Cricut First Steps: Welding In Design Space
The weld function can be very useful. It’s located in the “actions” panel.
You can use “weld” to connect cursive fonts. Select your font and add your text.
1
Decrease your spacing so your text is connected.
2
Now select the text and choose “Weld.” Perfect!
3
Check out this video for a little more detail on connecting text.
Use weld to combine 2 or more shapes into one. First add your shapes to the canvas.
4
Arrange your shapes. Pay attention to the outline.
5
Now select all shapes and “weld.” Look at that!
6
Use weld to fill in an image. Add a shape to cover over what you want to fill. Select all and weld.
7
Finally, weld can help you create a backing for an image. Duplicate your image.
8
Change the color of each image to make it easier for you to see what you’re doing.
9
On the back image, use shapes to cover spaces you want to fill. Select that image and shapes. Weld.
10
Now you’ve got the front and the back. This is handy when making cupcake toppers and stick puppets.
