Pros:cuts out state shapes, capitals, bird, flag, and flower with 0 trouble
Cons:not the 'must have' cartridge if you don't have kids or teach.
The Bottom Line: Really good if you have projects involving states.
As any of you out there with kids know, every once in a while kiddo comes home with a project to do. It's not really easy for a 4 year old to do a project either. So, when getting cartridges for my Cricut machine, I decided to get the 50 States Cartridge for those times when projects come up. I knew one of my kiddos would have a state project at some point and time, but this cartridge has more than the states on it.

The Cricut machine allows you to cut images in sizes ranging from 1" up to 5 ½ inches tall. There are font cartridges and shape cartridges out there separately, and then there are a few specialty ones as well. With shape cartridges, you get a few sayings as well then font cartridges will not only have the alphabet but sayings too.
With the 50 States Cartridge, you can cut out the state's shape, the state's shape with a small star on it locating the capital, the name of the state, the state capital's name, the state flag, state bird, and state flower. My guess is not too many of you out there can do that by hand- I know I can't.
There are two other features on this cartridge called a shadow feature. You can do this with the state flower and the state itself as well as the state's name. What the shadow feature does is make a nice plump cutout where you can make one color as a background, then turn off the shadow feature and make a regular sized cutout in another color and place it on top of that.
If you taught school, this cartridge would be invaluable to you! You could make your own maps and state info posters, and if your kid had a project about a state you could use this and be done with your project in probably a half hour.
But not only is this good for state projects- but the bird and flower cutouts are really useful when making cards- there are 50 flowers and birds on there! You have an endless possibility with that many options.
True, this is not the ‘must have' cartridge, but if you have kids or teach, I think it's a good deal when doing projects. I would recommend it.
