How to Make Stickers Using The Cricut Machine
For this project, you will need printable sicker paper for your machine. Cricut has it online and it is often discounted.
The first thing you’ll want to do is create your stickers. You can do this by using programs such as Microsoft 3D Paint or Procreate, which is a drawing app available on Apple products.
Once your stickers are created in the program of your choice, you’ll want to outline your images in a light grey color (make sure to leave plenty of white space around your images) so the Cricut machine will know where to cut.
I would strongly recommend using the light grey color because this color will not show when your stickers are cut. Once your image is ready, save your file as a JPEG for easy uploading into Cricut Design Space.
Next, you’ll want to log into Cricut Design Space and select “Create a New Project.” You’ll want to go to the bottom left of your screen and select “Upload.”
Upload your greyscale image and select “complex” so you will have all of your features and colors from your stickers. This is especially important if your stickers are very detailed. Then select “continue.”
Since you don’t want to print out any of your grey colors from your stickers, you want to click on the wand in the top-right hand corner of your screen.
Then click on any grey area of your image and watch the grey be replaced with a checkered pattern. This tells Cricut Design Space to only print your stickers and ignore everything else on the page. Select “continue” to make your stickers.
After you select “continue” you’ll be presented with two options of what you want Cricut Design Space to do with your sticker image. You’ll want to select the option on the left, which is “Save as a print then cut image.”
Don’t forget to name your image what you’d like your file to be known as (this is on the right-hand side of the screen). Then select “save.” Select your image once your file has been uploaded and select “Import Image” so your stickers are inserted into Design Space.
Once your stickers are imported into Cricut Design Space you can easily rotate your image, make your stickers larger or smaller, depending on the size you’d like to print from your printer. If you need to duplicate or rotate your image, you can do so now.
Once your stickers are the size you want, go ahead and select the “Make It” button in the top right-hand corner of your screen.
After you select “Make It” double check to make sure your image is the size and quantity you’d like to print and cut. If so, select “Continue” in the bottom-right of your screen. You’ll then want to print images on the printer of your choice.
Please remember to insert your sticker printer paper into your machine before selecting the print option. This will save you a headache and you won’t find yourself rushing to your printer or wasting ink.
From the print option, you’ll want to select the printer of your choice, leave copies at 1 (if making one page), and turn off the “Bleed.”
Once your stickers are printed out, make sure your Cricut machine is on and connected.
Next, select the “Paper” option under materials and “Continue.” After you place your sticker paper onto your Cricut mat and insert this into the machine, your fine-point tip cutter will do the rest of the work. (Remember to match your sticker paper and lay your paper down on your Cricut mat as the image is showing in your Design Space.)
Then, enjoy your new stickers!
