Cricut Father’s Day Projects

Normally, I don’t have guest posts or display work that was done by anyone but me, unless it’s the awesome Design Team ladies and our guy, Kyle.  However, when Provo Craft contacted me and asked if I’d like to share these projects with you I decided to forget about what my rules are and think of you! 🙂  I thought YOU might be interested in seeing some ideas for Father’s Day.  These are all things you can make with your Cricut and even the Cricut Cake.  So without further ado, here are some projects for you to try.
