Cricut Projects to Sell & Cricut Business Ideas for your Explore Air 2

Now that you have your Cricut Explore Air 2 machine, learned your way around Design Space, and completed some projects, you’re looking for Cricut projects to sell and Cricut business ideas to earn some extra money. Making Cricut vinyl projects to sell for beginners and experienced crafters alike are just one way to make money. The challenge is standing out from the crowd but it’s not impossible. There are so many Cricut ideas that can be found if you just know where to go and how to get inspired.

Let me start out by saying that I love the Cricut machine so much that I included it in my post, 10 Fabulous Products For Women That Make Life Better.

With that in mind, let’s start thinking of all the Cricut projects to sell to make money at home with your Cricut Explore Air 2 Machine.

If you want to accelerate your Cricut business, check out “Diving in…30 Days to Your Cricut Business” by Christine Schinagl for step-by-step instructions on what you need to do to start your Cricut business today.

Cricut Vinyl Projects

There are tons of easy DIY Cricut projects you can make and sell with vinyl and this may be a good place to start if you’re a beginner. You can make vinyl products such as vinyl signs for walls and frames, vinyl decals for cars and laptop cases, fun sayings for tumblers, mugs, wine glasses, and water bottles just to name a few. You just need to be unique in order to stand out from other sellers. For instance, you can still sell a popular item like vinyl pantry labels, but you can differentiate yourself with the font you choose, or the types or quantity of labels you provide, or even an image you display on the label.

Cricut Vinyl Project Resouces

Vinyl like this popular and inexpensive permanent adhesive-backed vinyl sheets pack is a really great deal for your Cricut vinyl projects. I bought this multi-colored pack of 40, 12×12 vinyl sheets months ago and I haven’t even used it all up yet! It’s equivalent to this Oracle 651 permanent vinyl starter pack but for less money per sheet.

In addition, having access to fonts like this popular handwritten font bundle is invaluable because you get the rights to use them to make unlimited projects and products for sale.

If you haven’t set up a free account yet at Creative Market, do so! They have 1,000’s of fonts and graphics for your projects. Plus, every week they offer six free items for download! Check out this week’s free downloads below:

I also like TheHungryJPG who offers a weekly freebie deal as well and $1 deals all with commercial licenses meaning you can use the fonts, graphics, illustrations, and more on your Cricut products for sale.

Want access to over 30,000 images, fonts, and projects for endless possibilities? Checkout Cricut’s Access Plans to see if one of them meets your needs. For instance, with Cricut’s Premium Access Plan (that’s the one I have), you will get 50% off digital orders on Cricut.com and in Cricut Design Space.

Oh, the things you could make with your Cricut and vinyl that you could sell to your friends and family, at local craft shows, consignment shops, Etsy, Facebook Groups, and eBay!

Cricut Business Ideas at Gift Shops

You can also check your local gift shops to see if anyone else has similar items as to what you want to create with your Cricut Explore Air 2–or just to see what items are selling there. Big card shops like Hallmark that have an extensive gift section can provide inspiration for your Cricut business. Plus, if the items are for sale there, then there’s a good chance there’s a market for those items.

If you decide to create similar items, think of ways you can make yours a little bit more unique.  Let them reflect your own personal style; you don’t want to be a copycat.  Perhaps you can charge a bit more if you embellish your creations more than your competitors.

Cricut Business Ideas at Craft Fairs

Your local craft fairs are a great way to see if your items are popular. If they are popular offline, chances are, they will be popular online. Be sure to check out what these products are selling for and look to see if you can make improvements to these product ideas for your own creations.

Pricing Your Cricut Projects

Check mega websites such as eBay and Etsy to find out what other sellers are charging for their products. You will want to price your items accordingly but make sure you leave room for profit. Many sellers are pricing their products too low. It’s hard to imagine these sellers are making any money at all after expenses.

You can figure out your cost of cut or printed material by using this simple free vinyl calculator, and your cost of material for any surface by using this free material calculator.

If you think you make an improvement on an existing product and make it unique, consider buying it so you can really check it out. By no means copy someone else’s creation, but there’s always room for improvement on an existing idea.

However you end up pricing your products, you want to keep track of your expenses. I like cute inexpensive (or free) printables too for such things as habit trackers (check out my free morning routine checklist), but in this case, I recommend going with a digital product. You can create your own Excel spreadsheet or purchase one that’s already done for you like this inexpensive digital expense tracker from TimeSavingTemplates.


Fun and Profit

The fun projects you can make and sell with a Cricut machine are pretty much endless. You are only limited by your imagination. Plus, with built-in Bluetooth for wireless cutting with your PC, Mac, iPad, or iPhone, you can design when you want, where you want!

Don’t have a Cricut Explore Air 2 machine yet? This Cricut Machine Bundle Package might be something you want to consider. Just add some transfer paper and you have everything you need to be creating the same day you get it!
