So let’s start off with a few clarifications.

We shop at the Dollar Tree but there are tons of dollar stores of all different names so any of those will work!

You know which one’s are in your area and they can be all kinds of different names!

We also shop the clearance sections at most stores (Target being our favorite!)

And we shop online.

Don’t forget that you can sometimes find great products at thrift stores as well!

The opportunity’s are endless when you really spend some time looking.

The Dollar Tree website is a great resource since it sometimes has items that you might not find at your local store and it’s a great place to shop if you’re buying bulk items. Last time I checked you could ship to your local store for free and to your home was a small charge.

Here are our favorite dollar store products to use with a Silhouette that you should look for!


You can find coffee mugs, wine glasses, drinking glasses and vases among the many items available at the dollar store. This is a great place to pick up a four pack of wine glasses to embellish for a new homeowner or a party!

You can usually find mason jar drinking glasses along with some cute cake stands and vases. All of these are great if you’re hosting a party!

Don’t forget to look for water jugs and tumblers because there’s always a great selection of these in- store and online.

There are also wine glasses and storage containers. I mean really there’s no end to the amount of glassware that you can find to use with your silhouette.

Picture Frames

Picture Frames can be embellished with a photo or piece or artwork, or you can use the frame itself to create art with your cutting machine.

Tote Bags

I love to treat my tote bags just like my t-shirts when it comes to choosing designs.

It’s so easy to keep a tote bag packed and ready to go for each activity so you’ve got all your gear together when you’re heading out the door.

Tote bags also make it easy to stay organized in a small space.

They make great gifts. They even make a great addition to a gift – say you’re gifting a book put it in a tote bag that has a fun “book lover” type image on it and you’ve made special wrapping paper.

You might find it’s even less expensive than wrapping paper in some instances!

Plastic Tubs

Plastic tubs are great for storage! You can use them inside and outside, in the garage, the laundry room, the kids rooms.

They’re also great for parties. Tubs for holding supplies, drinks, bags of chips, pool towels…

Need we say more?


Trays are such a great decorative accessory for your home.

They’re also a great way to keep things organized.

You can also pick up some cute soap and lotion dispensers and add them to a tray!

Favor Boxes

These are so cute to use for party favors or small gift boxes.

It’s always classy to add a monogram and a little bit of ribbon to these.

Felt Pennants

These are fun to use for a party or holiday. You can also use them for creating custom signs for a nursery or a dorm room.


Think of all the great shapes or letters you can cut out!


I don’t usually find hats online but I can usually find them in the store so be on the lookout. Anything from caps to bucket hats are a fun item to embellish.

You can find hats, tote bags and travel mugs at dollar stores to use for your cricut projects.
