So I was over at my parents' house for the holiday and my mom (who is a huge craft lady) recently picked up a Cricut Machine. Well this thing cuts, designs, creates, takes uploaded graphics, you name it. Of course, the first thing I think of is "Cutie Marks". While I like to think my hands are somewhat steady, I was exploring the potential of overlays for damaged marks (or even custom marks).

So I took a bait behind over that I had already done some base coat work on and we gave it a test drive. We used the vinyl options (regular and glitter) to see how they would look. Still some practicing and ideas to do but the possibilities seem endless.

I was just curious if anyone else uses a Cricut for cutey marks and if they felt it was worth it/helped?

So the machine printed it directly on the pony? Or it printed and then you applied it to the pony? I haven't looked at these machines in at least 6 years. I've lost track of what they can do now...

The machine prints/cuts the vinyl, and then applied to the pony - I had to do the smoothing for the vinyl to catch, and I had not sealed anything on the pony. I think I went a little too big with the print but I could shrink them down further. It was very interesting and neat, I just need to figure out what else I would like to do with the machine. As amazing as it was, I can't justify buying a machine like this JUST for cutie marks :lolpony:

There’s lots of things you can do with it! Aside from pony re-vamping. ;p

I have a lot of friends who make custom mugs/travel mugs, tee shirts, car decals, wine glasses, cut intricate fabric designs, stuff for classrooms... the list goes on. Basically anything you want a Cricut can probably do it.
