Scoring wheel for the Cricut Maker

Seeing Double? Meet Scoring Wheel and Double Scoring Wheel for Cricut Maker

June 18th, 2018 • Contributor: Cricut Team

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.

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!

  1. Yea cricut, this is a much needed to for my crafting. Thanks so much for a great machine. I love my maker.

  2. When are all these blades/scoring tools going to be available in the uk, I bought my make a while ago on the strength of what it could do, I am so disappointed with Cricut, all those promises not kept.

  3. Is there any possibility that you would sell the small plastic spatulas either separately or in a multi-pack? They are currently packaged with other tools that I don’t use as much and I seem to have a knack for losing them.
    Thank you for your consideration!

  4. When are theses item going to be available in the UK I am still waiting for the knife blade I think we in the UK are not treated very well you are willing to sell this machine in the UK but the additional item you bring out we do not get

  5. I’m old and can’t read this light set of your post. Please use a darker writing font then this. I’m sure I’m not the only one that can’t read your post.

  6. I just want to say how excited I am that I’m doing things with my Cricut and everyday I get more excited. Have the Air 2, (I should have waited a month or so and got the Cricut Maker- not because I don’t like my Explorer Air 2–I happen to love it- The Maker does a few more things and the tools are getting more and more exciting.) I was a total beginner and watched, you tube, videos -Melody Lane, Lorrie, etc. Your site was so helpful also. I signed up on face book to a few Cricut sites, and learned from others and really got my heart racing. I just wanted to Thank Your Company for having one of the very best Customer Service departments. I’ve called a few times, nothing real major, (housing unit not engaging and a few other minor things. I felt like I was talking to family. Always with a smile, Always. (you can feel a smile over the phone). I read every once in a few about unhappy customers because they can’t get something to work, or don’t understand. Today we deal with a lot of Tech items, and yes the internet goes down, or something just doesn’t click. Happens to me also. I believe it’s not always the Cricut’ s fault and it just takes some time to get to the bottom of the issue, or just call customer service and have helpful and understanding people help us out. I guess life is tough all over, but this lady, me, Barbara Heist just wants you and the company to know I appreciate everything thing you do to help me, or just figure out something that my brain can’t see because of a “brain cell skipping. lol ) Thank you so much. Maybe someday I will afford the Cricut Maker and give you guys another letter letting you know how awesome you are. Thank you so much, Sincerely Barbara Heist

  7. It’s getting pretty costly to add all of the future tools. Hoping prices will be more affordable? Of course, owning The Maker we want all of the options in the future. Love the quality and all that it can do.

  8. These look like a fantastic addition to the range and I can’t wait to try them out. When will they (and the knife blade) be available in the UK?

  9. I have to say as a uk Maker user I feel a little neglected as I am still waiting for my knife blade and now you have rolled out a new blade! Why does it take so long to come over here?
    So very pleased with the maker, just wish we got everything at the same time.

  10. The Explore Air 2 also needs a better scoring tool. Is there one in the works for the owners of the Explore Airs?

    • I know the feeling I stayed up to watch the launch on HSN just to find out this won’t work on my air 2 .. hope they get this out for us too

  14. News for all these new tools are great, but please, take into consideration that there are people using Cricut machines (personally have Explore Air 2 & Maker) also in other countries than the US/Canada & UK. I live in the EU so I am unable to make any purchases on the Cricut website & only recently found a seller that would ship the knife blade to me. So if the same pattern continues, I’ll be able to get my hands onto the scoring wheel tool in January 2019. On another note, it would be great if the settings for the Design Space (inches vs cm) wouldn’t reset every time it starts.

  16. I am so excited about the scoring wheels. I absolutely LOVE my Maker. Even my Grandchildren (10 & 8) love using it for t-shirts and signs. I know they are going to be excited about this new tools as well. Our 10 year old Grandchild wants one for Christmas (Cricut Maker)…:-)
