Go to YouTube and do a search for “cricut invitations” (or anything, really).  Step back and watch all the amazing DIY cricut stuff you can do.

Then you’ll realize you want allllll sorts of accessories and software, like I do!

Honestly, large straight paper products like pocketfolds may be easier with a paper cutter, and scoring tool, and some glue.  If you’ve got rounded inserts or inserts with shape to them, the cricket will be good at that.  Plus all the little accents you’ll want at your wedding will be a breeeeze!

Yeah, I would suggest cutting the pocketfolds out with a regular paper cutter. You don’t want to waste your cutting mats for the cricut on these easy straight lines.  If your invitations are round or an interesting shape you could do that with the cricut.  And you can definitely use it for little details at the wedding.

I got my Cricut Expression for Christmas. This is the one that cuts 12″x24″ size and use it with the Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) software to cut my own design into the paper. You’ll have to create a cut file that has an .svg extension. Then open SCAL and import that svg file into the application and cut. After the Cricut cuts the shape I want, I score the paper to make the folds, and then glue the pocket. The design I made has a curved-V pocket instead of a pointy-V pocket.
