How to create print and cut stickers with your Cricut Machine

Create some cute heart stickers using the print and cut setting with your Cricut Maker or Explore Air 2 machine, along with Cricut Design Space! Making stickers with Cricut is a great way to personalise notebooks, planners and more.

There are three different types of Cricut print-on materials to choose from when creating stickers: the standard matt printable sticker paper (as used in our tutorial), clear sticker sheets and printable adhesive vinyl – the choice is yours!

This project uses ‘print and cut’, therefore no matter how complex your SVG design – you can make it, and personalise it! Let us show you how.

This design comes with a personal and commercial license to use up to 250 made items, but please do not re-sell or re-distribute the files. Click the following to download the our FREE ‘lotsa hearts heart’ or ‘leopard print heart’ SVGs! (LINK!!!)

What you’ll need…




  1. Upload the ‘Lotsa hearts heart’ and ‘leopard print heart’ SVG into Design Space. Highlight both and click ‘insert’ to move both in to your canvas area

2. Once your stickers are on your canvas, click ‘shapes’ and then ‘circle.

3. Click on the circle and change the fill to white. This will just make your design more visible later.

3. Resize the circle to 2×2 inches (5.08cm x 5.08). This will be the size of each of your stickers.

4. Duplicate your circle to make two. You can do this by right clicking on the circle and selecting ‘copy’ then ‘paste’ or on a Mac: cmd C (to copy) then cmd V (to paste)

5. These will be your round stickers! Next, resize each heart to fit on the two circular stickers. Position them roughly in the middle of each circle. **Note: if you find that when you reposition your hearts they appear BEHIND the circle and you can’t see them, you need to rearrange your layers. To do this, simply click on the heart layer and DRAG it above the circle in your layers panel like so.

6. There. Don’t worry too much about it being dead in the centre. We’ll show you how to align your SVGs next.

7. Click on the leopard heart layer and the circle layer beneath it (hold shift to select more than one layer at a time). Select ‘align’ in the upper panel and then ‘center’ to move the leopard heart to the very center of the circle sticker. Repeat for the lotsa hearts heart, with the circle underneath it.

8. Finally, click on the two layers of the leopard print sticker (heart and circle) and select ‘flatten’. This will combine the two elements of the image ready to print! You’ll see the black circle around the edge disappear when you do this. Repeat for the lotsa hearts heart sticker.

9. You will be left with something a little like this! 2 layers. 2 stickers.

10. Click on ‘make it’ and you will see the below

11. Next, to make full use of our sticker paper we want to up the number of project copies to fill the page. With stickers this size you can fit 12 to a page. If you have 1 design to print change the ‘project copies’ number to 12. If you have 2 (as we have here) then change it to 6. If you have 3… change it to 4. You get the idea. You’ll see your print preview change!

12. Click on continue and follow the instructions to send your image to your (color) printer. Load your sticker paper in to the printer ready! Then print!

13. Next, transfer your printed sticker paper to your Cricut mat. We are now going to cut those little circles around the stickers that we drew earlier. Load the sheet onto your mat. That black line around the design tells your Cricut exactly where to cut (clever!).

14. Select ‘sticker paper’ as your base material. We are using white sticker paper here, but you can use clear!

15. Make sure you have your fine-point blade loaded and follow the instructions to cut out your stickers

16. Peel back the surrounding paper to reveal your stickers!

17. Use your hands to remove the stickers from your cutting mat. If you turn them around you’ll see that each sticker has a plastic backing. Simply peel this away to reveal the stick!

18. Finally, to ensure that your stickers last and don’t fade, we recommend giving your stickers a spray with some sealer (in a well ventilated room).

19. Get sticking!
