Question by : What can i make with a Cricut Expression to sell to younger kids’ parents?
Hi. I’m 14 but i’m very creative and crafty! i’m getting ready to buy a Cricut Expression 2 and i was thinking about starting to sell something (that i could make with the Cricut). i love how people make things and sell them and the parents of younger kids (usually parents of girls) go crazy over! i was just trying to think of something that would be super cute and something that would draw the parents in! i don’t wanna make something thats extremely hard! Please refrain from bows,tutu’s, and ribbons!

well i think it is a great idea that you have an entrepeunerial spirit. There are some things to consider before you start. Decide who your “market” will be and what your service/product will be. Why will they want this? How about working with parents and helping them with party invitations, favors and matching thank you cards? That gives you a variety of different types of things to do. It can be girly girl or you can branch out into boys too. Specializing with girls between the ages of 4-10 might be fun. you can post some flyers around your home with neighbors you know. Then you can get referrals by mouth and save on advertising. You must be careful when meeting with a prospective “client”, meet out doors and let your adults know when, where and who you will be meeting with.
Have a form you create with all the information you would need to start working on their projects. You can start out simple to get the timiing it takes to do 5-25 items per party. Just do invites.
Hope this helps but make sure you do some internet or library checking on doing a hobby for a job. It will help with pricing which you need look into also. Go to a party store and get some clever ideas.
Best of luck! Can’t wait to hear what you will call your “business.”
