These are the same questions I had about my Cricut Explore when I got one for Christmas in 2018. If you don’t have a Cricut, first of all, you should get one! You will not believe all the things you can create with it!

I have used it to create my own stickers and embellishments for scrapbooking and iron-on vinyl projects with the Cricut EasyPress 2.

I have a large collection of pens and I wanted to use on my Cricut Explore machine, but they wouldn’t fit in the pen adaptor that came with the Cricut!? I didn’t want to be limited to only using the Cricut pens! A crafty gal like me doesn’t want their creativity stifled by the very tools I use to be creative with, so what did I do! Knowing me, that wasn’t going to work for my nerdy craftiness!

So I started checking out YouTube and Google to find a way around this problem. I found that other people were talking about the same problem I was having. They were able to find other pen adaptors to use in their Cricut machines. Ahhh!! Where can I find these other pen adaptors for my Cricut Explore!
