by Elisa Gill | Jul 03, 2014

Hopefully most of you have heard about our I Made It! Campaign—Our current search for inspiring projects created by YOU! Here at Cricut, we’ve been amazed by the response we’ve received and loved the incredible projects you’ve shared with us via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Narrowing down our list of winners has been no easy feat, but we’re sure you’ll find the winning projects just as inspiring as do.

Featured I Made It! winners and their winning projects so far: 


Virginia M. -- Guyabera Shirt Card
 
“I wanted to incorporate a traditional Cuban element into a Havana Nights theme birthday party invitation. I love these shirts, and every man that wears one looks so cool and casual!”


Cynthia A. – Lollicups
“My inspiration for making the flowers for the cupcakes-on-a-stick (Lollicuppies) is quite a funny story…I don’t know how to make cake pops so I did the next best thing: bake mini cupcakes, die cut some cute flowers with my Cricut, and apply a stick to the bottom of the cupcakes. So easy and so cute!!!”


Heather W. – Hand Painted Wood Toy Box
“I have a new found passion in reclaimed wood projects. I love turning things that people would otherwise toss into beautiful custom made signs for family and friends. I’ve made signs for other people and this was my first one for my family.”


Julie P. -- Starbucks Cupcakes
“I made this for my coffee-loving teenager’s 16th birthday party! I used my Cricut to make the cupcake holders, and made the labels on my computer. They were a huge hit!”


Nicole S. -- Rosette Wreath
“LOVE the Cricut Ribbons & Rosettes cartridge!”


Tracey P. – “P” With Chevron Burlap Tie
“I was inspired by a project I saw on Pinterest. I took a wooden letter, painted it and made a chevron printed burlap bow and wallah! An addition to our family picture wall!”


Robin B. – Pillows
“I made a set of pillows with Cricut iron on vinyl for the first time. The vinyl was easy to use and I was thrilled with the results! I was inspired by a post on Pinterest to make them as a bridal shower gift for my daughter’s best friend. ‘Hello there handsome’ and the complimentary ‘Good morning gorgeous’.” 


Jessica R. – Congratulations Party Using Turquoise and Red
“I am the craft/project/party guru for my family and friends so for this particular project I created banners for a family friend’s reception.”


Tina V. – Reversible Apron
“My cat loving daughter has a bridal shower next month and I wanted to make her a gift. When I found this cat fabric I knew it would make an adorable apron, reversible with red polka dots. I couldn’t resist adding a polka dot pocket and wide waistband with long enough tails to tie a darling bow.”


April A. – Vinyl Decal Window

“Pinterest inspiration.”

Maria M. – Monster Tissue Box

“Monster silverware holder. I used a tissue box, painted it, cut the opening a little more, added teeth and wiggle eyes and glued chenille stems to hold the eyes up. This was for my son’s 1st birthday monster party.”


Alyssa M. – Love Sign
“I wanted to make something that would help our booth stand out at a bridal show and the love sign was the perfect piece! It was cut out by hand and glittered, so it was a ton of work but really drew attention and made people stop to talk to us. Even though I’m still finding glitter around my house months later it was worth it!” 


Samantha W. – Glitter Crown Cupcake Toppers

Tamara R. -- Carousel

"This carousel was made for our Youth Pastor's son's first birthday. The animals I made for his mom's baby shower. She went into early labor and I saved the animals from the shower. When their son's first birthday came along I wanted to make them something with those animals from the shower, so I thought why not a safari carousel? The ticket master has a button inside that plays Happy Birthday!" 

Alecia W. -- Knit Octopus and Elephant

"How I made it...I started trying tiny amigurumi on a whim, the octopus is the second of its kind (different colors) and the elephant was a challenge from a fellow crafter. :)"

Lauren S. -- Rainbow Brite 

"My inspiration in creating this is getting to relive my childhood with my favorite images."

Nancy C. -- Rosette Snowman
"I made this rosette snowman with snowflake name banner for my granddaughter's "snowman" themed birthday party!"
 Stephanie M. -- New Kids on the Block T-Shirt
"This t-shirt was 25 years in the making since I wasn't allowed to go to the New Kids concert the first time around. :)"

Claudia S. -- Hand Knit Scarf

"Arm knitting is fun, relaxing, and super easy! You can create beautiful scarves for kids and adults! Color combos are endless!!" 

Rosa K. -- Oven Cupcake Boxes
"I wanted a cupcake box that was more realistic than the ones I saw. My daughter suggested adding the drawer and an idea was born."

 Anaya W. -- Button Bouquet
"This is a button bouquet made for a bridesmaid in a rainbow-themed wedding."

Reisa D. -- Masks

Shanna W. -- Fish Lanterns

"This project was for an under the sea party. They were such a big hit. The kids loved the fish and jellyfish."

Verda H. -- Butterfly Wall

Kara M. -- Rosette Centerpiece
"I made this project using Anna Griffin's Summer Soiree cartridge and Becky Higgins' Olive edition paper with my 1st generation Cricut. Assembled with hot glue and a wooden skewer on each. This was a very quick project and can be adapted for many uses!"

Amy P. -- Jewelry


Beverly B. --  Banner
"The reason I made the banner is I work at Tiger Kims Tae Kwon Do. I work at one and my grandchildren go to another. There was a big tournament that week against four other Tiger Kims. This was one of our decorations for spirit."

Belinda F. -- Origami "Frozen" Flower

Pam G. -- Wood Photo Transfer

Lyn S. -- Letter Puzzle Pieces
