I LOVE my Cricut Maker. I mean, who wouldn’t? Ever since I had my Cricut Machine I’ve created so many crafts and DIY projects that I never thought I could make. With Cricut, anything is possible! Crafts that I thought were hard to make became effortless, creating personalized gifts for my family and friends, and learning new techniques every day.
If you just received your Cricut, you’re probably wondering what accessories you need to get crafting! Today, I’m going to share with you my favorite and most used Cricut Tools And Accessories That You Need using your Cricut Machine.
- CRICUT CUTTING MATS
Cricut mats come in various sizes and types. There are some projects that work best with the LightGrip mats, some that work better with StrongGrip, and one mat designed for fabric! The success of your project depends on the mat that you’ll use, so it’s very important to choose the right mat. If you wanted to know more about the different types of mats, what to use, and how to clean it. You can learn more here.
- CRICUT TOOL SET
The Cricut Tool Set is a must-have! It includes all the tools you need to start crafting with your Cricut! From scissors to scrapers, and maybe a few tools you don’t think you’ll need, but you definitely will.
This set includes:
- Scissors with protective blade cover – provide precision cuts with all materials
- Tweezers- to lift and secure delicate material
- Weeder- to remove tiny negative cuts
