How to make:


To start, open up a new project in Cricut Design Space and add a selection of Halloween images to the canvas.

Add some shapes such as circles to the canvas to make the sticker shape or use the offset tool on each image to make your sticker later. Then change the Halloween design to draw and attach it to the shape.

You can also duplicate the Halloween images, then change one to draw, before attaching it on top of the cut image. Use the contour tool to remove the outline on the drawn shape and the detail from the cut shape, this will create a sticker cut in the shape of the image with the detail drawn on top.

Once the design is complete head to make it, select Smart Paper Sticker Cardstock as your material.

 Make It

Next load a sheet of smart paper sticker cardstock face up into the machine. Then insert your pen into the clamp and start drawing.
