Tory Johnson has a special DIY edition of “Deals and Steals” —[1] including an exclusive deal of 50 percent off the Cricut machine[2] — but the offer is valid today only while supplies last.

Cricut is one of the cutting machines beloved by crafters. It can cut an extensive range of materials from paper stock, cardstock, felt, leather, chipboard and more — and it syncs with your phone or computer so you can access their pre-designed crafts or create your own.

Cricut crafter Lauren Duletzke showed “Good Morning America” how to make some of their favorite Discount Holidays © holiday crafts to make the season more joyful.
