Making Layered Images Into A Single Cut File

As you can see below you are able to make multi layered images into single layered cut files by following these steps.

  1. Select your image, ungroup the image discarding any parts you don’t need.
  2. If any elements are connected use a square to slice and separate them.
  3. Start welding the parts you want back together and then size your first overlay to fit just inside your cake image.
  4. You can now slice images or patterns out of your cake one at a time.
  5. Lastly, ensure the cuts have spaces so when you cut you loose a big chunk of pattern. This image did so I welded some dots to break up the design thus I didn’t lose a chunk of pattern

Points To Remember 

Make sure your image is not too detailed if you plan to cut it as a small sticker. 

Also ensure any images are one solid image and will lift off your sticker sheet as one sticker. 

Arranging Your Cricut Joy Birthday Stickers Template

If you are using multi pack smart vinyl the sheets are 5.5? x 12? or a standard roll of smart vinyl is 5.5? x 48?

I arrange my stickers within these perimeters on my design space mat. This way I know how many stickers I need to create to fill my sticker sheet, however they will arrange to mat form when you send to cut.

If you are unsure, press send to cut you will get a mat view to give you an idea.

When you send your stickers to cut check you choose the correct type of vinyl and whether you are cutting on a mat or smart vinyl and also the vinyl type, iron on, permanent and removable.

Choosing smart vinyl or matt for the cricut joy

If you are using smart vinyl check the no mat box, design space automatically sorts into the length of vinyl the project will use, if you are using shorter vinyl you will need to change this so the project cuts over 2 cuts or more.
