  3. On the canvas page, tap Shape and insert any shape you like. It will act as a guide for the text you want to curve.
  4. Now, click on the T icon and select the Font of your choice.
  5. Place your text above your shape, click the Action icon in the popup menu, and select Ungroup.

How to Curve an Image on the Cricut App

Cricut Design Space does not offer a built-in feature to curve an image as the app primarily focuses on text and vector graphics.

However, you can use other features such as Slice and Layers to get similar results. You can ungroup and cut your image into smaller sections and then layer it again in a curved manner.

  1. Open Cricut and create a New Design.
  2. Select two shapes of your choice.
  3. Overlap them a little and then select them as a whole by dragging your finger from top to bottom of the shapes.
  4. Now, in the slider bar find and tap on Slice.
  5. Your shapes will be sliced in the way you overlapped them. The result will be similar to ungrouping letters.
  6. Now, manually arrange sliced shapes in curved form.

  3. Select Text, type S, and edit the font style and size accordingly.
  4. Tap the Lock icon to unlock the Size lock near the font size. 
  5. Then extend, rotate, or change operation as per your preference. You will have a curved line in your Cricut project.

Can You Curve Welded Text in Cricut Design Space?

No, you cannot curve welded text in Cricut Design Space. Curving text and welding text are two separate actions that affect the text in different ways.

Welding text permanently combines the letters into a single shape and is no longer editable as individual letters.

Therefore, if you weld text before curving it, the software won’t recognize the letters as separate entities and won’t allow curving.

Why Can’t I Curve My Font in Cricut?

If you are unable to curve text in Cricut even after following the above workarounds, then some of the common reasons can be causing the issue:

  • You can curve or edit your text multiple times in Cricut, but when you apply Weld to the final result, your text will become uneditable.
  • If you have multiple lines in a single text box, then the curved tool will not be able to function.
  • The curved tool will also not work unless you have ungrouped your text letters.
