  • Shake up your paints
  • Once your Cricut cutting is complete, click done.
  • Keep that design on the screen for reference when you weed because we're making a stencil.
  • In a well lit area, weed out design to create negative space. Use the black area on you screen as a guide to what you'll be weeding out.
  • Peel off contact paper and add a little fuzz by sticking it to your clothing. (Just trust me on this one)
  • Now lay that contact paper back over your stencil avoid air bubbles.
  • Use your Cricut scraper and push out air bubbles.
