I found the perfect craft storage cart for the Cricut machine. I get asked all the time how I store and use my machine so I thought I would share that with y’all today. The best part? It is super inexpensive and you can get it right on Amazon. Now that is a win-win y’all.
First a little back story as to how I found this cart. I was on the hunt for a shelf on wheels that would fit my Cricut as well as my other cutting machines. The cart needed to be open in the front and back to allow for the mat to move without me needing to move the machine. It also needed to be sturdy and able to hold up to daily use. Plus it needed to be cute! This is in my living room so I needed something that would fit in with my rustic farmhouse style. Finally, I was on a budget and needed something affordable. That is a big ask for one tiny craft storage cart.
I literally searched for hours on a ton of websites. Everything either wouldn’t fit the machine or had a lip so the mat could not move or was not on wheels. If I did find something, the price was way over budget. I finally landed on the cart of my dreams!
This three tier metal and wood cart is the perfect size. It fits the Cricut machines and even the Silhouette perfectly. The open front and back allow you to cut right on the cart. The shelves are even far enough apart so you can open the machines. It is super affordable and looks great as well! A few notes:
- The three tier cart is the only one that works with the cutting machines. The others are too narrow as I own the four tier version as well.
- The product comes with some assembly required. I did not have any issues assembling but I have seen some reviews on Amazon where others had issues.
- The shelves are really sturdy but they are not real wood. They are pressed wood with a laminate to look like rustic wood over the top.
I can store all of my machines on this craft storage cart and run them there as well. I just roll this out and towards my desk and start cutting. So perfect and so cute! I love it when a plan comes together! So, click here to get your own on Amazon and happy crafting!
I am starting over with my crafting and focusing on card making as well as altered tags.
Way back in my early scrapbooking days, we embossed things using a heat gun. I was seeing a lot of machines and embossing folders, none of which I knew how to use.
I was lucky to get both an original Sizzix and a Spellbinders Grand Caliber.
I am looking at a Cricut CRV001 and wondering what would be a decent price and also if it would be easier to use as opposed to the others.. The auction is on the 15th of this month. If you think it would be a good fit for me or if I should just start out with the other 2 until I know what I am doing, I would greatly appreciate your input.
This auction also has shipping & handling of 1 penny which doesn’t happen very often.
Thanks in advance,
The Cricut CRV001 is an older machine that takes cartridges. I personally would recommend going with one of the newer ones that do not. They are much more user friendly in my opinion!
Love your area !!! Wanted to ask how big is this room/area?? I am wanting to put a day bed/sofa sleeper in my crafting room and just seeing that you have the day bed in yours..I am wanting to do the same..
It’s always such a blessing when you find the right fit for your crafts.
I’m thinking of getting this cart for my Cricut.
Question: Do you ever use the long 12×24” mats in this set up? If so, do you have any issues with the mat sliding or falling down while it’s cutting, since it would hang well off the shelves on this cart?
I use my long mats with this without issue!
Wow nice idea for storage. Thanks for sharing this information with us.
Just bought one based on your recommendation! Assembled easily and looks great! Looks like it will be perfect and was just as you described.
I have a question regarding the cart you have with all 3 die cutting machines. The question is do the trays slide out?
They do not slide out.
