Search Tips

As many of you know, my family created the website CricutSearch.com which allows you to search for images that are on the Cricut Cartridges and preview those images so that you can easily find the perfect cut for your project. 

I have gotten a couple of emails over the past few weeks with people asking questions about using CricutSearch, so I am going to try to answer questions as well as give you tips on ways to use the site that you might not have even known about.

Question:  I like to make boxes and tags with my Cricut . . . can you tell me which cartridges have cuts for boxes or tags?  I tried typing boxes and tags into Cricut Search but did not get the results that I thought I would.

Answer:  Yes, you can search for cuts of boxes and tags on Cricut Search, but you need to remember that everything is tagged for the singular version of a word.  So, to find the cartridges that have cuts for boxes and tags, you would need to type the word box or tag into the search bar.

If you have a question about Cricut Search or ways you can use it, let us know and maybe we will use your question in one of our Search Tips posts.

  1. Thanks for the tip about the singular word phrase. I also was looking for an Ant and could not find anything, but by searching for Bug, I found something I could use. Love the Cricut Search.

  2. Thank you. Our daughter went to a ghost town on her way from Orange County California to Las Vegas. Now she would like to find a Cricut Cartridge that would go with a ghost town. She wanted more then Ghost. So I did a search and so far can't find one for that just yet. I well keep checking on it, something has to come up.

  3. If it was an Old West style ghost town, I would suggest the cartridge Old West . . . it has a saloon, general store, a fence, a lantern, cactus.

    If it is not an "old west" style ghost town, I would suggest searching the word house or building or maybe even an old school house. Search ghost will only give you the actual ghost, but to make the ghost town you might need to think about what was in that town that you can make ghost like.

  4. Great tip!
    I did a search for 'pillow box' & boy was I surprised that the cart, "Easter Solutions" came up with it!
