As a content creator it’s always really exciting when a brand you know and love reaches out to you to review one of their latest products. When Brother reached out to send me their Disney ScanNCut DX SDX230Di Electronic Cutting Machine, the latest addition to the ScanNCut DX series—I was elated. Brother is a brand I have trusted from childhood through my transition into adulthood for so many of my needs. Printers for school essays, sewing machines for my outfits, label makers for my pantry products. The options are endless and never let me down.
The ScanNCut DX is a home hobby machine with capabilities to cut your favorite shapes and words out onto vinyl or cardstock that you can apply onto pillows, scrapbooks, fabrics (like T-shirts), drink tumblers, etc. The only limitations of what you can create with this machine are the limits of your own mind.
In comparison to competitors out there (per Brother’s website) “The ScanNCut DX is the only affordable and versatile cutting machine with a built-in scanner for making all of life's moments stand out.”
I knew I wanted to decorate a fun tote bag to bring to the parks. On long Disney days I need a bag big enough to carry all my essentials, so why not make it Disney themed?!
Upon unboxing the Disney ScanNCut DX, the first thing I noticed was the adorable Mickey and Minnie Mouse embossed on the front. It truly made my Disney heart smile! After powering on the digital display (how cool!), I popped open the tray, attached my iron on vinyl to the included cutting mat, and loaded it into the tray. I was SO impressed to see that the machine came preprogrammed with over 150 Disney designs and tons of additional non-Disney themed designs!
The process was super simple. I chose some Minnie themed designs from the easy-to-use display. It showed me exactly where on the vinyl the patterns would be placed, and the touch screen gave me the option to move the pieces around. Once I hit cut, the machine smoothly and quickly cut out my design onto the mat. I was able to pull away the excess vinyl to reveal my adorable Minnie Mouse shapes which I ironed onto my tote bag! It was SO easy and took less than 10 minutes!
I can’t wait to continue making beautiful projects on my Disney ScanNCut DX for my home and friends. Brother hit it out of the park once again in being a trusted source for home and office appliances. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
