Hi there The Crafting Nook Readers! I’m Christene and I blog over at Keys to InspirationI’m so excited to be guest posting today on Cami’s blog! She’s so creative, isn’t she? My blog is all about helping you discover creative, simple, and affordable ways to design a home you love! One of my passions is creating home decor and teaching others how to create too! Even if you don’t think you’re a crafty person, I can show you how easy it is to create beautiful things for your home on a budget. Now that summer is in full swing I thought I would share a fun DIY project for one of my favorite summer activities – going to the Farmer’s Market, so I made this cute Farmer’s Market Tote.

During the summer months, one of my favorite things to do is to visit the local farmer’s market to find the best summer foods! Today I want to show you how you can make this cute farmer’s market tote using the Cricut Explore.

It’s no secret that I’m a huge Cricut Explore fan. I constantly tell my readers that it’s my favorite DIY tool.


If you aren’t familiar with the Cricut Explore, it’s basically an electronic cutting machine that you can use to create just about any project you can imagine. It’s a crafty girl’s dream machine! If you want to learn more about the Cricut Explore, check out this post.

Now, let’s get creating!

DIY Farmer’s Market Tote

Materials:

Tools:

  • Cricut Explore Machine
  • Regular Cutting Mat
  • Cricut Basic Tools Set
  • Iron

First, open up Cricut Design Space. For this project, I’m going to be using the new and improved Cricut Design Space 3. It’s still in Beta mode and was just released to the general public, so this is my very first Cricut tutorial using the new Design Space!

Before we can start designing, you will need to download the “Market Fresh” Stencil Image. You can get it for free by clicking here.

Start a new project by clicking on the new project button. This will open a new blank canvas for you to work from.

In the Side Menu, select the “Upload” button. This will open the Upload Menu.

For our project, we are going to be uploading the “Market Fresh” Stencil Image. Select the “Upload Image” button and then select “Browse.”
