Start a profitable side hustle with your Cricut! Learn tips and tricks and check out 50 things to make and sell with your Cricut.


With the holidays quickly approaching, now is the best time to start a side hustle and start making money with your Cricut! Three years ago this month my husband was laid off from his job. With a new baby and hospital bills, I knew we needed to have some form of income. So I decided to start making shirts with my Cricut machine.

I saw a post in a Facebook yard sale group for someone looking to have a Halloween maternity shirt made. I knew it would be easy enough with my Cricut so I replied and had about 5 other people ask to have a shirt made. After I made that first shirt, I posted the design in the yard sale groups and got another 15 orders. From there I created more designs, not sure maternity, and posted them for sale solely on Facebook.

My business quickly grew through Facebook and word of mouth and I was able to provide for my family until I was offered a full time job the following July. In this post I’ll share with you tips on how you too can grow a profitable side hustle with your Cricut and give you lots of project ideas of what you can make to sell for profit!
How To Get Started Making Money Selling Things

It’s as easy as crafting! If you’re reading this post, you’ve probably been crafting for some time and have had people tell you things they like that you make (and maybe some things they don’t like). Don’t make a bulk order of things hoping they’ll sell. First make a few things you personally will use, or give as gifts. Next take good pictures of them and post them for sale on Facebook Marketplace or Facebook Yard Sale Groups.

No need to spend money building a website or Etsy shop right now. I made over $2000 a month JUST selling on Facebook and you can too!
How To Get People To Buy What You Make
Notice above how I said to take GOOD pictures. You want to make your pictures look like something they want to buy. A poorly lit picture of your shirt on your table isn’t going to do the trick. I like to stage my pictures on a white table top, or vinyl backdrop and add some extras to the picture so buyers can visualize themselves with the item.

If you’re selling shirts, maybe add some jeans and shoes to the pick. Selling onesies? Add moccasins or a stuffed animal to the picture.

You can also use stock photos , or flat lays, and add your SVG to the design. Just make sure that what you are creating matches the stock photo. For example, if you’re using a stock image of a shirt and it’s a Bella+Canvas shirt, make sure you are using Bella+Canvas shirts. You can purchase flat lay photos in a ton of different varieties from Etsy. If you’re looking for the best blanks to buy, check out this post where I share over 100 of my favorite crafting blanks you can buy from Amazon.
What To Make To Sell With Your Cricut
If you have no ideas of what you want to make, ask friends and family what things they would like to buy. You can also look in the Facebook Marketplace or Yard Sale Groups to see what people are looking to purchase (look for ISO posts). And if all else fails check out these 50 ideas below of things you can make to sell! Each of the posts linked below gives you a step by step tutorial of how to make the project including supplies, screenshots and more!

If you are looking for designs to put on shirts, signs, etc., Design Space has over 100,000 images now with more being added. You can also check out and I love Design Bundle’s $1 Deals that happen at the end of the month. I can usually get a whole year’s worth of designs for $1!
