: Fine-Point Blade

DIY Flower-Topped Gift Box

I really enjoy creating custom gift boxes, and this Flower-Topped Gift Box is one of my favorites! I originally made this box for Mother's Day, but you can change it up using different papers, textures, and colors to fit any occasion. It is a lot of fun to make, and sometimes the gift is all in the presentation!! 

Maker Tools needed: Fine-Point Blade, Scoring Wheel, Pen 

DIY Watercolor Journal

If you're into doodling, painting, or drawing, this Watercolor Journal is for you! The covers of the journal are chipboard, which is cut using the Maker Knife Blade. Since I am using it for watercolor artwork, I saw it only fitting to use place some watercolor patterned iron-on vinyl on the covers!

DIY Leather Passport Covers with Cricut

My family is all about seeing the world, so now we travel in style using our Leather Passport Covers! You can cut all kinds of leather with the Maker, but I decided to go with the faux leather for this project. After the cover is sewn together, you can customize the front using iron-on vinyl!

Maker Tools needed: Fine-Point Blade, possibly Deep-Cut Blade or Knife Blade for thicker leather

18" Doll Clothes Made Easy with the Cricut Maker

Did you know that there are doll clothes patterns that can be cut with the Cricut Maker? I'm not really the best at cutting out tiny patterns by hand, so let's just say that life has just become a lot easier if you have someone in your life with a 18" doll that needs some new clothes! I used Cricut Fabric in coordinating colors and patterns to make the wardrobe pieces interchangeable to create multiple outfit options, and then customized the pieces further using iron-on vinyl!
