I know the tools & accessories for the Cricut can be overwhelming when you’re first starting out – so I made a list of all the items I love and would recommend from Amazon…
the amazing machine that does it all!
Cricut transfer paper
for transferring vinyl on cardstock, wood signs, etc (it’s on the stickier side – I also like Angel craft paper listed below)
heat transfer vinyl – for making shirts – remember to FLIP DESIGN HORIZONTALLY before cutting
Cricut tools and mats
tools to weed vinyl after design is cut, mats for cutting
White removable Oracle 651 vinyl
to make stencils for wood signs, can be used for cardstock – this is a matte vinyl (you can also choose glossy depending on your preference)
TOTAL (10.8.18): $300.51
I think these items are optional depending on what you are using your Cricut for…
for gift tags, cards
White permanent vinyl
for etching, tumbler decorations, decals for washable items
Angel craft transfer paper
for transferring vinyl on cardstock, wood signs
Permanent vinyl pack Oracle 651
for tumbler designs, anything you might want to wash or car decals – I really love this brand!
and…when you know you love doing all this – these tools will make it even better:
makes heat more consistent than iron – super awesome!
a “must have” with the EasyPress to provide a flat surface for transferring designs onto material
It’s super fun once you get started – I promise you can do it!! Good luck! Join my fb group cricut crafting mamas with heartcraft girl for more ideas & mama inspiration – you are welcome to post a question there if you get stuck on something! We’d LOVE to have you share projects too!
