Since getting my Cricut Machine, I’ve made so many amazing craft and DIY projects – many more that I would never have thought I could have made before. With a Cricut machine, anything is possible! It makes crafts so much easier and faster to create. I was making all kinds of personalized gifts for my friends and family and learning all kinds of new crafting techniques.
If you’re new to crafting with a Cricut, you might be wondering what the best accessories are for it. After all, you want to get crafting and make as many amazing projects as you can too! Today, I’m sharing my favorite and most used Cricut Tools And Accessories That You Need to use with your Cricut Machine.
- CRICUT CUTTING MATS
Cricut mats come in various sizes and types. There are some projects that work best with the LightGrip mats, some that work better with StrongGrip, and one mat designed for fabric! The success of your project depends on the mat that you’ll use, so it’s very important to choose the right mat. If you wanted to know more about the different types of mats, what to use, and how to clean it. You can learn more here.
- CRICUT TOOL SET
The Cricut Tool Set is a must-have! It includes all the tools you need to start crafting with your Cricut! From scissors to scrapers, and maybe a few tools you don’t think you’ll need, but you definitely will.
This set includes:
- Scissors with protective blade cover – provide precision cuts with all materials
- Tweezers- to lift and secure delicate material
- Weeder- to remove tiny negative cuts
- Spatula- to lift cuts from the mat
- Scraper- to burnish material and clean all cutting mats
CRICUT BRIGHT PAD
The Cricut Bright Pad has an adjustable LED light that has five brightness settings. It makes crafting easier and it illuminates fine lines for tracing, especially if you’re weeding. Some find weeding challenging, and one of the best tips I usually recommend for them is to use the Cricut Bright Pad.

- CRICUT PENS
I just love the Cricut Pens! They have tons of different colors and a wide variety of pen sets that are perfect for any of my DIY projects such as invitations, cards, gift tags, banners and much more. I usually use these whenever I create any Write and Cut projects. If you haven’t created a Write and Cut project here’s a super easy tutorial on how to do it.
- CRICUT VINYL
You can’t miss using these gorgeous Cricut Vinyls for your craft projects! Cricut has over 42 vinyl colors to choose from. I recently created a tutorial on How to Use Printable Vinyl, but there are more types of vinyl that you could use depending on the craft project you’ll create. Some are the Holographic Vinyl, Outdoor Vinyl, Glitter Vinyl, Premium Vinyl, Iron-On Vinyl and so on.
- CRICUT BAG AND TOTE
Since I’m always on the go, having the Cricut Bag makes it easy for me to travel without missing out on crafting. Whether I’m going to my friend’s house to hang out, or when I visit my grandma’s house. I especially love it when I attended any crafting events.
