The Cricut Explore Air 2 gives arts and crafts projects a power-up and could be your secret weapon for creating original Christmas gifts and decorations.
If you’ve ever entered a Hobbycraft store and been left perplexed by the fly DIY choices for creative types then the Cricut Explore Air 2 could help you scythe through the selection.
The machine can cut over 100 different materials from cardboard to vinyl, and even tougher propositions like leather and glitter paper, in an instant.
Thanks to an accompanying app packed with design ideas for gifts, decorations, fashion accessories and more, it can automatically cut your cloth to fit by customising creations however you want.
The Cricut does all the hard work, delivering precise cuts on the tiniest and most intricate designs to bigger projects such as home décor and wall art, always with professional end results.
Personalisation options extend to adding text and switching up patterns with your favourite colours or picking themed artistic styles and patterns like vintage or Christmas.
Also bundled with the machine is Design Space software that helps you add images, upload your own design or take on one of the many step-by-step ‘Make It Now’ projects already pre-loaded.
Once selected, use the device’s ‘Smart Set’ dial to select the material you wish to use, press go and the Cricut adjusts its speed and pressure to adapt to the material… all while you put your feet up.
