Can I use the cricut machine for this??

I am looking for a machine that I can use to make sticker letters in pretty fonts to use on glass ornaments as gifts for my family and friends, would the cricut machine do the job and is it a good investment??

Thanks for your help!

  • I dont have a Cricut (yet, still working on it, lol!) but I think it would be able to do that for you. It can do tons of other things too, so if you are a crafter , especially a scrapbooker I think it would be a great investment.

  • The Cricut Expression is the one you need.

  • If you buy a Cricut, check out the various models, some only cut up up to a certain size. I have a Personal Cutter, it won't cut the larger sizes the Expression does, but I don't have the money for the Expression. The model you get depends on what you want to do with it and how much your budget is.

  • i have the gypsy and the personal cutter and can do just about anything that the expression can do. I do have a Expression but its for the cricut classes i teach ... Much easier to leave at the store, way to hard to lug around :)

  • Make sure that the ornaments are not too round or have too many edges or the vinyl material won't stick well.
