So…How do you use the Slice Tool in Cricut Design Space?

So I decided to teach myself and I am so excited that I did. Slicing is my favorite tool to use in Cricut Design Space. The biggest secret to Slicing in Cricut Design Space is remembering that you can only slice 2 things. Slicing one from the other.

I know that sounds like…duh. But listen to me. Sometimes we don’t realize that we have more than one layer and we try to Slice but it won’t let us.

Look on the right hand side of the canvas, how many layers do you have according to that? I have 3. Can you see that?

So when you are trying to Slice make sure you only have two pieces. 

Once you have that done, highlight your first piece, I usually pick the smallest and then press your shift key down on your keyboard and hold while clicking on the other design piece. Then click Slice. 

Every time you slice it will give you 3 pieces, I don’t know, just go with it. Delete the pieces you don’t want. 

That’s it! You have now just Sliced.
