  • Cricut Joy

  • Cricut Standard grip mat


  1. Open Cricut Design Space.
  2. Click on the “+” sign to start a new project, opening up a blank canvas.
  3. Click on the “Upload” button from the toolbar and browse your downloaded files to insert the SVG file.
  4. The cut image will appear on the canvas.
  5. With the image selected, click on the “Weld” button to secure all parts of the image together for cutting.
  6. Maintain the size (2.75” high) or adjust to fit your mug. To adjust the size, highlight the image, and click on the size box in the top toolbar.
  7. Change the measurement to suit your mug size accordingly.
  8. Change the image color if desired to match with the material color.
  9. Select “Make It” in the upper right corner to proceed with cutting.
  10. If using Cricut Joy Smart Vinyl, choose “no mat” for cutting.
  11. Note the size of the Smart Vinyl needed and cut the length of the vinyl accordingly. In this case, cut the vinyl to 4.25” long.
  12. Choose the Smart Vinyl, Permanent from the list of options in the drop-down menu.
  13. Following the instructions prompted on the screen, cut out the vinyl.
  14. Cut around the image with a pair of scissors.
  15. Using the weeding tool, peel away the excess vinyl around the cut images and discard.
  16. Cut a piece of transfer tape a bit larger than the size of the image.
  17. Peel away the transfer tape backing and place the transfer tape over top of the cut image.
  18. Gently rub the vinyl to help it stick to the transfer tape.
  19. Peel away the vinyl backing, leaving just the image adhered to the transfer tape.
  20. Carefully consider the placement before applying as the permanent vinyl can’t be removed if placed incorrectly. Position the image with the transfer tape on to the smooth side of the mug and press in place.
  21. Press the image down with your fingers or with the Cricut scraping tool to help it to stick to the mug.
  22. Slowly remove the transfer tape leaving the vinyl image on the mug.
