If you are looking for crafting blanks for your Cricut projects, look no further than Amazon! I’ve gathered over 100 blanks you can buy and get in 2 days or less!
If you’re anything like me, when you get the idea of something you want to make in your head, you want to make it RIGHT NOW! You don’t want to have to wait 5-7 days for your supplies to be delivered. Thankfully Amazon Prime has made it so you can get your orders in 2 days or less. My last 5 or 6 orders have come in one day which is even better!
I get asked all the time in our Cricut Support Facebook Group where the best place to buy crafting blanks is. And to be honest, unless you have a business license, Amazon is going to be the most affordable, quickest way to get your supplies. Even with a business license, a lot of times Amazon is the best place to go. Trust me, I’ve checked with my business accounts.
To make your life easier I’ve broken crafting blanks down into several different categories. If you want to see all 100+ blanks in one spot, check out the Tastefully Frugal Amazon Store. Need some help with designs to go on your blanks? My favorite I love getting SVG files and fonts from Design Bundles! They offer bundles with 1000’s of SVGs and fonts for $10-20 AND they have $1 sales several times a year where you can get bundles for just $1. Check out the current bundles available here.
Cups, Tumblers and Mugs
There are so many options when it comes to customizing and selling drinkware! From glitter tumblers to adding vinyl to tumblers or mugs, really the possibilities are endless. The MAARS brand is my favorite for tumblers and have had no issues with any of the cups or tumblers I’ve ordered.
Here is a great tutorial for applying vinyl to tumblers. This post is great for how to curve text to fit tumblers and cups. And if you want to learn how to add glitter to tumblers, Holli Mostella has the BEST tutorials! Click the pictures below for details on each product and/or to buy.

Tote Bags, Backpacks and Makeup Bags
There are so many options when it comes to HOW you customize bags (and they are all really easy to do) whether you use iron-on vinyl, permanent vinyl, or embroidery, you can make almost any bag unique and great sellers for craft fairs and events.

Adult Apparel (Shirts, Hoodies, Trucker Hats, etc)
When it comes to clothing there are SO many brands out there. While often you hear ‘you get what you pay for’ that isn’t always the case. When I had my shop I tried almost every brand of shirt/hoodie out there. My favorites, and my customers favorites were definitely Next Level Apparel and Bella+Canvas. For hats, the DALIX brand have held up great for me! I haven’t sold shirts for a few years now, but since then I have used the Amazon Essentials brand of shirts and joggers and they have been great too!

Children’s Apparel (Onesies, Shirts, Hoodies, etc)
If you’re anything like me, making clothing for babies and kids is your favorite project! Not only do they take less vinyl, hello money saver, but those little designs are just so dang cute! From my experience the Carter brand onesies fit better than the Gerber brand. I like using either the Walmart brand shirts for my kids or the Next Level Apparel brand as well.

Garden Flags, Wood Signs and Other Home Decor
If making kids clothes is my favorite vinyl craft, then making signs and home decor is definitely my second favorite! It’s always fun to add a little bit of you to your home, whether it’s in the form of something sweet, silly or a little bit sassy. If you’re making something for a customer or something you want to keep up forever, I suggest using iron-on vinyl. It wears better and is more durable. If it’s going to be temporary, Cricut’s removable vinyl is a great option!

I’ve found coasters are great gifts for the guys in your life! They almost always have a drink in their hand, and what guy doesn’t love their favorite logo, brand or saying on something around the house?! With Cricut’s new Infusible Ink, coaster projects are even more fun now (click here to see how to use the pens with the coasters).
There are lots of options when it comes to materials and types of coasters. You can check out my favorite types of coasters on Amazon here.
Aprons and Dish Towels
We talked about gifts for the guys, but how about the ladies?! Around Christmas and Mother’s Day, my biggest sellers were aprons and dish towels. Grandmas especially love getting aprons and there are so many fun kitchen and cooking sayings you can put on dish towels. Plus they are one of the more affordable blanks to buy and make a profit with!
Looking for easy items to take to craft shows that don’t take up a lot of space and that sell like crazy?! Keychains are the way to go! They appeal to the masses and buying in bulk won’t cost you a fortune.
Popsicle Holders and Koozies
These are big sellers (and money makers) during the summer months. You can buy blanks for $1 or less and sell them for $5+. Plus they don’t take up much room to store so if you buy more than you sell, they won’t take up TOO much room in the off season.
Stuffed Animals and Other Toys
Keepsake stuffed animals are super popular right now! You can use iron-on vinyl on stuffed elephants, bears or even the ever popular Baby Shark. But it doesn’t just stop at stuffed animals! You can customize puzzles, blocks and even Jenga types games to give as gifts to kids quickly and easily.
