The Cricut Joy has been, well, a joy to use. I love its compact size and the smart products that don’t require a mat to cut. I found some creativity and am sharing these fun and easy Cricut Joy ideas for tea towels, wine glasses, and coffee mugs.
Making tea towels with the Cricut Joy is quick and easy. I created a number of tea towels to put in gift baskets for friends and strangers for a local knock and wine group.
Not familiar with knock and wine? A group is usually started on Facebook, locals join, chat, and interact with each other. Gift baskets are put together and delivered to people from the group.
This weekend I delivered 12 baskets to women around town most of whom I’ve never met.
It was awesome fun and most of them received a personalized tea towel and personalized wine glasses or coffee mugs in their basket.
The Save Water Drink Wine holographic tea towels were a huge success!
Watch the above video to see how I created these really cool tea towels.
