A guide to Cricut Mats


Each Cricut mat was created for different materials and purposes.  This means that each of the mats has a different level of stickiness. 
These range from a strong adhesive for heavy projects to light adhesive to light weight projects.

All of these mats come in different sizes, the most popular ones being 12x12, or 12x24. 

I recommend getting your Cricut mats from Joann's when they are 30% off. Those are the best prices I have found, by far.
