Did you know IPDPL has a Cricut Maker available for patron use?
Maybe you have always wanted to try using a Cricut but never had the opportunity. Maybe you would like to learn a little more or even try it out for yourself before you commit to spending the money. Our "Create with Cricut" classes are the answer!
Each week, we will explore a different aspect of using the Cricut Maker, from designing an original project to creating vinyl stickers, personalized greeting cards, and iron-ons for totes, t-shirts, and more!
Week 1 - Getting StartedDuring this session, we will explore the world of Cricut, the different machines available and what they can do, and take a tour of Cricut Design Space, the software program that is used to design and create with the Cricut family of products.
Week 2 - CardmakingIn this session, we will explore the world of cardmaking. We will design and cut a simple greeting card and matching envelope from scratch using Cricut Design Space. We will also use the Cricut Card Mat to create a card using existing card blanks.
Week 3 - Adhesive VinylMaking a sticker has never been simpler! In this session, we will make simple stickers from adhesive vinyl, use the Cricut Maker to write and cut labels, and learn how to transfer our finished design to our final product.
Week 4 - Heat Transfer Vinyl and MoreCreating personalized apparel and many other things with heat transfer vinyl (iron-on). In this session, we will explore the world of iron-on vinyl and infusible ink. Hint - It's not just for t-shirts anymore!
