DIY Cricut Cart for Your Favorite Cricut Supplies

So I’ve got space problems, guys. Like you say “dedicated space” and I say “what’s that?”. Nothing in the house seems to have a dedicated space. It just goes where I can fit it because my crafting ambitions literally belly laughed when we moved into this place.

This means I’m forced to get more than just a little creative with my storage options. And when I got my new EasyPress and Bright Pad from Cricut, I knew a DIY Cricut cart was comin.

Can’t read this now? Pin this image to save this post for later!

So, like all reasonable crafters in need of storage, I went to Ikea.

Which, regardless of what Disney says, is truly the happiest place on Earth.

First thing I did was get me a RASKOG cart (because the three in my house being used for children’s books, cloth diapers and children’s crafts were obviously not enough).


amzn_assoc_placement = “adunit0”;
amzn_assoc_search_bar = “true”;
amzn_assoc_tracking_id = “dibyclub0f-20”;
amzn_assoc_search_bar_position = “bottom”;
amzn_assoc_ad_mode = “search”;
amzn_assoc_ad_type = “smart”;
amzn_assoc_marketplace = “amazon”;
amzn_assoc_region = “US”;
amzn_assoc_title = “Pick up a RASKOG”;
amzn_assoc_default_search_phrase = “RASKOG”;
amzn_assoc_default_category = “All”;
amzn_assoc_linkid = “8890b7fc6b35ec02085e9dba99ff8876”;

Next, I grabbed a pack of PLUTT self-adhesive hooks for my cutting mats. If you don’t have an IKEA nearby, the Command Strip versions will work just as well. Just make sure you get some with a decent weight limit. I’m holding up (6) 24″ mats and (2) 13″ mats on mine.


amzn_assoc_placement = “adunit0”;
amzn_assoc_tracking_id = “dibyclub0f-20”;
amzn_assoc_ad_mode = “search”;
amzn_assoc_ad_type = “smart”;
amzn_assoc_marketplace = “amazon”;
amzn_assoc_region = “US”;
amzn_assoc_default_search_phrase = “sticky hooks”;
amzn_assoc_default_category = “All”;
amzn_assoc_linkid = “8890b7fc6b35ec02085e9dba99ff8876”;
amzn_assoc_design = “in_content”;

The BrightPad is a shockingly useful gadget. When I first got mine, I thought it would end up tucked away in a corner somewhere and used very rarely. Then Christmas crafting happened and I quickly realized how insanely useful it was. I knew I’d want to have it close on hand.

Instead of just throwing it in the cart, I saved some space by sticking velcro to the backside of the BrightPad and the side of the cart. This way I can just pull it off when I need it and stick it back on when I don’t and save the cart space for other items.


amzn_assoc_placement = “adunit0”;
amzn_assoc_tracking_id = “dibyclub0f-20”;
amzn_assoc_ad_mode = “search”;
amzn_assoc_ad_type = “smart”;
amzn_assoc_marketplace = “amazon”;
amzn_assoc_region = “US”;
amzn_assoc_default_search_phrase = “sticky velcro”;
amzn_assoc_default_category = “All”;
amzn_assoc_linkid = “8890b7fc6b35ec02085e9dba99ff8876”;
amzn_assoc_design = “in_content”;
amzn_assoc_title = “Self Adhesive Velcro”;

I began this project primarily to create a storage spot for my EasyPress. I’ve never been so in love with a not-really-necessary piece of crafting equipment. I plowed through a dozen HTV shirts for Christmas in a blink with this thing. I wanted it easily mobile and ready to use – so into the top it went.

Next, I needed something for my weeding tools, pens and power cords. So I went with mason jars because – well – mason jars…


amzn_assoc_placement = “adunit0”;
amzn_assoc_tracking_id = “dibyclub0f-20”;
amzn_assoc_ad_mode = “search”;
amzn_assoc_ad_type = “smart”;
amzn_assoc_marketplace = “amazon”;
amzn_assoc_region = “US”;
amzn_assoc_default_search_phrase = “pint sized mason jars”;
amzn_assoc_default_category = “All”;
amzn_assoc_linkid = “8890b7fc6b35ec02085e9dba99ff8876”;
amzn_assoc_title = “Order Mason Jars”;
amzn_assoc_design = “in_content”;

The bottom two sections hold my different materials. HTV, faux leather and fabric paint on the middle rack and adhesive vinyl, stencil material and transfer paper on the bottom.

So there you have it! Some small, simple storage for all the pretty little things.

  1. I know you say to get the cart at Ikea, but just want to let others know the very similar one at Michael’s does NOT work! It is a tiny bit too small for the Easy Press.
