We are back with week 3 of #MonthofMakes, daily prompts on Instagram Stories to help spark ideas to get you making! These are quick and easy ideas so that whether you are a beginner or an expert, everyone can join in.
You can also see what our fantastic Cricut Community has created by search #MonthofMakes on Instagram!
Here is a roundup of last week’s #MonthofMakes themes:
Day 16: Kindness
The gift of giving to be kind and giving to thank someone for kindness are both great reasons to make!
Paula from TheCraftyLass on Instagram created a beautiful piece of home décor with vinyl and kindness as the focus.
Paula used the font ‘DTC Bikini Babe’ for the text and a simple circle shape for the confetti pieces.

Birthday cakes are a great idea for the theme food and could be used on cards, bunting, party decorations and more! Abby from alex_in_wonderland__x on Instagram created their very own paper-made cake.

If using a Cricut machine isn’t magical enough, we wanted to share some mystic inspired projects too! Kristal Sparklechildlondon on Instagram created a bag of magic tricks using our Tote Bag Blanks and Infusible Ink!
Day 19: Motivation
Whether they are words of encouragement for you or for someone else, inspirational quotes can help you power through! We decorated a notebook for our big ideas!

Day 21: Under The Sea
This fun theme is great for bathroom décor and making with the kids! Zoe from Oodlesofcraft on Instagram created felt under the sea shapes that her kids could play with.

Day 22: Garden
When Spring and Summer arrive, it’s time to up our gardening game. Personalised plant pots, garden signs, and herb labels are a great idea for your garden. We created this plant pot décor using Permanent Vinyl as it’s UV and water-resistant for up to three years.
