March is national craft month and we want to start it out with some free SVG design downloads. This month, Aaron Meyers has done (1) St. Patrick’s day card, a (1) bunny candy bag, and (1) fun Easter scrapbook layout.
Just in case you are new here, every month we release new, free designs. It works like this: You use the SVG image files with an electronic cutting machine to cut your material (colored cardstock, vinyl, etc.) to make these fun designs. To download each file, all you have to do is scroll to the bottom of this post and click on the links.
Richelle tackled our favorite design and brought it to life; it’s called the Bunny Candy Bag. To make this cute bag, you will just need some scrapbook paper, strong adhesive, and a bag filled with your preferred treats! You will need to adhere the cardstock to the bag, and we suggest using double-sided tape. Your kids, friends, and relatives will love this as an Easter gift.

Today is your lucky day; in this post, you get not one, but three St. Patrick’s Day projects! Sorry, I know St. Patty’s is just a couple days away, but I’m just barely getting to around to making these. But better late than never, I always say. So today, we are going to start out with this fun card I made using the Sesame Street Celebrations Cricut cartridge. It features all your favorite Sesame Street characters in designs that are great solutions for a variety of holidays. The card I chose features Elmo, my favorite Sesame Street character. This card ended up being 6″ x 6″ and Elmo was cut out at 6″ with my Cricut Explore Air 2.
The second card I made is one of Aaron’s designs that we offered with our March 2017 downloads as part of our huge library of free .SVG Downloads. When I saw this card, I was immediately in love with it. I used my Silhouette CAMEO 3 to cut this card out at 4″ x 6″. It was just 3 easy cuts and I love the results!

It’s already March, can you believe it?! That means it’s time for some fun St. Patty’s Day projects, and this month we have (2) card projects for you to enjoy. Aaron Meyers has designed these two free .SVG downloadable files. Scroll to the bottom of the post to see the download links (you can’t see them if you are reading this in the blog feed).
You can use these .SVG files with your favorite electronic craft machines, like the Cricut Explore Air and the Silhouette America CAMEO 3. The file indicates to your cutting machine how to cut your patterned cardstock. It’s so easy to create amazing cards for free with CraftDirect.com. Just one of the many ways we love giving back to customers. Here are the cards:

Unless your Irish, it’s fairly likely you do not decorate much for St. Patrick’s Day, but with just a little bit of crafting you could have a few fun little decorations to match the holiday. For example, check out this print I made and framed. This project easy, quick and cheap. The best kind of project! I used the Word Collage Cricut cartridge, which features great word collages for holidays as well as other themes you could decorate with year-round.
There are a couple ways you could go about making this project: you could cut the phrases out of craft paper and create a nice layered effect by gluing each letter down, but that would take a lot of work. I did it the easy way and made it with Cricut vinyl.
I used green vinyl and after the cut I took just a few minutes to weed out (my favorite weeding tool is in this CGull 12-piece tool kit – the kit refers to them as hook tools) all the excess material so that I could seamlessly transfer it onto a sheet of paper. Then simply slip the design into the frame and you’re all done!
Now that I think of it, you could also just apply the vinyl directly to the glass of the frame.
Pro tip: Make a print for Easter and re-use the frame. I’m just going to store both prints in the frame so I don’t lose the one I’m not displaying.
There you have it – a quick St. Patrick’s Day solution. If you have any Word Collage Cricut cartridge ideas that you’d like to share, please do! If you like making St. Patricks day crafts and you want to make a couple of easy and fun cards, be sure to download our free St. Patricks Day .SVG images! You can download them here and please share them with your crafty friends. Whether you need a new Cricut font cartridge, or are looking for a Cricut Explore Air machine, we have the best deals.
