Cricut Dry Erase Vinyl – the name speaks for itself, but had you heard about it!? This is an adhesive vinyl that can be applied to any clean dry surface, and can then be written on with a dry erase marker and wiped clean! It is a non-permanent vinyl that will adhere well, but will also be easily removed with no residue.


Some ideas for what to make with Dry Erase Vinyl:

  • Speech bubbles with a different word for the day each day
  • Labels on pantry or fridge storage containers
  • Message boards


With Cricut Explore machines, this product is cut with the dial turned to Vinyl. Further Cricut Dry Erase Vinyl cutting and application instructions here.

2. Cricut Acetate Sheets

Cricut Acetate Sheets are an extra cool product to complement many projects. They are sheets of flexible plastic that can be cut and used for all sorts of things. They come in a range of styles, from clear sheets, to sheets with metallic foil stars (as pictured above), and many others.


Cricut Acetate projects:

  • Acetate makes great photo frame overlays
  • 3D Pinwheels (it is certainly flexible enough for this)
  • Boxes
  • Masks and other kids costume accessories


The Cricut Foil Acetate pictured above is cut in the Explore machines with the dial set to custom, and then the ‘foil acetate’ option selected. See further cutting instructions here.

3. Cricut Self Healing Cutting Mats

*not for use in Cricut cutting machines

“A self healing cutting mat?! What kind of voodoo is this…?!” – Usually one’s first thought upon hearing about these mats for the first time. What are they? Self-healing cutting mats have a softer surface than the regular Cricut cutting mats. Rather than skimming the surface of the mat, you can cut slightly into the top layer, which then closes back over (or “self heals”)!


These mats are not for use in Cricut cutting machines, but they are great for other craft cutting with an Xacto Knife, or with the next item on our list – the Cricut Truecontrol Knife!

Cricut’s version of the Xacto Knife is the Truecontrol Knife! It is a quality craft cutting knife available in three different colors: Blue, Lilac, or Rose. It can also be bought as part of a set with 5 additional blades.

6. Cricut Cartridge Adaptor

The Cricut Cartridge Adapter is a cool little device that you can use to import the files from Cricut Cartridges into Design Space without using a Cricut machine.


You can already import your old cartridges by using the slot on the Explore range of Cricut machines, but the Cricut Maker does not have the ability to import cartridges. The slot was (rightfully) done away with. However, if you have the Maker and have come across some old cartridges, use the Cricut Cartridge Adapter to bring over those designs into Cricut Design Space.

7. Cricut Printable Vinyl
