Do you know what a Cricut Mystery Box is exactly?
Let me tell you, you are in for a treat.
Here's the Short Answer
A Cricut Mystery Box is a collection of Cricut materials and accessories that are all bundled together and offered up by Cricut for a low and very desirable price.
But Here Is a Better Explanation
Just about every month Cricut releases a new bundle of goodies that they call a Mystery Box.
Inside this “box” are lots of supplies that you can use with your Cricut machine.
If you were to buy each item separately and add up the cost of each one, the total would be a lot more than the price that you pay for the entire Cricut Mystery Box.
Basically it's a great way to build up your collection of Cricut supplies and get a little surprise in the process.

There Is No “Catch” to the Cricut Mystery Box
Of course, you must be thinking that there is a catch – after all why would Cricut offer such a deal?
Well, there are a few rules, but I wouldn't exactly call them a catch.
First, the Cricut Mystery Box is not returnable or refundable.
So, basically, you get what you get and you don't get upset.
Second, you don't really know what is in the box because it is – well – a mystery after all.
Some bloggers seem to get advanced copies of the Mystery Box, so you might see a preview somewhere online.
But Cricut does state that they may substitute items based on availability – so there is a chance that you won't get exactly what you think you are getting, and you have to be ok with that.
Third, and this is a biggie, there are only limited quantities available!
Let me tell you – they do sell out quickly. Some months I see that they are available for a few days before they sell out – but other months I have seen them sell out in hours.
Yes – hours.
So, if you really want it – don't hesitate, just order.
What Is Inside the Cricut Mystery Box?
As I said before – the Cricut Mystery Box contents are a mystery.
But to give you an idea, past items have included (obviously not all in one box):
- rolls of removable vinyl
- rolls of permanent vinyl
- Cricut transfer tape rolls
- Cricut mats for the machines
- rolls of iron on htv
- pens for your Cricut machine
- foil acetate
- washi tape sheets
- Cricut tool sets
- machine blades
As you can see, you can make out like a bandit.
Themed Mystery Boxes
Sometimes the Cricut Mystery Box will revolve around a particular theme.
These themes could include
- licensed characters,
- or even something like stuff for the Cricut Cuttlebug die cut and embossing machine.
Cricut Digital Mystery Boxes
From time to time Cricut will also offer up a Digital Mystery Box.
These digital boxes are not physical things that come in the mail.
Rather, they are digital assets that you can access in Cricut Design Space.
The ones that I have seen have things that you cannot normally get in Cricut Access, even with a subscription.
And it also seems that they include licensed materials that like Star Wars, Marvel, or Disney.
