Looking for a great Cricut Joy DIY? This Disney To Do Board is the perfect addition to any home office!
Ok, let’s discuss the obvious. I’m not exactly a crafty type of girl. I want to be….but, man it is NOT my talent. However, I am a easy projects that look fancy type of girl……which leads to my confession that I’m totally obsessed with my Cricut. Now let’s be specific, I actually have two Cricut machines…..the Cricut Explore and the Cricut Joy. This project? Totally created on that mini machine…..the Joy. It’s one of the newest additions to the Cricut family, and I love how compact it is. I keep it on small bookshelf in my newly decorated home office, and I love how easy it is to use……perfect for tiny spaces (teachers, this would be IDEAL for a classroom).
I used the Cricut Joy to create our Little Mermaid tees recently, and we’ve also used our Cricut to make those Minnie Mouse Sweatshirts y’all love so much, plus we made some super cute tees for our Disney Creators trip back in February. The thing is, right now? I’m not exactly heading to Disneyland in my Disneyland outfits…..so I decided to use my Cricut to add a little Disney magic to the home office I’ve FINALLY gotten set up (yes a year after we moved). This Disney To Do Board is inspired by one of my favorite princesses, and I love how clean and simple it is! It adds just a dash of pixie dust without being too over the top and I LOVE IT.
Cricut Joy Permanent Smart Vinyl: This was my first time using smart vinyl and it’s SO EASY to use, I’m into it! It doesn’t require a cutting mat, and I love that it means you’ll need ONE less tool stored away for future projects. Cricut Joy Transfer Tape: You’ll need this to transfer the vinyl design to your acrylic
Essential Tool Kit: This tool kit had all the pieces I needed to weed my design. Weeding? Removing the little pieces that had been cut but needed to be taken out (aka the center of Minnie’s bow).
Acrylic Sheet: This acrylic sheet is the perfect size for a tabletop to do list. And it comes in a pack of six so you’ll have extras for more projects.
In the Cricut Design Space, select our design to grab the template I created. This will open to the exact design we printed including the graphic of the Tiana quote AND her crown (which is available in the Cricut design studio on it’s own).
You can change the size of each design element if you want to adjust for a kids’ room sign or a notebook.
Attach your smart vinyl to the cutting mat (I used gold but you can use any color), and load with the shiny side down.
You’ll be printing TWO separate components of this design. So two printing processes (the quote graphic and then the crown).
Print out each part, and remove extra material. Use your tools to weed, or remove the extra pieces in between parts of the letters or design. There wasn’t TOO much weeding for this one except for the small pieces inside the crown.
