Default cricut

which one do you have? can you use it to cut ribbon? I saw a super idea that I am sure requires the use of a cricut.
What can I expect to pay for a used cricut? I looked on ebay and was shocked that the prices ranged from $250 to $125. That seems like such a wide range. Since I don't really know much about them, I would have no idea what to expect to pay.

I never tried to use mine to cut ribbon but I have one I need to get rid of because I got the expression. I have a cricut and a ton of cartridges for $200 shipped

Don't think the cricut will cut ribbon

There are 5 different Cricut machines out there

Baby Bug
Bug
Expression
Imagine
Expression 2

I have the expression and love it. I paid $200 for mine new and I get cartridges off ebay, watch the deals and when the auctions end, I never pay more than $20 for them.

I have not used it to cut ribbon, it would have to be a semi thick stiff ribbon I think for it to cut

I have a brand new cricut expression machine that I haven't used (bought it last year on black friday). I want to sell it for $165 and then I have tools, cartridges, crayons, and probably more all new. Pm me if interested.

I cut fabric with my expression but never tried ribbon.
I get my cartridges from cricutmachine.com. They have incredible deals! The 12x12 mats go one sale for 2 for $5. That's cheap.
Sign up for their emails and they always notify you of specials.

I have one that I love, but I haven't cut ribbon. I would assume you could if you stiffened it like you would stiffen fabric... but that is a guess...

It is the original cricut and a bunch of cartridges. I did get it to cut fabric so I bet it would cut ribbon.
