Use your Cricut cutting machine to make a quick and easy name necklace!
I love name necklaces but they can be so fiddly to make yourself. Luckily, using the Cricut it's as easy as can be and I've been making lots of them for my myself and my friends.

These shapes are from the Cricut Craft Room Basics cartridge which is available free from the Cricut website. You can visit their website at Cricut.com and find them on Facebook.

  • How to make a shrink plastic pendant. Cricut Name Necklace - Step 1
    Step 1

    Open Cricut-Craft Room and select a font for your name. Drag each letter in to the design, making sure they're lined up neatly with each other and then overlap, so that the edge of each letter touches just enough to make your name a continuous shape.

    This is also a great time to create a little charm to hang from your necklace.
