When we decided to renovate our office to be kid-friendly for homeschooling or digital learning this year, I knew my Cricut Maker would come in VERY handy. The Cricut Maker is like a fancy label maker, but better. You can make everything from shirt iron on decals to wall decals to coasters with this versatile machine. And everything looks so professional!
If you sew, you should check out the Cricut Maker FAQ for sewists, or if you’re just wondering what type of projects you can do with the machine, here are some of my Cricut projects over the years.

How I Used the Cricut Maker to Customize Our Homeschool Space
These are three projects that I created with my Cricut Maker to help organize our homeschooling space. My tutorial is in the video below… but first, here are the supplies I used for these projects.
- Cricut Maker
- Easy Press
- Permanent Vinyl
- Removable Vinyl
- Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets
- Corner desk with IKEA cabinets for base
- Infusible Ink Coaster Blanks
- Cork and Leather Desk Mat
- Infusible Ink Markers
- Cricut Transfer Tape
- Heat Resistant Tape
My first project was to add labels to the fronts of our desk drawers. My kids are willing and able to put things away, but they really need a lot of direction to get it done properly. Tell them “clean up” and they’ll throw things in all sorts of random places. I wanted their drawers organized so their supplies were easy to find.
I created four labels on DesignSpace for each desk: Writing, Art, Technology, and Filing. Their technology drawer is for items like a Chromebook, their microscope, etc. I chose an easy to read font because my kids are still learning to read. Their filing section has hanging folders for each subject so they can file their written assignments; they also add their notebooks for each subject to the relevant folder. It makes finding things WAY easier. In our state, Maryland, we have two annual homeschooling reviews so this will allow me to quickly grab examples of our work over the school year.
My second project was to customize their desk mats. I purchased some nice cork and leather desk mats to prevent them from ruining the wood desks. They were customized with ABCs for my two younger sons and I added parts of speech to my 3rd grader’s mat. I’m hoping to add some quotes eventually too.
For the third project, I made us all coasters… again, I’m hoping to protect the desks. I used Cricut Infusible Ink for my Hamilton inspired coaster, and Cricut Infisuble Ink blanks for the kids’ coasters.
Here’s the video showing you how I made these projects!
