Make vinyl stickers and decals by following these easy steps.


Some of the first projects every new Cricut owner should learn to make are vinyl stickers or decals. Luckily, learning how to make vinyl stickers with Cricut is very easy.

We used this project in Cricut Design Space as our template and followed it step-by-step.

To get started with this project, open the notebook project in Design Space. Click “customize” on the bottom of the screen to add custom text and resize the sticker design to fit your notebook.

Step 1

Click on the text box that says “name.” Another box should open. Click into that field and type your name. Center the text back on the polka dot design. If your notebook or journal isn’t 5” x 7” use the resize arrow on the bottom right of the images to adjust!

Step 2

Once your design is ready to cut, select everything and click “attach,” this will indicate to the machine that you want everything to cut exactly as it looks on the canvas.

Step 3

Click “Make it” in the upper right corner and follow the prompts on the software and machine through the cutting process.

Once done cutting, the machine will indicate that it’s time to unload the vinyl and weed the design. Weeding is simply a term used to describe removing excess vinyl from around the sticker’s design.
