Good morning! I am so excited to tackle one of the most common questions I get asked about my Cricut. What is the best beginner project to start with when using a Cricut machine? Annnnd if you know me at all, you know that my favorite (and the easiest project to start off with!) would be vinyl with iron-on being a close second. So, I decided to tackle not one but two baseball inspired crafts that would both be a great (& easy!) beginner craft to tackle, if you just purchased a Cricut machine. One project uses vinyl ,and the other one uses iron-on. Let’s get started! :)
