How to Use Smart Paper Sticker Cardstock

Sharing is caring!

This is a quick tutorial on how to use Smart Paper Sticker Cardstock. Demo projects: Blippi themed birthday card and an anniversary card.

This is my FIRST Cricut Maker 3 project with the new Smart Materials! On the day I opened it, I absurdly decided to make a regular cardstock cards instead of giving these a try… disaster. I hate glue. I made a mess and it was miserable. Needless to say, I was a bit hesitant to tackle another paper project but the sticker cardstock had me intrigued. WOULD this make life easier? The answer is YES! I’m going to make ALL THE CARDS now. This was so much fun to use and I only needed the glue to assemble the envelope for the card. It was fantastic.

If you haven’t heard of Cricut’s new Smart Paper, it’s one of their Smart Materials. These all can be fed into the Cricut Maker 3 and the Cricut Air 3 without a mat. The machine can cut directly on the “paper” which makes doing projects that much easier.

The Smart Paper is a cardstock-like thickness, but the cut item can be pulled off the backing, similar to peeling a sticker up. This eliminates the need for glue. It’s PRETTY DAMN COOL! Okay here’s the video…
