How to Use a PDF File in Cricut Design Space

1- Open Cricut Design Space and click on New Project.


2- We need to convert the PDF to a usable file in CDS so the easiest way is to use a PDF converter.
I am using PDF converter. Click on Upload Files.


3- A new window will open. Find your PDF and click Open.


4- You will see your file getting converted.


5- Download the new file. It will appear as a zipped file. Unzip the file.


6- Go back to CDS and click on Upload.


7- Click Upload Image.


8- Click Browse.


9- Select the converted PDF.


10- The file will appear on your Upload image screen. You will see that even though you have converted it to a PNG, there is still white around your images. If we cut at this point, all we would get is a large rectangle.
I am using the design, Valentine Doodle Clipart.


11- We need to remove the white parts. Click on Complex and then Continue.


12- Click on the magic wand. Then click the white area.


13- All the white will be removed.


14- You can also use the eraser tool to remove any extra pieces you do not need. Once you are happy click on Preview.


15- Check the silhouettes. Each one will be a cut line. Click Continue.


16- Select print and cut and then Save.


17- Your file will be now in your library. Select it and insert.


18- Your design will appear on your design area. Resize and then click Make It.


19- The print and cut lines will appear around your design. Follow the prompts to print then cut your design.
