Cricut Cutter

Cricut Explore Air 2

A Cricut cutter cuts complex shapes and designs out of paper and vinyl.It does this mechanically and so can cut the same design over and over, and do it quickly, so you can make batches of identical, complicated cutouts in a shorter span of time, instead of having to cut a design out by hand over and over, which would be a lot slower, be more likely to results in mistakes...and hurt your hand! Cricut maintains a blog with inspiration for projects to try; our machine cuts paper and vinyl, so you can make complex paper cutout designs, customize your water bottle, make one-of-a-kind T-shirts, hats, and tote bags, print and design paper decorations and handouts...whatever you can imagine!
