This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
Just when I think Cricut can’t possibly get any better, they came out with a whole new line of tools for the Maker.
These new blades offer Cricut users a new type of Cricut experience by allowing them to take their crafts to the next level.
There are 4 new tools in this line up and I love them all!!
Here’s a quick breakdown of all the tools.

Basic Perforation Blade – Create finely perforated lines for any design.
Get the perfect tear quickly and effortlessly with precise perforation cuts for a wide variety of projects. Evenly spaced perforation lines allow for clean, well-spaced tearing without the need to fold beforehand – especially great for shapes with curves. Perfect for tear-out booklet pages, raffle tickets, homemade journals, or for any project that demands a neat tear.
Wavy Blade – Go crazy with Wavy Blade:
Get a decorative edge in half the time than a drag blade with a gentle wave cut for a wide variety of projects. To add a whimsical wavy edge to any design, this specially sculpted stainless steel blade is great for original vinyl decals, iron-on designs, envelopes, cards, gift tags, collage projects, or any time you need fabulously finished edges and stylish design accents.
Fine Debossing Tip – Add elegance with pro-level debossing:
Add professional polish and elevated elegance to paper crafts by creating crisp, detailed debossed designs. Unlike folders, which lock you into a specific design, this rolling debossing ball, with a wider range of motion, gives you free reign to customize, personalize, and design with incredible intricacy. Creates a stunning effect on foil cardstock, coated paper, shimmer and glitter paper, basswood, and much more.
Engraving Tip – Turn any project into a keepsake:
Make a lasting impression with Cricut Engraving Tip. Watch with awe as you write personalized text or create monograms, draw decorative flourishes and embellishments, or inscribe your favorite quotes on a keepsake.
Here are two fun projects from Design Space that I made with the Debossing Tip and the Perforation Blade.
To test out the Debossing tip, I decided to make this chic case for sunglasses.
It was super easy to do. All I had to do was load the project and follow the step by step instructions in Design Space.
Cricut Design Space guides you 100% of the way through the project. It prompts you when you need to switch out your blades.
For this project, you need the Fine Debossing Tip and the Deep Cut Blade.
I love the fine details in the debossing and I think it turned out splendidly on the black genuine leather from Cricut.
This is a great beginner project to help you get a feel for the new Debossing tip. I can’t wait to see what I will create next with it!
I wanted to test out the Basic Perforation Blade as well. Can you imagine being able make your own raffle tickets or pull away tab cards!?
You can now!
I found this great seasons card in Design Space. Another perfect beginner project to help me get a feel for this new Maker Tool.
Again, all you have to do is follow the prompts from Design Space.
I popped the Perforation Blade into my Cricut Maker and watched it work its magic.
This project goes through a serious of different tools — pens, deep cut blade, scoring wheel and of course as mentioned the Perforation Blade.
It’s more steps than the first project but it was super fun to watch this interactive card come together.
Best part!? Peeling off the tabs of course!
Flawless and easy perforation, all thanks to the Cricut Maker Tools!
Also, you might notice my new organizers in the background — seriously, guys. Life changing for my workspace.
These little beauties are from Uniquely Whynot and I can’t say enough good things about this company.
If you want to pretty up your workspace, while gaining organizational function at the same time, get your hands on some of their organizers.
They are 3D printed and they are made with Cricut tools in mind. Check them out here.
