25 DIY Christmas Gifts You Can Make with Your Cricut Maker 3

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cricut. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love to make DIY Christmas gifts for my loved ones. There is something special about being able to make something that is personalized especially for someone. The Cricut Maker 3 makes it crazy easy to make all kinds of gifts and so today I’m sharing with you 25 projects that I think would make some fun Christmas gifts.

I loved my Cricut Maker and after having the Cricut Maker 3 for a few months now I feel like it’s a definite improvement over a machine that I already loved. The Cricut Maker 3 still has the great versatility of the Cricut Maker but with a couple of great improvements:

  • you can use smart materials without a mat
  • you can now make cuts up to 12 feet long with the smart materials
  • can cut faster than the Cricut Maker

One of my favorite features of the Cricut Maker 3 is that you can add on the Roll Holder to hold the Smart Materials. The Roll Holder keeps the materials lined up nicely for the cut and then has a built in trimmer so that you can a nice clean cut on a vinyl roll after the Maker is finished with your cut.
