Introducing the latest in Cricut Maker’s expandable suite of tools: Scoring Wheel and Double Scoring Wheel! For all you paper crafters, home decor enthusiasts, prototypers and 3D makers, these tools will make your DIY dreams come true: magically make crisp folds with thick, thin and coated materials.
Make Amazing Dimensional Projects
We’ve designed two new Scoring Wheels that let you add dimension to any project. Make everything from cards, gift tags, and name plates with Scoring Wheel to boxes, 3D structures, jewelry and wall decor with Double Scoring Wheel.
- Scoring Wheel makes a deep single-line score perfect for uncoated light materials like crepe paper, light cardstock and even acetate.
- Double Scoring Wheel creates two deep, parallel score lines that are ideal for coated, heavier materials like poster board and cardboard.
With up to 10X the pressure of our best-selling Cricut Explore family of machines, Cricut Maker + Scoring Wheel makes crisp creases in one pass for pro-level precision on every possible crease-and-fold project. You’ll no longer have to worry about whether your score lines are deep enough, and you can say goodbye to cracks when folding coated materials.
Here are some beautiful celebration projects to get you inspired that you will be able to access in Design Space in the coming weeks.

More Tools. More Materials. More Possibilities.
Score more materials such as acetate, glitter cardstock, foil poster board, kraft board, mulberry paper and even heavy cardstock, to give you a few examples. Check out the full list of materials recommended for Scoring Wheel on cricut.com.
When we launched Cricut Maker, our vision was to bring you a new technology that expands the boundaries of what you can make.
From the innovative Rotary Blade, which cuts unbacked fabric, to Knife Blade, which gives you precision cutting on heavier materials like balsa wood and leather, we’ve been working tirelessly to deliver on our promise to give you more Cricut Maker tools.
This is why we’re excited to announce today Cricut Scoring Wheel, a new tool -- in fact two new tools!
