It’s almost gift giving time, which means my Twelve Days of Gift Guides is back for 2019. This year, though, since you know how much I love my Cricut Maker, I’m giving you a full supply list of what you need to get started with 10 affordable gifts for Cricut beginners.
ONE | Basic Tool Set – If you have any type of Cricut machine, this is the single-most important tool set you need. I mean, how have you survived without it so far??
TWO | Machine Mat Variety Pack – It’s super smart to have extra machine mats on hand for big projects, multiple materials, and replacing old ones when they get too dirty to use anymore.
THREE | Transfer Tape – You can never have too much transfer tape. It’s the one material Cricut Crafters blow through like pink Starburst.
FOUR | Portable Trimmer 12” – I use this trimmer for literally everything I need to cut. From vinyl to stickers to photos to coupons from the newspaper.
FIVE | EasyPress 2 9×9 – This is the medium-sized Easy Press Iron, and the one from my collection that I use most often.
SIX | Ultimate Fine Point Pen Set – Did you know your Cricut can write any font with pens? If you haven’t mastered a hand-lettering class, these pens are about to be your new BFF.
SEVEN | Cricut Access Membership – Want to gift someone the ultimate Cricut present? My biggest recommendation is to buy them a Cricut Access Membership. You can pay annually or monthly and they’ll get access to tons of members-only fonts and images in Design Space. You’ll totally get the biggest piece of pecan pie for a gift like that.
EIGHT | Vinyl Variety Pack Squares – If you hate dealing with rolls of vinyl, these flat 12×12 sheets of vinyl will keep you from accidentally cussing in front of your kids out of pure frustration.
NINE | Self Healing Mat 18×24 – This cutting mat is large and in charge! I use it multiple times a week, for way more than just Cricut projects. My kiddo hacks it for lego building mat, too.
TEN | TrueControl Knife Kit – This handy utility knife comes with extra blades and has an awesome no-touch blade replacement system so you’ll never need your kids’ cartoon band-aids again.
