…. make sure you order the right one!!!

There is apparently a Canadian and a US version available and the difference appears to be in the cartridges.. licensing and all that fun stuff I guess.  From what I can tell  .. all you gals and guys that love foil and glam are gonna love this  new mystery box..LOOK AT THAT ARV  $154.89

Both versions appear to come with 9 rolls of adhesive foil and 2 cartridges… the US one supposedly has one cartridge that is not available in Cricut Access… and Canada get two unavailable  in access cartridges.   Although this may vary ??

“The December Mystery box is full of festive supplies and captivating cartridges.”

I know we have a lot of new Cricut owners after the fab Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sales who you may not know about the Mystery Boxes yet.  Congratulations on your new machines  .. now be prepared to grab some goodies to go with it.  Every month Cricut release a Mystery Box..and  it is exactly  that…. a mystery.  Well it is till yours arrives, or someone tells you what came in theirs lol.  Trust me ..someone will LOL  … but  then the problem you have is  making sure you grab yours before it’s gone.  These boxes are very popular and the  deep discount ones can fly out the door before you can say YES PLEASE.

They will vary from month to month in both value and contents.  The great thing about being a new Cricut owner is that you are highly unlikely to be getting duplicates you can’t use….  so if you want to build up your cartridge collection, this is a great way to get started.

Even if you get a duplicate… there are groups dedicated to mystery box swaps so  you can alwys find someone who has something you want from a previous  box.
