If you’re unfamiliar, Cricuts make all those custom stickers, delicate doilies, and Instagram-ready greeting cards you see around your crafty friend’s house. You too can start being a craft wizard with Amazon’s sale on this popular Cricut Explore Air 2 machine.

Let’s talk about the cool stuff it can do: It can cut any design you create in Photoshop/Illustrator/etc. or you can select a design for its extensive library. You can design and cut on the go, using Cricut’s app on your phone or tablet. It’s strong enough to cut through a bunch of different materials like faux leather, vinyl, and speciality paper. Lastly, the Explore Air 2 cuts faster and has more color options than the first model.


The heavy-hitting deal here is the bundle which includes the base unit plus a basic tool set, and a vinyl brights sampler selling for $230. This set rarely moves away from its usual $287.

But if you just want to go for the standalone unit (which typically sells for $250), it’s available for $211 in Mint, Persimmon, and Cherry Blossom flavors, so go open that Etsy shop.
