Circle Monogram Font
Open up the Cricut design space and click “insert images”. Type MICKEY into the search box. You’ll find the bow and the Mickey head in there.
Insert them into your document.
Click on the LAYERS pallette on the side.
Click the eyeball next to the red Mickey head top. This will hide the image so that you ONLY cut the black silhouette.
Do the same with the minnie bow. You only want to cut 1 piece.
Change the Mickey head to the size you want. Drag the bow over to the top of the Mickey head and resize it. It will cut in two separate pieces but this step will help you to get both pieces the right size.
For the next part you’ll need a Circle Monogram Font. I bought mine (at Howard’s Fonts) and use it all the time so I didn’t mind. If you want a free option there is a font called Monogram KK . It’s a “swirly” monogram font but would also be cute.
Type your first letter, then from the EDIT panel pick the font that you want.
If you are using the Circle Monogram font you’ll notice that the center letter is too skinny.
In the EDIT panel, click on the lock to unlock the “proportions” then click the up arrow on the width until it’s a size that you like.
Insert the rest of the letters. You’ll need to use the “key” for the font to figure out what to click to get the right, left and center letters.
After you’ve got it the way that you like it, go to the layers panel and change the color of all of the letters to black. Keep in mind that the Cricut sees each color on the project as a different color of vinyl and will prompt you to change the mat each time there is a color change. You want the letters and the mickey head to cut all at the same time, so make them black.
Next, click on each letter and the Mickey head in the layers pallet. Hold down the shift key so that you select all of them, then click ATTACH.
The file will look like this, don’t attach the bow.
Send the file to the Cricut. You will follow the prompts and make one cut from the black vinyl and one from the pink.
Cut out around the design, and peel way the excess vinyl to reveal the decal.
Cut a piece of transfer tape to the same size as the decal.
Apply the transfer tape so that the sticky side of the tape is on the right side of the decal. Then peel the decal away from the backing using the transfer tape.
Place image on the cup in the desired location. Use an old credit card to smooth out the design and adhere it to the cup.
Peel off the transfer tape. Repeat with the bow decal.
If you don’t have a Cricut you can pick one up on Amazon or from Cricut. I LOVE mine and use it for so many things from crafts to home decor to sewing projects!!
