Have you ever used a long cutting mat with your craft die-cutting machine? The mat tends to “flop” over the edge with no support and can even cause issues with your materials. Are you tired of not having enough tool storage built into your die-cutting machine? Have you ever lost a tool only to find it months later inside the tool storage area you rarely use? Those days are over. Introducing the Cutter Companion, a tool storage tray that features a slide-out support for long cutting mats.

The Cutter Companion™ is the perfect accessory to your craft die-cutting machine. Completely custom designed by crafter Troy Young, The Cutter Companion™ is not only a great tool storage system, it includes a slide-out support for longer cutting mats to prevent the “flop” of the mat we all struggle with. The Cutter Companion™ is made of durable ABS plastic and the lid is transparent so you can see where all your tools are located. Perhaps the best feature is the smooth glossy finish of the lid makes it perfect for decorating with vinyl!

The Cutter Companion™ is compatible with:

  • Cricut Explore, Explore One, Explore Air, Explore Air 2, and the Cricut Maker
  • Silhouette Cameo 1, Cameo 2, and Cameo 3*

*Note: The Cameo 3 has a small tool drawer that pulls out from the bottom. The Cutter Companion prevents this from being used, but we think most people do not know about the drawer, anyway 😉

The Cutter Companion™ is NOT compatible with the Brother Scan-N-Cut due to the fold-down door on the cutting machine.


  • Inside Dimensions of Tool Storage Tray: Approximately 21” Wide x 5.5” Deep x 0.75” Tall
  • Total Footprint Dimensions: 21” Wide x 16.5” Deep
  • Weight: 2.67 lbs.

Note: The slide-out mechanism can sometimes be a bit tight until it is used and will loosen over time. Do not force the mechanism in when collapsing it. Open the tray and using a hand on each corner, gently slide the mechanism in evenly from both sides while pushing down. Over time the slide-out mechanism will loosen up and become easier to slide.
