Cricut Cuties! 19 Crazy Cricut Products You Never Knew Existed!
What are the craziest Cricut products!?
Ok, so some of these products you will have heard of before, but I’m sure there are going to be some that totally blow your mind!
Most of these items are official Cricut products, but a few of them are just the wonderful inventions of creative people with 3D Printers and a love of Cricut.
Let’s get into them!
1. Cricut Cutie
Have you always wanted to get yourself a Cricut Cutie!? I see them all the time on crafters/bloggers sites and think they’re just adorable!
These limited edition collectible Cricut figurines are super cute, but can be hard to find. The Cuties are for sale on Ebay (often at eye-watering prices), or they can be found from time to time in different Cricut promotions.
Every now and again you will find them as part of a Cricut Mystery Box (as was the case on Black Friday), or perhaps a vinyl or iron-on bundle will include one.
2. Cricut Dry Erase Vinyl
Cricut Dry Erase Vinyl – the name speaks for itself, but had you heard of it before?
This is an adhesive vinyl that can be applied to any clean dry surface. It 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
3. Cricut QuickSwap Tools Holder
This is a tool holder made especially for holding the Cricut Maker tools!
It’s a great little storage container for the QuickSwap Housing and blade tips. Crafting is always more efficient when everything has its own place!
4. Cricut Acetate Sheets
Cricut Acetate Sheets are another product which complements many projects.
These are sheets of flexible plastic that can be cut and used for all sorts of things (especially 3D projects)! 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)
- Masks and other kids costume accessories
5. Cricut Pen Adapters
These Cricut Pen Adapters are another great Cricut Etsy creation.
They allow you to use basically any pen (hello, glitter!), marker, or crayon with your Explore Air or Maker machines. This may save you a ton of money! For more info and buying options check out this Cricut pen adpater article.
6. Cricut Self Healing Cutting Mats
‘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!
7. Cricut TrueControl Knife
The Cricut Xacto Knife aka 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. It’s perfect for salvaging any less than perfect cuts.
Features of the Truecontrol Knife are:
- Blade-lock system for control and easy blade changes
- Premium steel cutting blades
- Comfortable grip
- Storage cartridge with additional blade set
- Cut thin fabrics & plastics, paper, cardstock, and more
8. Cricut Mystery Box
Cricut Mystery Boxes are a lot of fun!
These are bundles of Cricut materials collected together to celebrate a holiday or other event (like the release of a movie)! Often they come with vinyl and iron-on, along with other items like pens, or cardstock. They are a nice way to expand your DIY/scrapbooking game with a unique material kit.
Check out our Cricut Mystery Box guide for more info!
9. Cricut Totes
There are two different types of Cricut Tote Bag on display here.
Each is purchased separately and serve different purposes.
- The upper bag is the Cricut Machine Tote which stores & carries Cricut cutting machines
- The lower bag is the Cricut Rolling Craft Tote which carries all your tools, materials, & accessories
The stylish and heavy duty Cricut tote bags are well worth purchasing, especially if you travel with your Cricut machine. Plus, this raspberry color is so rich!
10. Cricut Printable Vinyl
Cricut Printable Vinyl may be a little more familiar to many of you.
Using an inkjet printer you print onto the vinyl. Your Cricut cutting machine will cut around the image to your specifications, using printed registration marks from Cricut Design Space.
What can you make with Printable Vinyl?
- Colorful stickers for kids
- Stickers and decals for a planner or journal
- Labels for storage containers
- Labels for cupboards and doors

11. Cricut Infusible Ink
Cricut Infusible Ink is one of the coolest products!
The process of using these transfer sheets is not that different from using Cricut Iron On. You still use a Cricut Easypress or other heat press to apply the design. However, because this is a type of sublimation printing, the result is very different
The ink transfer becomes one with the fabric and colors the garment, rather than sitting on top like HTV. There are a large range of patterned designs or solid colors. Infusible Ink review here!
12. Cricut Kraftboard
Cricut Kraftboard is a thicker card that can be cut with your Cricut Explore or Maker machine.
It is for sale in 3 colors: Natural, Black, or White (combo packs with all 3 colors also for sale).

Did you know Cricut have their own range of Faux Leather? This sample pack comes with 5 sheets of 12 x 12 inch pebbled faux leather in 5 colors: Black, Cafe, Copper, Sapphire, and Peacock (Cricut have a great knack for naming colors!).
Other than the Sampler Pack, you can purchase:
- The range of Pebbled Faux Leather separately in 10 different colors
- Or Cricut Woodgrain Textured Faux Leather separately in 5 different colors
Faux leather is great for card or scrap-booking embellishments, small fashion accessories (a girl’s purse), dolls clothing, and so on.
14. Cricut Window Cling
Cricut Window Cling is a great product for holiday window decorations, especially Christmas! Last Christmas we made a ton of window decorations with Window Cling.
It is a thin vinyl that is applied to the inside of your windows, and which can be easily removed. It can also be stored and re-used.
Other ideas for Cricut Window Cling:
- Place on vases for temporary decorations

15. Cricut Explore Air 2 Colors
The Cricut Explore Air 2 isn’t the crazy part here, it’s the huge range of Cricut Colors that you can choose from!
I recently discovered that there are 22 different Cricut Explore Air 2 colors , with different colors available through different retailers. Can you believe it!
Some of my favorites include Periwinkle, Boysenberry, and Wild Rose. If I had to choose my Air 2 again, I don’t know how I would decide now that I know all the options!
16. Cricut Sewing Kit
The Cricut Sewing Kit is a great little set and contains 7 sewing essentials.
