Learn how to easily make a Cricut monogram and a shadow layer too.
Hi Friends! I have been working on a lot of glitter tumblers lately and there are so many ways to decorate them. I have a few more tutorials coming your way on how to add pictures and glitter images, but before we get to those I thought I’d share with you how I do a Cricut monogram.
I also have a video tutorial for you on how to create a monogram shadow so it stands out more. You can use this technique with any wording that doesn’t come with a shadow layer, which is almost every font you download that is not a true “Cricut font”.
How to Make a Cricut Monogram using Monogram It! Lite app
To make the Cricut monogram, the easiest way is with an app. I mentioned the Monogram It! Lite app on my Ultimate Resource Guide of Cricut Ideas (click here). You can download it for free on both Android and Apple play store (Android found here). After a few months of using it, I ended up paying for the extras for a whopping $0.99!
It is a pretty straight forward app. Just enter the letters you want to be monogrammed and click on the different fonts on the bottom row.
Keep moving your cursor over all the white spaces and clicking so they turn into the checkered pattern. You can zoom in and out with the magnifying glasses in the top right to get the small spaces. Once you have all the white gone, click continue.
If you only want one layer, you can stop there and go on to “Make It”. If you’d like to create a shadow (an image that’s slightly bigger like I have), watch my video tutorial at the top of the page on how to make one!
Pretty easy, right? You can use this technique with almost anything you want a shadow layer of! I cut my top layer out of glitter Cricut vinyl and the shadow out of Oracal 651 and applied them to my glitter tumbler.
For this tumbler, I applied mod podge over the top instead of epoxy. Click here to check out full tutorial how to make this decorated tumbler with pictures!
