Do you know how to curve text in Cricut Design Space? It’s not hard- just tricky to figure out at first. After doing it once, you’ll never forget how!
UPDATE: Cricut Design Space now offers a “Curve Text” icon, making curving text in Cricut Design Space easier than ever! See how here!
One night, while late night crafting, I had a shirt project that I was working on that needed curved text. I had been inspired by the Touchdown Sweatshirt over on the Cricut Design Space to design my own Touchdown shirt. I was feeling particularly cheap that night, and I didn’t want to spring the 99 cents for the cut file. Instead, I wanted a football with the word “Touchdown” curved around the bottom. I had never tried curved text before, but within minutes I had the letters just like I wanted.
Type the text the way that you want it. In my case, it was the word “TOUCHDOWN.” Go ahead and change the font if you want and then make the word the size that you want it to be.
Select the word, and then click “Ungroup.” This will separate all the letters. Look over to the Layers column. If there are two layers to each letter, delete the hidden one so that you only have one layer per letter.
Arrange each letter where you want it, and use the curve tool to move each letter where you would like it to be.
Once you’re finished, remember to “Attach” the letters back together so that the Cricut Design Space will cut them out together.
