Thanks to Cricut for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
My daughters love crafts and using my Cricut machine. If you've ever wondered “What is the Cricut machine and what can I do with it?” it's so versatile. You can do anything and everything from making greeting cards to t-shirts to home decor projects. You can use the machine to cut shapes and custom vector files.
We used the Cricut® Washi Sheets, Gold Foil Classic and empty prescription pill containers. The final containers can be used for storage or travel: jewelry, cotton swaps, small makeup brushes, safety pins, whatever you need!
When I say “we” I mean she did 95% of the work.
Here are the steps below.
DIY Washi Tape Containers – Easy Tween Project
- Create new file in Cricut Design Space. Place a shape; we used a 1″ circle for the top of the pill container.
- Place Cricut® Washi Sheets, Gold Foil Classic onto Cricut Cutting Mat and load the mat in Cricut Explore Air.
- Send file to print.
- Follow on-screen directions to finish.
- Once the image is cut to the washi, remove mat. Make sure to save your project when you're through.
- Remove the negative image you won't be using. This is called weeding, but it's large enough you really don't need the weeder for this.
- With one of the Cricut® Washi Sheets, Gold Foil Classic sheets, you'll need to trim two 1 1/2″ wide strips about 4 inches long to cover the container.
- Remove the backing for each side strip and adhere to the container.
- Trim strips from the remaining sheet to cover the top of the container.
- You're ready to rock that container anywhere!
