TikTok has some of the best ideas – and there’s no exception when it comes to crafting and Cricut. Here are some of the best ideas I found on TikTok!
Earlier this year, I really got into TikTok.
I scoffed at TikTok for the longest time, and then I realized how many amazing ideas were on there!
One thing I discovered pretty quickly was that the crafting community has shown up there, which is AMAZING – especially my Cricut friends.
I am constantly finding new tips and tricks to make Cricut crafting a little more efficient. I mean, I already knew quite a few Cricut Hacks, but some of these are just plain brilliant.
So today, I gathered a bunch of my favorite Cricut hacks that I learned on TikTok. I have embedded the original video (that I saw) below for you to watch!
Some of these are better than others, so make sure to watch them all. You never know – you might learn something learn!
Dollar Tree Clips
When I first saw this one, I was kind of like…ehhhh. But I can see the appeal of doing this, especially if you feel like you are losing a bit of vinyl when trying to trim the vinyl down to size for the mat.
Fix Filled in Spots
I was so excited to see this one, because I have this happen SO much. There’s nothing more annoying when you are making a design and a space just randomly fills in.
Crayola Markers Perfect Fit
I’ve always known that you can use different pens with your Cricut, but sometimes they require a little adjustment. Not Crayola Thin Markers – they fit right in the tool holder!
Get More Stickers on Print, then Cut
Brilliant! It has always bugged me how much space I was wasting. This was definitely a new one to me.
Best Way to Apply Vinyl
This was specifically for applying vinyl to large projects, but I saw several other TikTok videos showing a similar technique for smaller items. This just all around seems brilliant.
Easily Add Vinyl to Tumblers
I don’t make a lot of cups, but I am definitely storing this one away for later (especially since I just got a tumbler cup turner!)
Cut Thin Text Easier
It is SO frustrating when this happens. Great tip that I saw many times on TikTok with rave results.
How to Make Offset Text
This is a really popular trend for text. I never knew how to make it in Cricut before! Super cool.
Rolled Flower Hack
Okay this is probably my favorite hack that I’ve seen! My mind was blown as I watched it. I HATE making paper flowers, and this just seemed to smart.
Keep Vinyl Flat
I didn’t feel like this was super amazing, just because I don’t feel like this is really a problem I have (or at least, it doesn’t bother me?). However, if you have a lot of rolled up vinyl, this one is handy!
Weeding Small Text
Weeding small text is not fun! This definitely makes it easier.
Homemade Weeding Tool
I’ve seen this one a lot, but it didn’t strike me as something I would use very often. However, it was one of the most popular hacks I saw, so I guess people love this idea. I also have about 20 weeding tools, haha!
Large Scraper Tool
Cricut does have an XL Scraper, but this is cheaper and looks awesome. Definitely going to make one of these next time I am able to get The Dollar Tree!
Another handy tip for layering!
Dollar Tree Vinyl Organization
Super smart way to use a dish rack from the Dollar Tree!
Silicone Layering Hack
This was another handy layering trick!
Makeup Powder for Easier Weeding
Baby powder is pretty common, so I thought this was another interesting, similar idea.
This seems pretty helpful, though for me, it takes too much work! But if you don’t mind making the design in Word first, not a big deal!
$3 Bright Pad Dupe
I loved this idea! Such a great and inexpensive idea.
Weeding Trash Can
I like that this has a way to get the vinyl off of your little tool and then dispose of them easily! Definitely a great way to use those old Lysol containers.
Vinyl Sheet Storage
Loved this idea for easy vinyl sheet storage. You can get these 12×12 photo albums for a pretty reasonable price.
Nail Polish Holder Weeding Collector
I had never even seen a nail polish holder ring until I saw this (and it seems awesome). I love simple tools like this!
Toilet Paper Roll Organization
This wasn’t my favorite, just because it seemed like too much work (but I also have A LOT of rolls of vinyl). Great for anyone who has trouble remembering what roll of vinyl is for what!
Want to have your Cricut on wheels? This is the tip for you!
I hope you learned something new. Did I miss your favorite TikTok Cricut hack?
