How To Make Your Own Back To School Alphabet With Cricut?

Don’t be put off by layered images in Cricut Design Space as you are able to weld them together to create one solid back to school alphabet image. However if there is an element of that image you don’t want, ungroup first and delete.

  1. Select your image
  2. Ungroup the image and discard of anything you dont need
  3. Select any areas you want to keep or slice
  4. Slice the no 1 out of the back layer

Follow the stages below to resize and group your images to create your Cricut Back To School Alphabet Letters And Numbers until you’re happy with the final look, then right click and press weld to join the project together. 

If you notice any mistakes on your letters then click undo immediately, this is the only way to undo weld in Cricut Design Space. There isn’t an undo button once you have completed another action. 

Watch for the images filling in if they happen to overlap, if this does happen, click undo immediately and re position the elements so they no longer overlap.

Can This Back To School Alphabet Be Used On All Cricut Machines?

Yes, I have cut a selection of letters on the Cricut Joy and Maker with a thin and medium card stock. They would also cut well on vinyl, in fact I feel intricate images generally cut better on vinyl. 

Cutting The School Alphabet

When you send the project to your Cricut to cut ensure you use a brayer to roll the paper, vinyl or card to the matt. 

Also make sure you set your material and cut pressure correctly to match whatever material you’re cutting. 

If you are using a Cricut Joy, and want to use vinyl, use smart vinyl. It’s so easy to load into the machine.

Once the cut has finished, discard the outer area of the paper/ vinyl this pulls away easily. 

Now lift a corner or each letter with tweezers, the letter will then lift away in one piece. Use the weeding tool to remove any areas that need gently weeding and removing.
