Maker Space: Introducing the Cricut Maker and EasyPress

Didn’t get all the crafting equipment you wanted over the holiday season? The Farmington Libraries can help! The Maker Space is now home to the Cricut Maker and the Cricut EasyPress. The Cricut Maker is a cutting machine which, with the correct blade and mat, can cut a range of material, including cardstock, vinyl, fabric, leather, and balsa wood.

I inaugurated the Cricut Maker by trying out the sample project- a cheerful greeting card- included with the purchase of the equipment.

I also tried out the Cricut EasyPress by embellishing a canvas shopping bag with a pre-cut iron-on vinyl design. While it took longer than expected for the vinyl to adhere to the bag, the process was easy and the finished project looked great!

Want to take your DIY projects to the next level? Keep an eye on the library website for programs and training sessions to help you get comfortable with the Cricut Maker and EasyPress this spring.
