I’ve always wanted a Cricut machine. If you don’t know much about the machine all I can tell you is that it’s amazeballs!!! Well, it’s amazeballs if you’re a crafty person. This machine cuts paper in much the same way a printer prints on paper. Think a printer whose ink cartridge is an Exacto knife!!! You download images from Cricut’s site and voila can cut one of millions of images on anything that’s .8mm or under (basically the thickness of a cereal box).
BIG FAN, so when I got the opportunity to host their infomercial I was beyond excited… mostly because they were giving me a Cricut machine for FREE!!!! Who doesn’t love free stuff?
So, I like to push the boundaries and since I didn’t pay for the machine, I figured if I broke it, I wouldn’t be pissed that I wasted the money! Soooooo, I put a mirror into the machine to see if I could etch it!!!!! It worked! I was amazed. Astounded. BEYOND excited!!! And, so too were the people at Cricut. They didn’t even know that it would work!
Then, I proceeded to etch all sort of cute things on mirrored coasters… monocles, pipes, opera glasses…
