For today’s very quick video tutorial for Cricut beginners, I’m going to show you how to slice a monogram out of a SVG design in Cricut Design Space. Ready to practice? Check out all our free monogram designs for your personal use or to sell if you get a commercial use license.
Why is this trick helpful? Well, layering vinyl can be messy and make projects much more difficult than they need to be for beginners. So, to save yourself the frustration, this is a great way to cut your monogram into the design itself so that you can cut everything out in one piece.
Also, I forgot to mention this in the video, but even if you are planning to layer the vinyl, you should use this trick to slice out the monogram from the design before placing it on the design so that the vinyl monogram sticks to the actual mug or shirt and is not layered on top of the design vinyl (which can make it not stick properly).
