Start By Deciding On A Template For Your Cricut Stickers

It’s a good idea to set a template pattern to start with, for the stickers I am making today I have chosen 3 simple shapes. This way you can plan what stickers to want to make, or at least have an idea of how many stickers and what size they will be, you need to be aiming for an overall size of 6.75. x 9.25 or less to use the print and cut feature.

If you make the pattern yourself position your layout and then right click and select attach in the bottom right hand corner of Cricut Design space. This will connect your layout together, now duplicate and put one copy to one side and un attach the other.

You now have one template to work on, and one as a spare. You can right click and download my template to upload and use, however won’t be able to edit it, although it will make a great guide. Heres who to add them to Design Space.

How To Design Stickers In Cricut Design Space

Choose An Image

To design your stickers start by selecting some images in design space, I typed in rainbows, happy, spring and positive and selected my images. You can choose any images, even cut and layered images.

Choose images you want to feature in you stickers

Once I had all of my images I proceeded to build my stickers one by one. Starting with your first template, drag the 1st template square over from the template set and choose your first image.

Choose Your Background Pattern

Once you have decided on your image choose you background. On the top bar click on fill, choose pattern and choose a patten for the background.

choose a backgorund for your sticker

Flatten Your Image To Create A Printable Sticker

Now hover your image over the top of your background and size it to fit on your background before selecting all and clicking flatten in the bottom right corner. This will flatten the whole image into a flat printable image.

Now layer your image over the top select all and click flatten in the bottom righ hand corner

Organise Your Sticker Layout

When the images are flattened they look visibly different, the colours are more blended and softer. You can now re-arrange your stickers, right click and attach your stickers together.

Attaching ensures your stickers stay together and organised when you send to print and cut.

How To Print Cricut Stickers

Once you are happy with you stickers, click on the corner and drag the attached images until they are the correct size to print and cut. They need to be 6.75. x 9.25 or less to use the print and cut feature. This is why I work to a template, I feel I can organise my stickers and there is less wastage as I can fill as much of my sticker sheet as possible.

Now click make it, this will take you to the print preview page, ensure you feed your sticker paper is the correct way into the printer and press print, when you unload your printer avoid touching the black guide line around the edge of the printed stickers as I find this smudges easily.

If your sticker quality is not great, select use system dialog and select fine quality.

send you sheet to print

Once printed, gently put the sticker sheet on your cutting mat, I don’t roll it with a brayer as I usually would, simply gently press around the edge. But always ensure I use a sticky mat.
