5 Minute Cricut Makeover - A Cheat's guide!


 I have long been admiring the Cricut Machines that you can buy with the lovely decoration on them, but really just can't justify the extra money to just so I can own one of them

A number of cricut owners have painted their machines with sprays or alcohol inks to make them pretty and many have also cut shapes in vinyl with their cricuts to decorate them. But I really wanted something that I could change if I wanted to without damaging or leaving marks or stains on my cricut. Which didn't leave many options until I found a removable gorgeous laptop skin that would look perfect! This one even has bling on it!
As you can see the skin was a little too large for the front of the machine, but I used this to my advantage and let it carry on right over the lid. All I did was carefully make a cut in the gap between the lid and front to allow it to open again.

My DD also loved this idea and did the same to her Baby Cricut.

So no more admiring others beautiful Cricuts for us, DD and I now have our own. If you have decorated your own cricuts please feel free to share the link in the comments below. We would love to see them.

 ***********************

I have had a couple of comments and emails regarding where I purchased the laptop skin from. I found them in our local discount store. 

If anyone is interested in this particular design and unable to find it, let me know, I can go and see if I can get more. I will only charge the cost of the item, Envelope and postage to your destination from Australia. I will accept payments via paypal only and any requests will be on a first come first served basis depending on availability.

UPDATE: On the laptop skins and availability Here.
