Personalized Gift Basket

How To Personalize A Gift Basket

With your Cricut Maker 

Do you need a quick gift? But you want it to look well thought out? 
Or do you need a budget friendly gift that looks like its worth so much more?

Check out my latest Video I show you how to personalize budget friendly items that won't break the bank but will look like they are worth so much more.

Here is a list of Items I used

I used Cricut Design Space to design the names and monograms. The Cursive font is Babette its free for access members If your not an access member I highly recommend it for $9.99 a month you get access to over 75,000 images and fonts you also get 10% off your online orders 

For the monogram I used Monogramos from Dafont its completely free.

I used my Cricut Maker to cut out all my decals. I chose Premium vinyl as well as Glitter Vinyl for my cut settings and used my fine point blade. I love the fact that my Maker can handle my project no matter the difficulty for example It cuts all my vinyl and all my wood projects. I don't need multiple die cutting machines. :) 

You can shop Cricut Home for all your Cricut needs.

Let's talk about this basket! I could not believe I found this for only $8 at Michaels I just love it so much. it was originally $20 but was on sale for half off making it $10 on top of that they currently had a coupon for 20% off your total including sale items making it $8. It was the perfect Basket for the job. I decided to use white Premium vinyl for the front chalk board so it looks like I personalized it with chalk. I adore the way this came out.

 I found this umbrella from Walmart for $3 

Here are a few good ones on amazon that I think would be fun to personalize 

Clear Bubble Umbrella 
Black Umbrella 
Inverted Umbrella 

There are two really good spots to apply your decal one being the strap that keeps the umbrella closed. as you can see I used a cursive font for this one. And the Other being one of the panels in the front of the umbrella I use a circle monogram for this one. You can do one or the other or Both like I did here. I used Permanent Premium Vinyl I allow it to dry for 24 hours before I close it back up to insure my vinyl will hold up.

Who doesn't love a candle?  If you haven't smelled Magnolia Bloom from pier 1 you're missing  out.
 I used permanent Premium Vinyl on the lid of the candle in the color white.

If you don't have a Pier 1 near you 
Check out your local Tj Maxx They always have some great candles as well 

Another favorite candle of mine is Marshmallow Fireside from bath N Body Works.

 This cup is so adorable I love how the font makes it pop.
For this project I used Cricut Glitter Vinyl to personalize it. I highly recommend using Cricut strong transfer tape when it comes so Glitter Vinyl it picks it up like a dream.

I found this 
Mason Jar With Straw at target dollar spot it came in a 2pk for $3

I think these Tumblers on Amazon would make a great choice when creating these baskets.

Can you believe this lamp is only $5.99 at Target?

This was such a fun project I just love the way it came out and the possibility's are endless. I think this would be so cute covered in floral :)

It's perfect for a dorm room!
To see how I created the Circle Monogram Check out my YouTube video Below

last but not least I used my smaller Cricut Easy Press 2 6x7 for Personalizing the towel .
It's such a Perfect size for projects like this .
I set my easypress to 315F for 30sec Cricut recommends that you pre press your item for 5 sec this will pull out any moisture and warm the surface I them pressed the iron on for 30sec then flipped the item over and applied heat for another 15sec on the back of the towel. I did a cold peel.

I think any collage student living in a dorm would love to have a personalized towel.

There is so many affordable items such as these so feel free to switch it up with appropriate gifts for whatever the occasion, Mothers day, Fathers day, Birthday, Graduation (as I did here) etc.
I hope this gives you inspiration for your next project!

Thank you so much for checking out my blog xoxo CrystalAnn

My Review Of The Cricut EasyPress 2 

 I was ecstatic when Cricut announced the first Cricut EasyPress. It was a game changer for the crafting community. Brilliant from the design to the functionality!  More Heat. I didn't think it could get any better but Cricut wasn't done. The Cricut EasyPress 2 is more awesome than before with temps as high as 400F I could now sublimate and Press more Iron on Materials than before.
More Sizes And More Colors.The Cricut EasyPress 2 is now available in three sizes 6"X7", 9"X9" and 12"X10". And It's also available in Raspberry, Gold, Pink, and Mint. 
 I own the 6"X7" Its perfect for onesies and small projects. I have even used it to add Iron on to coffee mugs. I also own the 9"X9" I use it for my t-shirt's and larger projects. 

Here are a few videos I have done with the Cricut EasyPress 2

Cricut Maker Review

Cricut Maker Review 

Is the Cricut Maker worth the upgrade? what if I'm a beginner? What if I don't sew or cut wood?
I get a-lot of questions when it comes to the Maker and since I have owned my Maker for over two years I thought It would be a good time to tell you my thoughts on it.
When Cricut first announced the Maker I was so excited and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Fabric? Wood? say what! Two things I absolutely love to play with I just knew this machine was going to fulfill all my hopes and dreams. 
The Design is stunning I love how sleek and smooth it looks. You can tell a lot of thought went into every detail from a spot to hold you phone/Ipad to a USB. The storage got bigger and the pen holder/storage got better. 

The Maker Currently has 3 Adaptive Tools outside of the Standard blade and 4 different Mats available.
The Rotary Blade  The Knife Blade Scoring Wheel 

Standard Grip  Light Grip Strong Grip Fabric Mat

The Maker is so easy to use and setup it really is a…

WHAT CAN I PUT INFUSIBLE INK ON? Cricut has created some product's (Blanks) that are compatible with Infusible Ink such as shirts, totes and coasters. Just look for the sticker that says compatible with Cricut Infusible Ink.
