Anyone got any experience using the cricut to cut out pieces for paper crafting? if so any videos or anything that can help with aligning things and set up?

Wondering if its worth the hassle to try to do it with a cricut, or if it is better to just cut everything by hand with an xacto.

Thanks in advance

Sauce on the model?
I don't have a Cricut OP but I would think you might import the print file/pdf into the software and go from there, maybe try following a video like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v5TPdjUa9R0 that's for card making but she does letters so that might be useful or this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtPXc5w0MUc which is for stickers but she shows you how to change the border of the cut.
I don't do origami, but I've used cricuts before for stencils. Aligning a printed piece of paper seems like it would be pretty difficult as you need to align the paper manually on an adhesive mat. The mat itself will pose an issue for thinner paper, and small pieces, it takes some skill removing stuff like that from the mat. The mats also will collect dust and debris over time, which can cause issues. Maybe if you're doing a lot you will be faster in the long run, but my guess is short term its about the same amount of time as doing it manually. If it's just straight lines I'd say go by hand.
