Hiya, today is part one of a two part project -> my Cricut Explore Minion Card Design Space How To video followed tomorrow by the construction of the card. I decided I wanted to make a ‘Minion’ card but as yet, as far as I know, there are no crafty die cut shapes of a Minion. By that I mean like we have Disney cartridges with Mickey Mouse or Toy Story but for now no Minions. So I thought I would make my own and this is the first of those two posts showing how I went about it.

Now this video is focusing on how I designed my Minion in Design Space so I could cut it on my Cricut Explore. Now if you are not bothered to see the actual designing on the computer then you can skip to part 2 and just watch how I constructed the card after all the elements were cut.

I didn’t really have any plan when designing this Minion I had no plan on how I was going to go about it, so I found a picture ….


…. and then I got to work finding shapes, melding them together til I ended up with my own little Minion so here is the first video showing you that process – Cricut Explore Minion Card Design Space How to video:-

So that is the how I made the design and tomorrow is the video showing you how I put the card together which is a video in its own right. Finally before I say cheerio for today, just to let you know that I have put a DOWNLOAD of the project, but til tomorrow hugs and have a great craft day,

  1. Hello! I am throwing my daughter a minion party, and I am currently waiting for my cricut explore to be shipped!!! Im so excited.. but I am new to all of this and I watched your youtube videos on how you made the minion, and I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction of your shop to either purchase or get the free download for the minion project?
    Thank you!

    • Hi Leah, sorry I hadn’t realised I had forgot to make the link to the post live. I have done that now so just go back to where I say in this post there is a free download and you should be able to click those words and it will take you there. But in any event my shop is easy to find just go to the top of the page and look in the flags / banners and you will see one with ‘shop’ in it, click and it will take you to the front page of my store. There is not a lot in it yet as i am still working on it but the cricut downloads have their own section and you find that in the list on the left hand side if that helps 🙂
