It’s so much fun to explore all the Cricut tools and accessories that are available for Maker, Explore, and Joy. The additional blades and tools really let you turn your Cricut into much more than just a cutting machine!
The different tools and blades let you expand the range of materials you can work with for your crafting projects.
Cut vinyl, fabric, wood, leather, and more! Or use the pens and markers to create beautiful paper crafting projects like cards and labels. You can engrave, deboss, score, or add foil effects to a variety of materials to add texture and interest.
There is no limit to what you can do with your machine and the Cricut tools once you know what each is used for and how to use it! For project ideas, check out our Cricut Projects archive.
Here’s a quick table showing which Cricut tools are available for each machine. For an in-depth look at the Cricut Maker tools, read my post Cricut Maker Tools Explained – Your Ultimate Guide for Tools and Blades.

Where to Buy Cricut Tools
All the major craft retailers like Joann, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby sell Cricut products. Be aware though, that storewide sales and coupons do not apply to Cricut products. There will be separate promotions for Cricut products when they go on sale. Check the details on any coupons you have to see if Cricut is included or not. It’s usually listed in the exclusions when it’s not.
You can also purchase tools, accessories, and machines from Cricut’s shop directly. There are some great deals to be had when buying from Cricut so keep an eye out for sales and promotions!
Amazon also offers a wide selection of Cricut products in the Cricut store. The prices usually match whatever Cricut has in their store but the benefit to Amazon is the fast and free shipping for Prime members.
I will mention that lately I’ve noticed on Amazon there are companies selling products for Cricut that aren’t actually Cricut-branded products. Their packaging very closely resembles the Cricut packaging so it’s easy to mistake it for the real thing. The only difference is that the Cricut logo is missing. If you’re shopping on Amazon, be sure to read the description and find out who the seller is. If it’s not Cricut, it’s probably one of these companies.
It’s not that you can’t use products other than official Cricut products in your machine. But it could possibly void your warranty if using a third-party product damages your machine. Always read the fine print and make a decision that you’re comfortable with!
