Create custom crafts in a snap with Cricut Joy

With Cricut Joy, it's a snap to create custom cards, pro-looking labels, and personalised decals. We put the machine to the test with three crafty kiddos to see just how it works.

You only need to watch the DIY videos for the Cricut Joy once to be intrigued by this tiny multi purpose machine and the myriad of things it can do. We wanted to take it for a test run to see if it makes the cut when it comes to kids and their crafts.

Ostensibly, the Cricut Joy is one of those handy gadgets to have in your craft supply cupboard. It’s small, compact, cute to look at, and with the capacity to create cards, stickers and labels with relative ease.

What is the Cricut Joy?

It’s a simple principle, the Cricut Joy is a craft and cutting machine. Using card stock, vinyl sticker sheets that come with your starter kit (and are also available to restock from popular retailers), as well as cutting accessories and pens, you can start creating pretty much immediately.

Make a card, any card.

If you have kids, you’ve probably assisted in handmade birthday cards, christmas cards, father’s day cards and every other card imaginable over the years, and Cricut Joy will absolutely take their card making up a notch. With this machine you really can make the perfect card at a moment’s notice.

But it doesn’t stop there, you can also design and craft stickers and laminates of all shapes, sizes and descriptions. Mobile phone and iPad decals, stickers to adorn back-to-school books and any number of labels for personalisation and organisation!
