How to Crop An Image In Cricut Design Space

I wanted to share this quick tutorial today for anyone who is using my print and cut (or just regular cut files) on their Cricut software but only wants to use part of the image. Sometimes you will get a file containing multiple images or motifs and you want to only use certain parts of the file.

For example. I have this “Summer” banner printable available, but I also have a version with the full alphabet.

IF you were making a custom banner, you wouldn't want to print and cut ALL the letters, only the ones you want to use, so you need to crop them out of the original print and cut file.
It is easier than you think!

First you need to open the file in design space (you can follow THIS post if you need help walking through how to get your SVG print and cut files into design space).

Now you need to figure out which letters you want.. In this case I’m going to spell the word:  “Yum” for my banner.

The first thing I need to do it select a shape that will cover the popsicle.. In this case I’m going to use a square.Screen Shot 2018 07 27 at 10 36 33 AM
I need to unlock the square (so it can be a rectangle) and I put it over the Y popsicle in my file:

Now I need to select BOTH the square AND the popsicle graphic. When you do this, the slice tool will appear (in the lower right hand corner).Screen Shot 2018 07 27 at 10 39 20 AM
If you click “Slice” you will see that BOTH laters will be sliced.  The square AND the popsicle.Screen Shot 2018 07 27 at 10 40 27 AM

You can pull them apart and delete the black square pieces:

Now repeat this process for the rest of the letters in your word:

Now this file is ready to be cut just like any other!  Easy right?

If you want to play around with this, you can grab the popsicle file here:
