You can buy marker type things for the cricut to write on the shapes that you cut out.  It definetly requires a few trial runs to make sure the placement of the word is correct.  The Cricut in my opinion is the most versatile die cutting machine.  You will be able to use it alot for the wedding and for school afterwards, I have certainly used mine quite a bit.  Your picture is definitely possible with the cricut but its just not the easiest thing to do, but practise and trial and error and they will look great.  You can also get a variety of colours for the markers so if you want the writing in a colour other than black you can have that as well.  Have fun!

The markers go in the machine where the blade usually goes (you replace the blade with the marker) so instead of cutting what you want it draws where it would have cut.  I hope that makes a little bit of sense.  So you would program the machine to “cut” the names out but instead of cutting it would draw the name.

I would cut the dragonflies but leave them on the cutting mat and then place the marker where you want it to start writing, and then take them off the mat once they are written on, but its going to take quite a few tries to figure it out.

I have a cricut and LOVE it! I will be started student teaching soon, so I figured it was a good investment for the wedding and for my future career as a teacher. 🙂 I’d definitely suggest going for it! I haven’t used the markers yet, but it’s definitely doable and it saves you a ton of time.

I have used the cricut for so many wedding things!!  And I am also a teacher, so I will be using it even after the wedding. 

After some googling, the cartridges “Home Decor,” “Doodlecharms” and “Walk in My Garden” all have dragonfly images.
