Update- Since I first published this post I have entirely redesigned the freebie for this cookie spatula. It now has pattern fill added and is much more visible. You’ll more about this project in my post, How to Make Engraved Cookie Spatulas with the Cricut Maker.
Today’s engraving tutorial is a guest post I’ve written for Jennifer Maker.com and is part of the Great Maker 25-Day Gift-Away!!! If you’re not familiar with Jennifer’s amazing blog, fabulous YouTube channel, or awesome Facebook groups, you totally need to check them all out. The guest post project is a How-to for Engrave a Cookie Spatula with the Cricut Maker Engraving Tool. It builds on a tutorial that I did on How to Engrave Stainless Steel Pie or Cake Servers with a Cricut Maker.
Cake Servers are JUST the Beginning…. Try These Ideas Too!
Since the Engraved Cake Servers has proven to be super popular, in this blog you’ll find tutorials for engraving cheese spreaders and lots of other fun things. I’ve also included a step-by-step tutorial for engraving a grill spatula in my book, Engraving Metals with Your Cricut Maker.
Make a DIY Cookie Making Kit
It’s just such an awesome gift idea. And it would pair wonderfully with any of the sassy Christmas baking hot pads I’ve seen. Toss in a cookie mix and you’re golden- the perfect small gift for neighbors, teachers, and co-workers. I’m honestly super excited about how simple and easy these are to make.
There are a few tips and tricks so I hope you’ll hop over to Jennifer’s blog to read the tutorial. She’s also making a YouTube video to go along with the post so be sure to look for that as well.
MORE Crafty Christmas Ideas
For makers, Christmas is a great opportunity to be creative. So much of what we do to celebrate the holiday involves creating something or enjoying something someone created (yes, Hallmark movie watching friends this means you).
Whether you’re a fan of cookie baking, tree decorating, gingerbread house making, card making, gift wrapping, or cheesy Christmas movies, they all give us the excuse to create. If you’re fortunate enough to have a Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore Air 2 machine then the possibilities probably have you wishing the season lasted longer then it does.

on the how to engrave a cookie spatula. can you use the cricut air explore 2?
Actually the Cricut engraving tool is just for the Maker. There is a third party engraving tool that works with the Explore Air. However, it voids the warranty if you use it and something goes wrong with your Cricut. So people will try it after that. I really can’t give any advice because I’ve only tested this with the cricut Maker. I can say it’s super fun though!!!! Thanks for the comment. ❤️
My friend just made her second project ever. She did your gingerbread man server. It was amazing and she is so excited! Thank you for the file
Thank you for telling me! I LOVE encouraging people to be creative. It’s so amazing when they have that moment of “I did this”. So I really appreciate your sharing this! ❤️
