The Best Cricut Tools You NEED for Cricut Crafts
The tools below are great additions to your Cricut machine. For information on mats and blades that you use in your machine, click here to see our post on Cricut accessories.
- Rotary Cutter – you need to cut any fabric you use on your Cricut machine to 12 inches wide. This rotary cutter will allow you to do that with ease.
- Scraper – these are a lifesaver when applying vinyl to a surface. I also use them to make sure that the transfer paper is adhered well.
- Weeder or perhaps the entire Weeding Tool Set – I can’t live without weeding tools. These help you to remove the excess vinyl before you add it to your final project.
- Sewing Kit – the Cricut Maker is a life saver when it comes to crafting with fabric. Add this sewing kit to complete your arsenal.
- Portable Trimmer – if you are a paper crafter, a trimmer is a must! This one is small and portable which I personally love.
- Scoring Stylus – need to score paper and not cut it? You need one of these tools!
- Brayer – this tool is perfect for extending the life of your fabric mat. Use it to really press that fabric into the mat and get more uses per mat.
- Tweezers – another tool that helps extend the life of your fabric mat. The oils in your fingers can affect the adhesive so use these tweezers to pick up your fabric pieces.
- Scissors – yes you can use any scissors, but this small pair is perfect for keeping close to your machine.
- Spatula – seriously so much help when it comes to removing tiny paper bits and pieces from your mat.
