They say good things come in small packages and that couldn’t be more true with Cricut’s newest personal cutting machine! The idea of getting out my Maker to make labels for the Summer Boredom Box can be a bit daunting. Please allow me to introduce you to Cricut Joy is the smartest little cutting and writing machine.
Not to mention, the Cricut Joy is incredibly easy to set up and use. Within minutes you can cut custom vinyl decals, make labels, or even bust out a custom birthday card.
Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my Cricut Maker, however, it is a bit more work to get her out and get set up. With the Cricut Joy, you just load and go making refilling the kids’ summer boredom box so convenient. Weighing in at only 3.9lbs; combined with the Bluetooth wireless technology, Cricut Joy makes it possible to make something unique – at a moment’s notice.
You’re probably wondering what makes the Cricut Joy so special aside from the fact that she’s smaller than the other machines. Well, to start, there is the price, the Cricut Joy retails for $179 online whereas the Cricut Explore Air 2 retails for $249.99 and the Maker (the full-size machine that I have) coming in most expensive at $399.99. But wait….there is more. I told you she’s fierce and she truly is.
The Cricut Joy cuts 50+ materials, including iron-on, card stock, vinyl, paper Smart Materials™ – super-easy, super-long cuts without a cutting mat. Additionally, the Cricut Joy draws any shapes and writes in a variety of styles. Additionally, you can still use your Infusible Ink markers with the Cricut Joy, she’s like the little sister who’s just as capable as the bigger sibling just smaller in size.
The Smart Materials for the Cricut Joy were developed specifically for the Cricut Joy eliminating the need for cutting Mats. While Cricut still created Mats specifically for the Cricut Joy, this makes it possible to use the materials that you use with your Maker or Air 2. The Cricut joy cuts individual shapes up to 4ft long or you can even do repeated cuts up to 20 ft long.
One of my favourite things about the Cricut Joy is how effortless it is to make beautiful items within minutes. I can access my designs for the Boredom Box via Design Space on my Android or check out the Cricut Joy App available for IOS and print off new labels within minutes. No longer having to spend the 10 minutes just setting up the Maker and get the required tools because my Cricut Joy is always within arm’s length.
Now… let’s talk about the Boredom Box..having more than one kid generally means that you must maintain some element of fairness. If one of my girls gets something, then I best have another for the other child. But even then, even if they are the same thing, there is always some way to tell which one belongs to who. With my Cricut Joy, I have created labels for each girl so when I bring home something home, we slap a label on it and there is no longer any reason to fight!
What is the Kids Summer Boredom Box featuring The Cricut Joy Smart Writable Vinyl?
Speaking of fighting, if your kids are anything like mine the bickering has probably already began. You’ve probably even heard a few boredom complaints thrown around already if you haven’t, you probably will soon. Summer is off to an exceptional start that I’m not quite sure anyone saw coming. I think preparedness for the unexpected is going to be the key to success.
I’ve created the Summertime I’m Bored Box filled with contents to cure the boredom blues. Next time one of the girls wants to cry, “I’m bored, I simply hand them the box. Each item within the box is labeled with the girl’s names on it, no more worrying about who used more bubbles or stickers. Thank you Cricut Joy… Goodbye fighting — Goodbye Summertime Boredom!
