How to Find the Exclusive Cricut Potpourri Basket Cartridge

The Cricut Potpourri Basket cartridge is a mix of popular cuts from other cartridges, and for the most part, is fairly difficult to find. That's because it is exclusively available with the Cricut Expression promoted on the television infomercials.

However, if you already have the Expression or one of the other two die cut machine models -  or even if you plan to buy it, but have a deal scoped out elsewhere - there's good news!  You don't have to buy the infomercial model to get this cartridge.  Here's the scoop...

Cricut Potpourri Basket Cartridge

Recently I talked about the Cricut rewards program.  My advice - keep saving those points if you want this cartridge!  It is not currently available on the rewards program, but I suspect that it's just a matter of time.  Right now, you can pick up George, Don Juan, Accent Essentials, and Plantin Schoolbook for 800 points each.

Also, remember the original Cricut infomercials, featuring the Personal Electronic Cutter?  The Sampler cart that was bundled with that machine is also now available on the rewards site for 800 points.  I am just speculating, but I think there's a good chance the Potpourri cartridge will eventually end up there also.

Provo Craft is working on making some improvements to the rewards program, offering more items to select from using a wider variety of points.  I also heard that they are bringing down their shipping and handling costs too, so it's definitely worth keeping an eye on.

Of course, there are also places that you can purchase this cartridge secondhand.  Keep an eye on Craigslist, as well as your favorite scrapbooking message boards, and as always, my favorite place, eBay.  To help get you started on your search, click here to see the most current Cricut Potpourri Basket cartridge listings.  Also, if you have found it somewhere else that I have not mentioned yet, make sure you leave a quick comment below...


  1. I’ve been saving my Cricut reward points in the hopes that I’ll be able to someday order this cartridge. I’ve written emails to the company twice with no reply about
    ordering this cartridge (potpourri basket). I hope they release it soon to the rewards program…..

  2. I heard that will be soon carrying Potpourri Basket before Jan 1 2010. I don’t see it yet, but that is what I heard.
