What Is A Split Monogram?

A split monogram is a letter that has been split in two and personalised. How you personalise your monogram letter totally up to you, however it could be to create a themed piece if art, add a name for a card or scrapbooking layout or use with Glowforge to create a hanging gift for a tree decoration or keepsake.

Upload Your Themed Letters In Cricut Design Space

To create your Split Monogram font firstly upload a letter or number of your choice to Cricut Design Space. To upload click upload in the bottom left hand corner, you can now choose either the SVG or PNG version of the letter. I also find SVGs are quicker and easier to uploading Cricut Design Space.

Once uploaded choose a square from shapes and drag it larger by clicking on the arrow on the corner, remember you need to cover half of your letter.

Use a square to slice the letter in half

Now ensure you are splitting the letter exactly in half, before slicing the square into the letter. You will be left with two halves and can discard any excess. If you make a mistake click undo in the top left corner and try again.

Create An Edge On Your Split Monogram

Once you have two halves you will also want to create an edge or shelf to hold your words and also create a finish to the split monogram letter. To create this choose a square from the shapes bar, click on the padlock to unlock the square.

Now drag the square into a long oblong shape, you can see in the image below I have sized it to fit my shape perfectly. Once you are happy duplicate the oblong to also use on the bottom and size to fit the bottom of the letter.

Weld The Letters Together To Create A Monogram Letter

You will now need to weld the letters together. I suggest welding both halves separately, this gives you more flexibility when adding letters and words to personalise you’re split monogram. To weld, simply right click and drag over the images and click weld in the bottom right hand corner.

To add your letters and words simply select the text tool in the left hand bar. Type a name or word and choose a font. You will need to size this to fit between both halves of your monogram letters, I find using all capitals works betters for sizing.

  1. This does not have to do with making a split Monogram. I am in love with two animals. Flamingos and Llamas. In fact for Christmas I decorate one tree with both animals and call it my Llamingo tree. So since you have Butterfly Alphabet can you do a Flamingo and a Llama Alphabet, Not the two animals together but two separate Alphabets. I also love Gnomes. I have your Valentine Gnome Alphabet but one of just Gnomes would be awesome.
