Must Have Cricut Accessories For Your Cricut Machines
Or you might come across a few items you didn’t know existed but could simplify your crafting life!
If you have a Cricut Machine and are letting it collect dust because you don’t know where to start, stop that and start here so you know the best Cricut tools to meet your needs!
Pull that beauty out and start using it and never look back!
Let’s start with Cricut Access, in my opinion, this monthly subscription is a must it opens you up to receive designs and files and even fonts that otherwise you would have to pay to use.
With Cricut access, you get access to over 75000 images and so much more with your access subscription.
What Cricut Accessories Do I Need?
I bet this is a question you have asked yourself a ton! Your accessories are going to depend on the types of projects you want to do.
If you are going to be working with heat transfer vinyl then you definitely want to snag an EasyPress 2. If you have the Cricut maker and want to cut fabric, you want to have the fabric cutting mat.
I love the BrightPad for so many different reasons. You are able to trace and transform and adapt patterns with ease.
This non-slip pad will light up and you are able to see the design through your paper to trace and more. I can’t begin to tell you how handy this accessory is.
The Cricut has four different mats right now. They are color coded so you can remember what mat goes to what.
Investing in all is great for when you have a new project arise that requires a certain mat. Pink is for fabric, Blue is for light grip projects, Green is standard like vinyl, iron on’s, etc. and Purple is a heavy duty mat.
I love having my bundle pack because I have needed all different mats, and I would have been stalled on a project waiting for a new mat.
Take your crafts to a whole new level with the EasyPress. You can make designs on shirts, scarves, bags and more, that look like they are professional.
The EasyPress is an evenly heated plate that will help adhere your iron on designs in just 60 seconds or less.
This is incredible and if you have a lot to do, it reduces your time spent getting those iron-on secure.
With the holidays upon us, consider these Cricut Pens.
They are great for writing on holiday cards that you are making, sending invitations for that handwritten look with stunning cursive and bold print.
This is a great tool as well. It is going to help you with 3D projects, scoring lines for cards, boxes and more. It is a simple tool but will give you that precise quality you want in your projects.
If you don’t own the basic toolset, you should invest. It is a very affordable bundle and you get basic tools that you will need.
Tweezers, weeder, scissors, spatula and more. A basic set that you will use often.
This blade is so much better than the one that comes with your Cricut.
It will work for a longer time at staying sharp and giving you those precise cuts. It will stay sharp for so much longer.
I love to have a few on hand in case I am working on a large project and notice my blade dulling up.
While you have a small scraper that can work great on smaller projects, an XL scraper is great for bigger projects.
If you have a larger work surface you are doing, invest in a larger scraper, it will speed up the process and give you a smooth clean finish to your design.
Our world is all about digital things. Why not have a Bluetooth adapter for your Cricut?
This gives you a little more freedom without bulky cords. It will talk wirelessly back and forth from the machine to your computer, laptop or even iPad!
I love mine, it was worth investing in to help give me more room to move about without walking or should I say tripping over the cords.
Get rid of any imperfections like wrinkles, bubbles, or kinks in your designs. This is great for using on vinyl projects, fabric, and even printmaking.
A great way to help your materials adhere better with a smooth finish.
