Crafters, never worry about a papercut again.The Cricut Explore Air wireless cutting machine is on sale for nearly 40 percent off as one of Amazon’s deals of the day.

The Cricut is a die-cutting machine, but it’s not just for scrapbooking. You can make models, stencils, cards, stamps, tags and just about anything else that involves paper crafts. The Cricut Explore Air can also cut through vinyl, cardstock and fabric, giving you precise designs in a fraction of the time it’d take you to cut by hand.

The Cricut design library comes with more than 50,000 images to work with, or you can design and upload your own. The free software works on your computer, or you can download the app to design from your iPhone or iPad

Even better, it comes without wires, so you’re not confined to make crafty messes at your desk.

Die-cut machines are the next best thing to a laser printer, which is far more expensive. Usually, the Cricut Explore Air will set you back $300, which is already on the lower side of quality cutting machines, but you can order one for $192. The deal ends Tuesday though, so act fast.
