How to Make a Monogram in Cricut Design Space

Time needed: 5 minutes.

  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. Select your font.

    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. Add the MIDDLE initial.

    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. Add the LAST name Initial.

    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. Center the Three Initials

    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. Weld or Attach Your Initials

    For Interlocking Monograms (pictured above) where your paths are overlapping, you want the monogram to cut as one piece versus 3 pieces. To accomplish this, we will select all three initials and choose the WELD tool at the bottom of the Layers Panel.

    For Non-Interlocking Monograms (ex. circle monograms) where your paths are not overlapping, you want the monogram to cut as it appears on your Canvas screen. To accomplish this, we will select all three initials and choose the ATTACH tool at the bottom of the Layer’s Panel. Cricut Design Space screenshot of using the Weld Tool

  9. Make It! Cut Your Design.

    Click the Make It button in the top right and follow the instructions in Design Space to 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!
