BOUJEE Cricut Home Decor using Dollar Tree Items
hey diy queens welcome back to my channel i cry with kayla if you are new welcome and today we have some qriket projects you can make with
items. I'm excited to show you guys because you know I'm the
tree diy queen and I love making bougie with
items for a cheap price so let's pair our
cricut and our
items and see what we can do today. qriket is a smart cutting machine that allows you to create personalized projects from hundreds of materials. It works with a software called Design Space that comes free with your machine.
Here you can create your project and browse hundreds of images and fonts. Once you have created your design, Design Space will send it to your machine to be cut here the inside look at design space the free software that comes with your machine you also choose the image font or project and design space will turn it into the cut out send to your machine we will be working with a qriket explorer 3. let's get started ht in the first project for this first project i took some popular cylinder bases from the
tree and i also took this cute little little cylinder face from the
tree and put a raised one around it To give it a look I glued them together to make this I also used my
Cricut and some gold vinyl so let's take a look.
I opened Qriket Design Space and checked the
decor section and had this rectangular vase that you can choose or customize and it also tells you what materials you need to cut it fortunately this vase size was the perfect size for the
tree vase, and I use gold vinyl to make this. Your
Cricut will show what needs to be done to load or unload the paper. You can also place your materials on the
Cricut Design Space. QRIKET Design Space is very easy to use. Whatever you tell it will do, it's your choice to use with or without a matte that's why i love it's so much and you can do this all on your smartphone what i'm doing right now once your project is done.
Be sure to use your
Cricut tools to remove all excess vinyl from your design for this vase and this design will complete two vases in one cut. Next, grab some transfer tape.
Cricut also has an option for a tackier transfer tape, but this one will do. Remove your transfer tape and gently place it on top of your design When placing your transfer tape on your design you want to make sure you apply a lot of pressure when
using your squeegee. This tool helps the transfer tape stick to your design by applying pressure to the backing. Also, it helps the transfer tape stick to your design Your design for your vase, this was very, very easy.
I just used my hands and placed it the way I could best when you apply the design. Make sure you put pressure on the vase yes you can and if you have air bubbles then make sure you go in with your squeegee tool and smooth it out so you get a very nice and smooth look after you do the squeegee have exerted pressure. Now it's time to peel off your design, if you didn't apply enough pressure you'll know it won't stick to the transfer tape, but when you did it will come off nice and easily, just like this, You see I have some air bubbles.
I'm just going to take my squeegee tool and smooth these out and let's take a look at the final look for project two. I chose these cute cylinder shaped wine glasses from the
tree. I think they are perfect because you can also personalize them with any logo you have for your
home and I love bar menus this is definitely a statement for my bar menu because it's personalized for me and when my guests come in , they say oh she has some nice glasses, some nice vases so let's get right to this second project for this second project am looking in qriket design sp ace for a monogram that will represent my
home and will make a statement .
This script monogram wreath was the perfect choice. It was big, but you can change the design to suit your style. The letter R represents our last name on our glasses so they can be monogrammed to match our
home next hit make it and then I found out you can move the letters around so you can save on vinyl paper hit next and then we will be putting our material on permanent vinyl we will be
using black permanent vinyl and then your gauge will flash on your
cricut letting you know to load your paper now. You'll want to grab your weeding tool so you can remove those little tiny bits of your design I love my weeding tool because it's so satisfying to detach the design from the paper, I found it easier to pick off the larger pieces first and then use them The smaller Design-Str Grip transfer tape is a lot harder to remove from the tape than regular transfer tape, it picks up your design more easily, but you have to use a lot more pressure when
using your squeegee tool to make it come off, you face making sure you go over it 5 and 6 times to keep the design on the glass, gently remove your design and make sure your design sticks to your wine glass Graduation Project I wanted to make sure my guests felt like they were they come to this beautiful boutique.
Hey, give me your coat and then the hanger says welcome on it. Well, let me stop telling you all the details. Check it out for our graduation project. You need this smart iron and the color white you also need to snag your mini press. I opened the Qriket design space and I saw this greeting in the featured images that you can customize to your liking for the final project, you can also put embroidery there or a monogram, but I chose Welcome for my guests to feel feel welcome when they come to my house. Also, I measured my hangers and then adjusted the size in the Qriket design area If you adjust your materials, make sure you toggle it to mirror, then set your materials to smart iron-on.
The ad will tell you when to load it, which we will load without a mat it will just feed itself into the cricket here's an up close and personal look at the qriket explorer 3 and how the needle works works i love my qriket explorer 3 because it's plug and play you tell it what design you want and then just listen to what it is it tells you to set the materials set the design do this and you will well don't let this overwhelm you it's very easy to do it tells you all you need to do now we're going to celebrate our wedding tool and weed our design and these are lowercase letters so make sure you pick each piece with your Weeding tool out, now it's time to grab our mini press.
I love the mini press because it is very small and so cute that the mini press has three settings. Make sure you choose the right setting for your hanger. I chose setting three and it worked perfectly. Now grab your design and flip it over making sure the shiny side is up and place it on your hanger Nicer on the hanger Now that it's heated up I place my design on the hanger. Now apply your mini press gently and let it heat up the design so you can remove it very easily. Carefully remove your design and here is your final look, which includes all the projects for today.
