So many DIY craft ideas, not enough time to create them? Meet the Cricut Air 2, the key to getting more polished results in less time. Quickly design projects on your laptop or phone and let this do the work of cutting them out. It reduces prep time, slip ups and finger cramping! What else did our consumer testers love?


  • EASY TO MASTER The predesigned project templates are great for novices, though one tester said users shouldn't feel nervous about diving right in with an original idea: "The app and web program are so simple even someone with no design experience can immediately start uploading and laying out projects."
  • SUPER VERSATILE Testers used this to cut through card stock, vinyl, leather and fabric. Their creations included mugs, picture frames and wine glasses decorated with vinyl cutouts of sayings; glitter iron-ons used to personalize sweatshirts and tees; fabric pennants strung together to create a banner — and much, much more!
  • PROFESSIONAL RESULTS This takes the hassle out of getting sharp edges and perfectly round shapes, which can be hard to achieve by hand. We were especially impressed by a greeting card with an intricate cut-out design that looked like it had been laser cut.
  • TIME-SAVING "Not having to cut out each and every letter or word helped me get through orders so much faster," said one tester who sells personalized items on Etsy. "I've been raving about the Cricut to everyone!"
