How do I use the scoring tip and housing with my Cricut machine?

The Cricut Scoring Tip with Housing can be used to create score lines rather than cutting. Find instructions below.

 

This Cricut Scoring Tip with Housing is not compatible with Explore or Maker machines. The Explore and Maker machines use the Cricut Tools Scoring Stylus.

 

Cricut Personal, Create, Expression:

  1. Insert any cartridge that uses score lines (Ex: Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2).
  2. Select the desired scoring lines.
  3. Replace the cutting blade and housing with the scoring tip and housing.
  4. Adjust the machine pressure, speed, and blade depth according to the material being used.
  5. Load Mat and press CUT!
  6. Once scoring is finished, DO NOT unload mat. Press LOAD MAT to return the machine to the starting position.
  7. Carefully remove the scoring tip and insert the cutting blade assembly.

     

    Moving the carriage will cause the score and cut lines to misalign.
