Use a Cricut Joy and Mini Press to add an iron-on for a personalized ID badge. Makes a great gift too, just tuck a gift card inside.
With graduation celebrations looking a little different in 2020, my community created an “adopt a senior” page to help show some extra support to the class of 2020. The idea was to shower these hard-working kiddos with love. I snagged up several names and then started brainstorming fun gift ideas.
Since I had recently received my new Cricut Joy, I knew I wanted to add a personalized touch to something. Adding vinyl or iron-on to gifts always adds an extra wow factor. One of my graduating seniors had attended a career center and will be going on to get her Pharmacy degree. So when I saw these ID badges online, I knew it would make the perfect gift.
Since she will be attending The Ohio State University in the fall, I went to the Cricut Design Space™ to find a fun image to add. There are so many “Ohio” (or search for your state) options already created to use in your projects. I found the perfect image and cut it out using my Cricut Joy and Smart Iron-On (no mat needed!)
This little project also gave me an opportunity to use my newest Cricut tool- the Cricut EasyPress Mini™ (isn’t that Raspberry color fabulous!). This little iron-on wonder is perfect for smaller images and getting in tight spots. And it’s portability makes it a perfect pair for the Joy.
Add the iron-on image to the ID badge and you’ve got a fun little gift. And even better, tuck a gift card into one of the slots for a little something extra.
Do you know a recent grad that would like this gift? Or maybe a hard-working front line worker?
