Just got my wife one.
Her friend bought water bottles and did vinyl letters for the kids names on the bottle.
She used a Cricut. My wife wanted to do such things.
I bought her a Cricut Maker. Any good YouTubers for the Cricut Maker??

Anything cool I can do with this thing? It wasn’t cheap!

I can't speak for Cricut as my use is most likely much different.
Personally, I have a Graphtec that I primarily use to cut Cerakote masks and letter cutout as well.
I think a lot of the Cricut users do fabrics and T-shirts and the like.
Maybe have her look into YT for what ever type of project she contemplates.
One thing is to learn the software and to acquire relevant images.
I use ESTY and buy svg images then convert or manipulate with Corel Draw.
Imagine the Cricut software is much easier and flexible for home projects.
Good Luck.

My wife uses her Cricut quite heavily on a lot of different projects and her work turns out very nicely.

I will asked her if she has any suggestions to pass along.

Regards,

Rob

My wife makes me t-shirts all the time. She also made labels for my tool boxes. Now every drawer has what’s inside. It helps me to find stuff and put stuff away where it belongs.

Oh, she also made my logo and phone number for my equipment. I’ll have to get photos.

I bought a vinyl cutter from US Cutter for few hundred bucks so I could do larger things. It’s paid for itself many times over.

My very creative wife says there are a lot of very good resources on-line for tips and tricks, etc.

She said that the "Cricut Tips for Beginners and Beyond - Facebook" is good but so are a lot of other web-sites, user groups, forums, etc.

If she has a specific project in mind then search on key-words for it.

It sounds like a project / hobby that has a little bit of a learning curve but once you get the 'hang of it' as they say it gets easier.

Even Cricut's 'Design Space' application software has a lot of capability.
