Lately, I’ve noticed I keep saying things like easily, super easy, unbelievably easy. Well, allow me to add shockingly easy! I am thrilled or shall I say extra thrilled when I can combine shockingly easy and super fast as this is exactly what this project was. You will love engraving with the Cricut Maker! I also included a video below to show you just how EASY it is to engrave dog tags with a Cricut Maker. Yay!
Then you get to add the WOW factor on this one too! Win Win again!
Cricut’s Engraving Tip # 41
When Cricut announced the engraving tip my mind went in so many places. It’s truly a game-changer when it comes to crafting in your home or outside your home for that matter! I could seriously see these Cricut Makers in schools across the country!
Back in the day in order to get an engraved dog tag, you would have to order it by mail, yes slug mail. If you were lucky enough to have an engraving shop in your local mall (remember those ?) you could put in your order and still have to wait and come back to get your engraved dog tag.
Then one day these pet tag engraving machines started showing up in pet stores where you could actually put in your info along with money and it would pop out an engraved dog tag!
Cricut is changing crafter’s lives!!!
Enter the year 2019 and now if you have a Cricut Maker, an engraving tip and a blank pet tag you can create your very own pet tag without even leaving your home. I mean how WOW is that?!? How about when you even begin to imagine the engraving possibilities it’s truly AMAZING.
I seriously walk through my home with products I already have and say to myself, I can engrave that! or I can add a beautiful piece of engraved metal to that plain wooden box with a lid LOL! Funny thing is I did not think that wooden box was so plain until I realized I could enhance it with a Cricut Maker and some anodized aluminum!
Plus keep in mind anodized aluminum is not the only metal Cricut can engrave, so the options grow once again!
What else can the Cricut Maker engrave?
Here is a link you will find helpful from the Cricut website in regards to compatibility with what the Cricut Maker can engrave.
So many possibilities
So my mind is on overdrive dreaming up all kinds of projects, how about you? I’ll link to my supplies list and also include a YouTube video on just how easy this project is. I truly hope you will join me in creating with love this holiday season and throughout the year. Our options are growing people!!! 💖
