How to Use a Free Graduation SVG with Vinyl
If you’re new to using SVG files with your Cricut machine, make sure you read my full post on How to Upload an SVG to Cricut Design Space.
Upload the Free SVG file to your cutting software and size it to fit your card or sign. If using Iron on vinyl, make sure to MIRROR the design before cutting (you don’t have to mirror with adhesive vinyl), and then cut when ready. Weed away the extra vinyl.
For adhesive vinyl designs, use transfer paper to move your vinyl design from the backing to your project.
Use the EasyPress 2 to press the vinyl design onto your design. The EasyPress 2 or EasyPress Mini allow you to control the temperature of heat you apply, making it perfect for paper projects. Set your EasyPress to the lowest setting for paper and heat for 5-10 seconds at a time to prevent burning your paper.
If you’re using the Cricut EasyPress, for recommendations based on your materials, you can check out the Cricut EasyPress Recommended Settings.
