Endless potential with Cricut stencils

Introducing Cricut stencil solutions - Smart Stencil for Cricut Explore 3 and Cricut Maker 3, Smart Stencil for Cricut Joy, and Cricut Flexible Stencil Film


Everywhere we look, we see inspiration. Whether it’s a mural on the side of a building or a bone-inlaid table at our favorite furniture store. And most of the time, that same look can be achieved with a Cricut machine, Cricut Design Space, and a roll of stencil vinyl. With Cricut Stencil, now you too can be an amazing muralist and furniture designer! DIY-not?

There are a few different options of stencil material that Cricut offers, so let’s break them down: Smart Stencil for Cricut Explore 3 and Cricut Maker 3, Smart Stencil for Cricut Joy, and Cricut Flexible Stencil Film.

Smart Stencil for Cricut Explore 3 and Cricut Maker 3

Cut beyond the mat. Just imagine what you can stencil now that you can cut single images up to 12ft. We see many a mural in your future. However, not everything has to be larger than life, Smart Stencil is great for all kinds of surfaces like wood, canvas, or glass. With upcycling thrifted objects trending, how cool would it be to add a painted element to a long, wooden table?

The creative juices are flowing now! Are you ready to stencil all the things?

Smart Stencil for Cricut Joy

Right-sized for Cricut Joy, Smart Stencil also comes in rolls perfect for quick, everyday stencil projects. Cricut Joy Smart Stencil can create clean lines on both curved & flat surfaces.

Cricut Flexible Stencil Film

Cricut Flexible Stencil Film is an improved stencil material with an adhesive backing for easy application. Flexible Stencil Film would be your go-to stencil material if you are cutting on a mat. It is durable, yet removes without residue. Like Smart Stencil, Flexible Stencil Film is great for walls, glass, and canvas. We really love using it to turn blank canvases into custom home décor pieces.

No matter which Cricut machine you have, Cricut has a stencil vinyl just for you. And all of the projects we’ve show you could be made with any Cricut machine.
