How can I make money using my cricut machine?

Good morning! Today we are going to tackle another commonly asked Cricut question that I get all the time. How can I make money using my Cricut machine? Can I use my Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore Air 2 or even the Cricut Joy to bring in an income? The answer is YES! Absolutely! My cutting machines have literally paid for themselves many times over. Let me show you how. :)


Before we begin, in full disclaimer…I am not an expert in copyright or copyright laws. Please go to the Cricut website directly to find out how you can use images from Cricut in products you sell.

From Cricut:

Can I sell my crafts made with my Cricut cutting machine?

Yes. Our products and offerings are designed for personal use. The Angel policy is an additional benefit designed for those who wish to sell their creations: Cricut Angel Policy. We believe the Angel Policy is the most generous policy in our industry. The Angel Policy authorizes you to sell up to 10,000 completed projects annually using cuts made with Cricut products.

Read all the details here.

TIP: Cricut Access is a must if you want to make & sell things using your Cricut machine. All images that are part of the Cricut Image Library Subscription fall under the Cricut Angel Policy. :)

You can also purchase commercial licenses from other designers that you can upload into Design Space & then make with your Cricut machine. Again, always consult with the designer & find out exactly how their images can be used. Also, never use google to find designs or fonts to use for things you sell. That will almost always be a violation of copyright laws.

So what can you make with your Cricut to sell? Let me show you 7 ways you can make money with your Cricut machine. :)

1. Signs

Signs are all the rage! Annnnnd signs are so easy to make with your Cricut machine. This farmhouse hello would be so easy to make & sell.

2. Wood Crafts

Wood crafts have been popular for years, and I think they always will be. I love using scrap wood out of my garage to turn into something cute to sell. My daughter & I have a booth at a local flea market. We recently made these easy lawn dice using some wood blocks & vinyl cut with my Cricut to sell there. :)

3. Pillow Covers

Just look in any handmade shop online or in store & you will always find pillows or pillow covers for sale. Using some iron-on you can make tons of cute pillows to sell so easily. This hello pillow was so simple to make with my Cricut Joy. :)

4. Custom house numbers (or mailbox numbers)

Making vinyl decals to sell is so easy! House numbers for mailboxes or doors are always a hit. :) You can also make vinyl decals and labels for car windows or for home organization. The possibilities are endless!

5. Party Favors & Decorations

One way to bring in extra income is party planning & set up. Making party decorations and favors with your Cricut can help you turn a clients special event into something they’ll never forget. To see this cute graduation party click the picture below. :)

6. Personalized Tumblers or Water Bottles

Tumblers are always a great go to when you are thinking of making items to sell. Teacher’s gifts are a hot item right now, too! So these teacher tumblers would be perfect. :)

7. Customized Hair Bows

Football season will be here before we know it. Annnnnd these customized hair bows are easy to make & sell for the big game & to help your clients show their school spirit. :)

These are just a few of the ideas of completed items that you could sell that were all made using a Cricut machine. Can you think of any others? What has worked well for you? Let me know. :)
