Although the Cricut Maker 3 can be used for many projects without cutting mats, Cricut sells a variety of mats for use with vinyl, fabric, paper, and other materials to assist with projects. Note that the Cricut Maker 3 doesn't include any cutting mats and you'll want to purchase the appropriate cutting mat to meet your needs.
