So you have a shiny new Cricut Machine and know that it can do a bunch of stuff but you’re a bit afraid of it. Am I right?

First of all, congratulations on a great choice! And second of all, Cricut machines are pretty easy to master but there is a learning curve for sure. I want you to skip straight to the exciting things your machine can do by giving you the benefit of my experience.

Today I’m going to walk you through making SUPER CUTE Valentine’s stickers. They’re great to put on your mail, bullet journals, lunch box notes, planners and more!

I used the Food Couples download from Design Bundles Plus Membership. They also have a commercial license so go ahead and add them to things you make to sell.

Here’s how to make your own stickers

Step 1

Download your design and unzip the files. Once the folder is unzipped you’ll need the PNG files.

Step 2

Upload images to Cricut Design Space

Upload image>Browse>Open File>Complex>Continue

Opens new page>accept and continue>Print then cut image

Step 3

This is what you should see on your recent uploads screen.

On the Canvas screen, select the square from the basic shapes. On the top bar, you’ll see size boxes. Unlock the padlock by clicking on it and change the size to 8.75x 9.25″. This will serve as your sticker template but you won’t actually cut it out.

Now to add your stickers!

Click the upload button and add your first sticker. Resize it then once you’re happy with the size, hit duplicate (top right corner) and add as many as you want if that sticker. Be sure to keep within the template size.

Repeat for the other sticker images. Remember, can make them any size you want, just don’t go too tiny.

When you are happy with your sticker sheet, go to the layers panel on the right-hand side and click the eye on the rectangle layer to get rid of it.

Your screen will look like this. It’s important to select all the stickers and hit flatten (bottom right) this tells your Cricut Machine that you are making a Print then Cut project.

Step 4

Let’s print!

Hit the Make It button and switch your Cricut Machine on.

Send to Printer and choose the correct paper setting. Toggle the dialogue button and you’ll be able to change your settings before printing. I also choose to keep the bleed on. The bleed is basically a very slight border added to your sticker which helps keep the cut more accurate.

My sticker paper is unbranded Glossy sticker paper from Amazon so I choose Glossy paper (other). Ensure that the printer is set to ‘Best’ quality.

With the sticker sheet printed now choose the correct setting for your Cricut Machine.

Under Set Base Material select ‘Browse all materials’ and navigate to ‘paper’. You will see options for printable sticker paper.

IMPORTANT be sure to add your sticker sheet to the Cricut Cutting mat exactly as shown on the preview page. (see pic above)

When the mat is loaded, the Cricut machine will detect the black lines before cutting so you will notice the machine making a few odd noises 🙂

If you choose glossy paper as I did please remember that it may take a few minutes for the ink to dry.

Step 5

Enjoy your awesome stickers!
