October Cricut Mystery Box

Cricut is a personal electronic cutting machine used in card making, scrapbooking, and crafting of all types. Cricut started selling mystery boxes which when they contain the cartridges are a terrific value! The cartridges that are needed to use the machine run anywhere from $30-$60 a piece. As you can see, adding to your collection of cartridges can add up quick.

The description said: The October Mystery Box is the ultimate winter survival kit. The contents are a mystery, but the box includes cartridges and supplies to keep you crafting all winter long. This month's mystery box is over a $119 value.

The price of this months cricut mystery box was $29.99 plus shipping of $7.95. They usually have deals for shipping though so be sure and look for one.

This is the complete box.

The two cartridges that came in the box.

This is something I totally wasn't expecting but it looks pretty awesome. 

Contents of box: 

Knifty Knitter Assorted Loom Series. Value = $9.99

Knifty Knitter project DVD. Value = $9.99

Terrifically Tacky Tape. Value = $4.19

Cricut Replacement Blade. Value = $9.99

12x12 Standard Grip Cutting Mat. Value = $12.99

Merry and Bright Cartridge. Value = $29.99

Teresa Collins December 25th cartridge. Value = $29.99

The total value of this box is $107.13. Again this didn't meet the promised $119 value but it still had some great items in it for $33.00. One cartridge alone cost that much. When I saw the knitting kit I was confused. It has nothing to do with Cricut except it's made by the same company. The closer I looked at it though I thought it looked pretty cool. I don't know how to knit and I don't have a strong desire to learn but this thing looks like it will make it easy. Since I have it I'm going to give it a try, all I need is some yarn. This box also came with more cutting mats which I really don't need right now but they are handy to have. It also came with replacement blades for the cricut which will be good to have in back up. I was super glad the cartridges that came in this months box were ones that I don't have.

Verdict: If you are into Cricut and don't have a lot of cartridges the mystery boxes with cartridges in them is a great deal.
