I had recently developed an interest in sticker making but didn’t have the space for a full-sized Cricut machine, so I was stoked when I found out about the Cricut Joy! It comes with a little welcome packet including some sample vinyl and instructions; a standard grip mat; and the cord to plug it in. I was a bit surprised when I opened the box and it didn’t include essential tools, such as tweezers, scissors, etc. Luckily, I was able to find a Cricut essential basic tool set for $20, but it’s honestly a disappointment that it’s not included. Setting it up on both my iPad and iMac was a cakewalk, and I was able to print my first decal (a bear) within ten minutes of pulling my Joy out of its box. The cut itself was precise and only took ~30 seconds to cut, which was a lot faster than I anticipated. I definitely see myself branching out and purchasing a full-sized Cricut when I have the space someday, but I could not be any happier with my Cricut Joy.
