I love the idea of making 3D objects. Such as the haunted house or the winter village. Is it possible to make these things on the small machine or do you need to have a bigger Cricut.

The Expression is fine for the 3D objects. I wish I could find some of the 24 inch paper stacks so that I could use it with a 12x24 mat to make the houses bigger. The Expression is currently the biggest Cricut machine, but I'd get a bigger one should Provo release it! ThumpUp Flapper
Have a great day!

Sorry I actually have the smallest machine. The mat is 6 x 12.

I think the envelopes and boxes, especially, would be all but useless if cut on one of the smaller machines. A house or some of the other 3D items would probably be quite a bother to assemble if cut on a 6x12 mat, too.

I agreee that they might be difficult to put together. I wonder if anyone who may have done it on a smaller Cricut might be around to answer that. I bet it would be cute for a shadow box. Now I'm curious...

I also just have the small one. I think they'd be a pita to assemble. And probably the size of Thumbalina houses. LOL

When one of the Design Teams (maybe Bitten by the bug?) did the 3D Haunted House, they said that 7 inches is the largest you can get it using the fit to page with the E. So, using the baby bug, it would be substantially smaller (using that old math ratio thing. . .7 inches is to 12 inches as x inches is to 6 inches and the largest you could cut would be around 3.5 inches).

I did bags on the smaller cricut for christmas tree decorations. I didn't find them hard to put together. I think that a Christmas tree village could be very cute.

Just played with the gypsy looks like you could cut the house at 5.5 inches on a 6x12 mat. Though it also looks like even cut at 5.5 inches it might only be 5 " high.
