How to Design and Cut Out Geometric Shapes using Cricut Design Space
What if you just need to cut out a simple shape? While you could easily measure, draw and cut out a square or rectangle by hand, it would be more difficult to cut out a perfect circle, a heart, or a star. You can easily draw and out simple shapes right in Cricut Design Space.
In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to design a rectangle from the standard shapes. All you need to get started is your Design Space account, a Cricut machine, and some cardstock to test your design.
Using the Basic Shapes to Design, Size, and Cut a Rectangle
- On the Design Space home page, click the horizontal lines in the upper left of the screen next to Home.
2. From the drop-down menu, select Canvas
- On the left side of the Canvas, click the Shapes icon.
4. From the Shapes menu, select the Square.
For this tutorial, we’ll be cutting out a liner for a 5 x 7 inch greeting card. We’ll need a 4.5 by 6.5 inch rectangle. Login to your Cricut Design Space, then follow the steps below.
