Good morning! People often ask me what my favourite DIY tool is. I think they expect me to say a tool (in which case I would say scroll saw!), but I usually tell them that it’s my Cricut! Not only is there a huge database of Cricut images to use for DIY Crafts and home decor projects, you can also upload your own Cricut images for your DIY projects too.
If you own a Cricut and you haven’t used this feature yet, you’e going to thank you very soon! You can draw your own images and scan them to your computer, or download pictures that you want to use for your own DIY signs, pillows, artwork – you name it!
If you have a PDF image, you must save it as an image before you upload it.
Once you open the Cricut Design Space, chose upload image.
Then you can choose an image from your computer to upload.
My image was pretty simple, so I selected the simple option.
Then you just click on the white areas around your image so that they are eliminated from the image.
I saved mine as a cut image, but you can also print the image and then cut around it.
Now that image will be saved in your images, so you can use it in your projects!
SO simple! See why I LOVE my Cricut Explore?! I’ve used this feature to make perfect vinyl stencils for wood signs, like the one below.
