Vinyl Up Your Life

How to uses vinyl with your Cricut.  You can use vinyl to decorate your surroundings.  Put a saying on the wall, have words on the outside door greeting guest, whatever it is, celebrate your creativity.   


  1. Practice cutting out your shape or words with your Cricut on scrap paper before using the self-adhesive vinyl. This will cut down on the amount of vinyl that is wasted cutting on vinyl pieces that are the incorrect size.
  2. Use scissors to cut the self-adhesive vinyl to fit onto your Cricut cutting mat. Depending on your Cricut machine, this will either be 6 by 12 inches or 12 by 12 inches. In order to skip this step, you can purchase precut vinyl sheets that are the exact size of your Cricut mat.
  3. Select the size of your image with your size dial on the Cricut. The practicing you have done previously will help you to decide the best size for your image.
  4. Set both the speed dial and the pressure dial on your Cricut both to 3. This will help to avoid tearing of the vinyl and will only cut through the vinyl, leaving the adhesive backing on your design once it is cut.
  5. Enter the image you have selected to cut out on your Cricut and press the "cut" button.
  6. Peel away the excess vinyl from around your image. Gently rock the the excess vinyl back and forth to slowly pull away the unneeded material.
  7. Peel away the image and stick on walls, furniture, picture frames, or even cars.
