Maze Valentine’s Day Cards using one of my favorite crafting tools – The Cricut Explore Air 2 makes it so easy to print and cut Valentine’s Day cards in minutes! Plus, these non-candy Valentine’s day cards are perfect for kids.
Have I mention lately how much I love my Cricut?
I just want to stay home and make pretty things with it all day long. And, that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing. It’s so cold that I’d much rather stay inside in my pajamas and craft instead of do anything productive. A few days ago I shared the cutest Tic Tac Toe Valentine’s Day Cards and today I’m sharing these adorable Maze Valentine’s Day Cards.
Connor loves doing mazes so I thought this would be another awesome idea for class Valentine’s Day cards. And, I’m thrilled that my Cricut makes it so easy!
Want to make them too? Here’s what you’ll need?
- Cricut Explore Air 2
- LightGrip Adhesive Cutting Mat
- Cricut® Classic Pen Set
Step 1: Create a maze using this free Maze Generator website. Download as a PNG file so you can upload it to Cricut Design Space. I found that the SVG file won’t show up in the design space.
Step 2: Open this project.
Step 3: Click UPLOAD on the left and then click UPLOAD IMAGE. Click BROWSE and select your maze png. file.
Step 4: Select SIMPLE and then click on CONTINUE.
Step 5: Click on the background of the maze to erase the background and make it transparent. Click CONTINUE.
Step 6: Select the second box to SAVE AS A CUT FILE. Then click on SAVE.
Step 7: Select the maze image to insert the image into Design Space.
Step 8: Click on LINETYPE at the top of Design Space and change the image from cut to DRAW.
Step 9: Click “Select All” and “Attach” images. Insert the pen o.4 Tip Black Pen and load paper onto your cutting mat. Click “Make It.”
Step 10: Now it’s time to let your fabulous Cricut work it’s magic.
I absolutely LOVE the way these turned out!
So, if you need me for the rest of the winter, I’ll be in my pajamas, drinking coffee or wine (depending on the time of day), and making cute things with my Cricut.
