September Cricut Mystery Box

You guys know I love a mystery box and not just beauty boxes. Several months ago I discovered cricut also sells mystery boxes. Cricut is a personal electronic cutting machine used in card making, scrapbooking, and crafting of all types. I have a cricut and I don't use it enough but when I do use it I also think to myself "This thing is amazing, I need to use it more often." 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 September Mystery Box is all about fall décor. The contents are a mystery, but the box includes cartridges and tools to make welcoming decorations this fall season. This month's mystery box is over a $100 value. 

The price of this months cricut mystery box was $29.99 and they were offering free shipping which is normally $7.95.

September Cricut Mystery Box.

The two included cartridges. 

Contents of box with retail price and sale price listed on the Cricut website: 

Cricut 12 x 24 cutting mats. Value = $17.99/$11.69

Cricut vinyl in midnight. Value = $6.99/$4.54

Cricut Southwest Cardstock. Value = $9.99/$6.49

Cricut A Frightful Affair Cartridge. Value = $39.99

Cricut Tablescapes - Fall & Winter Cartridge. Value = $19.99/$13.99

The total value of this box is $76.70 based on the prices listed on the cricut website. If you use the items regular retail price the value is $94.95. Now don't get me wrong this is still a terrific value considering the two cartridges you get BUT it doesn't hit the promised over $100 value. I am really, really, really going to try hard to get my Cricut out before halloween and get some projects done. I would love to make some window clings or wall decorations with the vinyl that came in this box. 

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.

  1. I've been missing your blog since I don't get emails anymore and noticed I don't get them for my blog either. Do you know what's going on with the blogger emails not going thru?

    1. I didn't know there was an issue with the emails. Did you get the confirmation email from blogger and click the link to confirm your subscription? I forgot to do that once on a blog I subscribed to.
