How to Make a Monogram in Cricut Design Space

  1. Download your favorite monogram font.  You can find awesome ones on my 30 FREE Monogram Fonts post!
  2. Open Cricut Design Space to a blank canvas.
  3. Type your first name initial using the Text Tool.
  4. With the initial text selected, choose your font (Monogram) from the font drop-down located in the text layer panel.  I like to size this first initial at 1.25 inches.Cricut Design Space Screenshot showing where to change the font and height of the initial
  5. While that initial is selected, click Duplicate in the Layers Panel and change the text to the middle initial letter.Cricut Design Space Screenshot showing how to duplicate our initial text.
  6. Repeat Step 5 for the LAST initial and change the size to 1.75 inches.Cricut Design Space Screenshot of Center Monogram Initial Specifics
  7. For alignment, I like to start by selecting all three initials and aligning the vertical centers of the letters.  From there I can use my mouse or my arrow keys to adjust as needed.Cricut Design Space screenshot of using the Align Tool
  8.   Next, we want our machine to cut this design as one solid piece, not cut each piece separately so we will weld them all together so we get a solid design.  Select all three initials and choose the WELD tool in the bottom of the Layers Panel.Cricut Design Space screenshot of using the Weld Tool
  9.  Make it!  Cut your finished design!  If you think you will use this again, don’t forget you can SAVE it in your projects in Cricut Design Space.

NOTE:  If using Iron-on, don’t forget to MIRROR your design!
