I am absolutely obsessed with my Cricut, and most recently I have been using the mess out of it to cut heat transfer vinyl for reverse canvas signs. I jumped on the reverse canvas sign bandwagon as soon as I saw my first one. Cricut design space can be confusing, especially if you are not familiar with it. I recorded this tutorial, in an effort to walk y’all through the process of getting my design into Cricut design space, and then sending my design to the machine to cut it. Be nice, as this is my very first tutorial video, and I’m obviously not quite comfortable in front of the camera, YET!! Give me time and y’all won’t be able to get rid of me.
A couple of things you need before you start.
- Your Computer
- A Wifi Connection
- Your Cricut
- Heat Transfer Vinyl. I recommend Siser Easy Weed HTV
- Cutting Mat
- X-acto Knife, or some type of precision tool that can help you remove the vinyl from your mat
- The canvas you want to use for your sign, (for measuring purposes)
- A Glass of Wine or a Shot of Whiskey for those moments you get frustrated with your computer. (I’m sort of kidding)
Settle in and watch the tutorial below. Pause and start as much as you want, take screen shots and draw funny things on my face, meme me, or whatever. I’m good with any of it, as long as you send us your beautiful work so we can laugh too!
Happy Cricut Design Space-ing!!!!
