I wanted to show you the versatility of Cricut by cutting something a little unconventional. Most people think of cutting paper (which is also super fun! See how here) with their Cricut! I cut faux leather and it turned out pretty dang cool! I also used it to create a stencil for clay. You can really do so many things.

I started by cutting some cardstock as a stencil for my clay. See how simple it is to create a stencil here.
After cutting the stencil out, I used it to cut my clay. I just rolled a ball of clay then smashed it flat before cutting it!
I baked the octagon for 15 minutes at 275 degrees.
While I did this and waited for it to cool, I cut my faux leather with the Cricut! I just put the leather on the mat and cut away! I will say I kind of had to guide it just a bit because it didn’t stick super well to the mat. But it did a pretty dang good job!
Then I used some Mod Podge to attach the fabric to the clay. I set it under a heavy thing for about an hour so it dried flat.
That’s it! I loved how this turned out and the Cricut made it so simple. When you heard of the Cricut did you think, ‘Oh I could use that for a clay and leather project!’ Because I sure didn’t! I have been so inspired just by having the Cricut at my house. The ideas just keep on comin’!
