Gift for the Kitchen with Cricut Joy
If you have someone on your gift list who loves to be in the kitchen, or is moving into their first house, a kitchen themed gift is a perfect idea!
You can customize it will all kinds of gadets and tools in different colors, and personalize some of them with your Cricut Joy.
Here’s what I made for this kitchen gift. (Read here for how to decorate gift packaging with Cricut Joy)
Cricut Joy Spice Labels

These round labels are made with the white label vinyl that works perfectly with the Joy Pens. The roll is smart vinyl meaning it can run through the Joy without being stuck on a mat.
The Joy first draws with the pen, then you switch out for the blade and it cuts the labels.
**Resize if needed for specific jars.
You can gift this a couple of different ways. One option is to buy jars and put the labels on, or just cut the set of labels and the recipient can put them on their own jars.
Kitchen Towel with Iron on Vinyl

Kitchen towels are a great part of a kitchen themed gift because they’re inexpesive and so easy to personalize. Add initials, last names, farmhouse animals and more.
Cut iron-on vinyl with the Cricut Joy – use Smart Vinyl to cut without a mat, or size a piece of regurlar iron-on to fit on a Joy mat like I did.
Weed away the extra vinyl from the carrier sheet. Often it’s easiest to do this while the design is still on the mat!
Apply to the towel with an EasyPress set at 305 degrees. Preheat towel for 5 seconds, then position and press the design for 30 seconds. Press from the back side for another 5 seconds.
Wait for the iron-on vinyl to cool before peeling away the carrier sheet. Wait 24 hours before washing.
As a note, kitchen towels like tea towels or flour sack towels will work better than fluffy or textured towels.
Iron on Vinyl Oven Mitt

Oven mitts are a great blank for adding iron-on vinyl. Just make sure you add it to the “back side” not the part that will actually touch hot pans.

Cricut Joy Kitchen Card
Open Design Space Project here
The Card Mat is one of my favorite things about the Cricut Joy. And of course a kitchen gift needs a kitchen themed card too.
For the card, I cut my own cardstock with my paper trimmer so I could use colors that exactly matched the gift. Save yourself time with these Insert Card Packs.
To make the card base, cut cardstock 5.5 inches by 8.5 inches a score in the middle. Slide the back of the card under the top layer of the card mat and press the front of the card.
Follow screen instructions to add add the pen, load the mat, and then when to put the blade back in. When the cut is finished, gently peel the card off.
Cut a card insert to 4 x 5.25 inches. Slide the corners into the cutouts. For this particular design, you also need to glue on the cutout that goes under the handle of the teapot.
