Crafters of all skill levels continue to rave about their Air 2! But today I’m sharing 5 Reasons Why I Love my Cricut Explore Air™ 2 along with a fun and easy DIY craft.
In addition to being a top craft machine that cuts everything from cardstock, vinyl, iron-on, as well as specialty materials like glitter paper, cork, and bonded fabric… it cuts over 100 materials! Make cards, iron-on graphics, home decor!
Choosing from thousands of images and fonts, and ready-to-make projects like I did for a few of my projects, the Air 2 is easy to use.
5 THINGS I LOVE ABOUT MY CRICUT EXPLORE AIR 2
1. Easy to Use
Like all Cricut products, the Cricut Explore Air 2 is easy to use. I always think it’s going to be hard, but they do a great job of walking through the ready-to-make projects in the Design Space. Depending on your project, you’ll be instructed on which blade or maybe a pen to put in each housing.
After creating a few projects with their prompts and help, you’ll pick up the confidence to create your own designs from scratch.
I also find it easy to cut so many different materials by using their custom dial. This way it’s cut perfectly every time!
Cutting out the SWEET onto brown vinyl was a cinch!
2. Using the Design Space App / Bluetooth
I had forgotten my laptop, but that didn’t stop me from being able to start and complete my project.
I was able to connect to my Cricut wirelessly from my phone. If you don’t have the Explore Air 2, but own the older Explore, you can purchase a Bluetooth wireless adapter.
3. Quick Gift Ideas
One of the 5 Things I Love about my Cricut Explore Air 2 is how I can whip up an easy gift idea in a matter of minutes.
Using one of their designs, I simply cut it out on brown vinyl and applied to brown lunch sacks. I was able to make a cute DIY gift, by taking an ordinary brown bag to the cutest gift.
I placed homemade cookies inside, added a cute ribbon and just like that, I had a thoughtful custom made, handmade gift.
Make up a few and hand them out as goodie bags or party favors.
4. Create Home Decor Projects
One of my favorite things to do with my Air 2 machine is to create home decor.
I love the custom pillows and dishtowels I made for seasonal decor. This makes it inexpensive to decorate and they also make great DIY gift ideas. See all my Cricut projects.
5. Cricut Explore Air 2 Colors & Price
Can you believe all the color choices? There is something for everyone! You can purchase in a bundle or just the machine. Bundles come with many of the materials so you can get creating right away!
