Upload your image to the Cricut Design Space. Measure the glass so you can determine what size to make the image. Resize the uploaded image (if needed) and click on “Make It”.
Select your machine on the next screen and then select with the Smart Set Dial Premium Vinyl under materials. Place the vinyl shiny side up on the mat and press the flashing button.
Once the images have been cut, turn over the mat and pull off the vinyl. Use the weeding tool to remove excess vinyl from the cut files.
Cut a piece of transfer tape that’s slightly larger than your image. Peel away the back of the transfer paper and press the tape down on top of the cut vinyl image. Use the scraper tool to press transfer tape into adhesive vinyl. I scrape for approximately 30 seconds and then gently lift the tape. If the image is not sticking to the tape, I scrape some more.
Tape the transferred image and center it on the glass. Press down on the tape to adhere the image to the glass. Use the scraper tool to push out any air bubbles. Make sure there are no wrinkles.
Using the scraper, press the transferred image onto the glass. Peel the transfer tape away.
