Yes, the rumor is true.

Cricut officially has a curving tool.

While I’m very vocal about how much I prefer Cricut Design Space over my time with Silhouette Studio, the biggest gripe I had was that there was no curve tool.

Sure, you could ungroup all the letters and manipulate them into a curve…but let’s be real – anytime I did this, it did NOT look good.

So you can bet I just about jumped for joy when I saw that Cricut’s latest update included the inclusion of an easy-to-use curving tool.

And while it seems pretty self-explanatory, I decided I should probably share a post…just in case 🙂

So, let’s get started! Below you’ll find step-by-step photos, but if you prefer video, here is that:

How to Use Curve in Cricut Design Space

Open Design Space and create a new canvas

Type out the text you’d like to curve. Just write the text for one line of text that you want to curve at a time.

Make sure you have selected your text, and then click on “curve” in the tool box at the top of your canvas.

Drag the little cursor on the curve tool to the right to curve down and to the left to curve the words up. Drag to either end of the line to make a complete circle.

Repeat as many times as you like!

And viola – easy as pie! Please let me know if you have any questions – happy to answer them!
