November 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. 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 $120 value.

The price of this months cricut mystery box was $29.99 plus shipping of $7.95. This month they has a deal. Buy two boxes and get $10 off and I found a code for free shipping. The total cost of both boxes were $53.61 or $26.80 each. I bought an extra because I had a feeling my friend might want this one. If she doesn't no worries. I'm sure I can find someone who wants it or there is always eBay.

The two cartridges included this month. 

Contents of box with prices from the Cricut website listed. 
The first price is the regular price and the second price is the sale price listed. 

Cricut Cuttables Adhesive-backed stencil material. Value = $11.99/7.19

Cricut Tool Organizer. Value = $12.99/7.79

Universal Overlay for new new cartridges. Value = $2.99/1.79

Cricut German Carbide Premium replacement blade. Value = $12.99/7.79

Wrap It Up cartridge. Value = $39.99/14.99

Teddy Bear Parade cricut lite cartridge. Value = $39.99/19.99

The total value of this box is $120.94 or $54.54 using the current sale prices. Finally the box met the promised $120 value. Even though all of this stuff is on sale I know they are basing the value on regular price. Luckily I don't have either one of the these cartridges so they had value to me. The cuttables material lets you cut out stencils. A lot of people will use them to paint walls, fabrics, windows or whatever they want a stenciled picture on. The overlay is used with the older cricut machines and the new cartridges. I already have one and since you only need one I don't really have a use for this. The replacement place is more durable than their regular blades so I'm cool with having this on hand. The tool organizer is cute but as of right now I don't have a dedicated craft space in my house so I don't have anywhere to put it. The Wrap It Up cartridge has lots of various images and tag cutouts. The Teddy Bear care has all kinds of bears in different costumes.

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.
