This is an Instagram reel that I made to show you a quick version of the process! Check it out and leave me a comment over there with what you think!

Step 1: Choose your Font Style

The first step you need to take is to choose the font style of your monogram through the Design Space. Once you have connected your Cricut Joy device to your laptop or computer, you can choose a font from the countless options available.

You can choose cursive, bold, italic, Greek, single initial, double initial, triple initials, circle monogram styles, or other types based on your personal preferences. Make sure the font style you select complements your home décor so that when it’s placed on a wall or artwork, it doesn’t look out of place.

Pro Tip: On triple initial monograms, the middle initial is your last name and is typically .5x larger than the other two initials!

Step 2: Choose the Appropriate Material

Cricut Joy has an extensive range of materials with different colors and finishes that you can use for your projects, such as vinyl, paper, cardstock, and even Cricut iron-on. The choice of material depends on the purpose of the monogram – whether it’s going to be used indoors or outdoors.

If it’s a wall décor or synthetic material like my dining chairs, then Cricut smart vinyl will be an excellent choice as it sticks really well.

Step 3: Start Cutting with Cricut Joy

Once you have selected your preferred font style and material, it’s time to start cutting using the Cricut Joy. Set the size of your monogram initials based on your surface size and start cutting using your personalized settings for blade depth and pressure.

Cricut Joy makes it extremely easy to cut materials because it takes care of most of the settings for you. Use your Cricut Joy mat (it’s so small 4″x 6″ and oh so cute)! Make sure to double-check the size of your design and the material before you start cutting to avoid any wasted material.
