DIY American Girl Cricut Machine

I am so excited to attend the Cricut Make-a-thon event this week! I’ll be learning a lot of new tricks to show you and implement in our upcoming doll crafts! Since a few dolls are joining me on the trip I thought it would be perfect to craft them their very own Cricut. This is great to stick in your doll’s craft room. Let me warn you, the PVC foam board is so cool, but it does take time to shape. Trust me though, it’s worth it!

Also, stay tuned on our YouTube channel, Instagram and Facebook for live video coverage of the event! There are a few surprises that I can’t wait to show you!

Materials Needed:


  • Prepare to spend some time shaving down the pvc foam board. It takes patience, but the end result is so worth it! It took me about 30 minutes to shape the Cricut and then another 45 minutes just digging out the holder.

Watch and tell us what you’ve made with a Cricut!

    Adele IKR? I watch their videos when I’m bored there are so many of them! I watch AGI’s videos too but it’s not very easy to find AGI videos that I haven’t watched.

    My doll has a cricut now, even though I don’t have one! Lol… Bookfanatic102, a cricut is a crafting tool that helps you cut crafting materials.

    And can you guys make a Fitbit, the Grand Hotel, a trampoline, a slip ‘n’ slide, lava lamp, swimming pool and other rooms? I know that was a huge list but I just suddenly either saw a comment and agreed, or I just looked around at what I’ve got in my house…..
