Cricut Hacks Every Cricut Owner NEEDS to Know!

If you own a Cricut, you need to invest time in learning fun Cricut hacks you’ll use every day. If you’re looking for innovative Cricut tricks, this is a great post for you. It will teach you some tips that can save you time, money, and frustration.

Once you know these Cricut Hacks Every Cricut Owner Needs to Know, you’ll find that you are not only enjoying making your die cutting craft projects even more, but you’ll be getting beautiful flawless results nearly every time! If you’re a die cutting enthusiast, you’re going to love these hacks!

First up, did you guys know that dryer sheets are something that you can use to help organize all of your weeded pieces? They will stick to the dryer sheet easily and allow you to get them organized all in one spot. The best part is, you don’t even have to use brand new dryer sheets. Used ones work perfectly! Upcycle them and contain all those weeded pieces so that they aren’t all over your craft table or getting lost.

Next up, if you have a standard or light grip mat that has lost some of its stickiness, your craft project would be ruined by the vinyl moving around. So, here’s a great little hack for you to secure it down and get an even longer life out of your Cricut mat. Use some painter’s tape.

We already use painter’s tape to secure chipboard down to our mats when working with the knife blade, so why not use it for standard vinyl projects too? One thing I love about this is that if some of the painter’s tape is on the vinyl, it’ll cut through the painter’s tape perfectly without ruining your project. You can then peel it up easily as if it were never there. In the meantime though, it’s going to help secure your vinyl to the mat.

We all want to get the longest life out of our mats, right? This is one way to extend that mat! If you want your project to be super secure, tape it down all over every side, but for most vinyl craft projects, a few pieces on each corner and in the middle of each side will do the trick on those mats that have lost most of their stickiness.

Did you guys know that Harbor Freight has affordable weeding tools? In fact, these are insanely affordable! They are surgically sharp, stainless steel and work really well with vinyl craft projects. If you are really interested in all the details about shopping for die cutting tools and supplies at Harbor Freight, we have a great video talking about this in detail.

Our next tip is about organizing your Cricut mats. We love to hang ours on the wall using Command Hooks. This is a really easy way to organize your craft mats and make sure they stay clean and ready to use. Of course, remember to always be sure to put that clear piece back on your mat too. It’s super important for keeping them dust-free and sticky! Hanging them up means you can always see your mats and you can always find just the one you need!

Lastly, did you guys know that you can use contact paper as an alternative to transfer tape? It works way better than cling wrap for the same price. You can find contact paper in so many places – the dollar store, Walmart, Target, and so on! Try out a few different brands until you find the one you like best. They do sometimes have different amounts of stickiness to them so you might just find you have a preference for one over another.
