A. We love to use the Cricut Maker, which cuts felt, fabric, leather, and wood! Cutting with felt on the Cricut Explore requires you to back your felt with a stiffener. Please note, many of our felt projects were created before the Cricut Maker was available. If you do not see an SVG file available with one of our felt projects, please email email@example.com with your request, and we will add the SVG cut file as soon as possible.
A. We have two favorite ways for cutting crepe paper. One is to layer the crepe paper in stacks of three to four sheets and hand cut several petals at a time. The other is to use the Cricut Maker. We like to use the fabric mat, as it’s a little less sticky and won’t damage the paper as you lift it off. Check out our video on tips and tricks for the Cricut Maker for more details: Tips and Tricks for Cricut Maker
