Learn how to make a split letter monogram: Cricut design space video tutorial.
Some of the easiest and most unique gifts you can make with a Cricut are personalized signs, tiles, tumblers, etc. I think adding a split letter monogram with a name inside adds elegance to anything.
(This is not a split letter monogram I designed, but one that I found on google or in a Facebook for free at the time. You can always google “split letter monogram” and a bunch of paid and some free ones will come up.)
In this 4th installment of Cricut Design Space 101, I will be going over how to make a split letter monogram. With just using the slice function and weld function, you can whip up some in any font that you want.

What about Split Image Monograms??
Last year, our family of eleven took a two week long trip to Disney World and I decided I wanted to make two personalized shirts for each person…eek! This was no simple task, especially since I wanted everyone to have their favorite character and name on their shirt.
I ended up making a split image monogram of each Disney character, which is a little more time consuming than a split letter monogram since there are multiple layers.
But I love how they came out!!! If you’d like to learn how to make your own family DIY Disney shirts, make sure to watch the video tutorial on that post.
If you don’t want to split a letter, but would rather add a shadow layer, check out my video tutorial on making a shadow layer in Cricut Design Space by using the bleed.

How to Make a Split Letter Monogram
Explaining this to you in pictures would take a long time, so I put together another video tutorial. Just a few notes on what I mention in the video:
- To make a more ornate monogram, I added a FLOURISH to it. You can find these in the image section of CDS or you can google “flourish”
- I found my flourish on pixabay.com. This is a great site that offers free commercial use graphics and illustrations. You can use files from this site to make projects or digital files to sell.
