Cricut print then cut: Design Space Shape + Image
In this part 2 tutorial: you will learn how to attach an image onto a shape. As I mentioned in my previous tutorial, the flatten tool can be really tricky and a little glitchy, but you will have no problems as long as you follow these steps.
Start by opening Design space
and choose a shape for your project. For my example, I will choose the hexagon.
Select a shape
Change the color and size of your shape.
Add an image
Select images and find an image in the gallery. of Design Space I went with a unicorn (#MA4E261A is the code in DS).
Resize the image, then with only the image selected, find operation in the top toolbar.
Double check your layers panel
Your layers panel should look similar to mine. Only the image you are printing onto the shape, which you will be cutting) should say Print Then Cut. Notice that the shape still says basic cut.
Now we are going to flatten the layers, but it is very important you flatten by selecting layers in the layers panel.
Deselect everything by clicking anywhere on the blank canvas.
In the LAYERS PANEL (not boxing layers for selection — see video below), select the layers individually by selecting the group of layers from the image, and the shape while holding shift. Select Flatten.
