In this Editable Activity: Cricut Print Then Cut guide, I am going to show you step by step how to use the Cricut files included with your purchase from my store.

Step 1: Edit your activity using Adobe Reader on a desktop or laptop computer. 

1. Open your file on a desktop or laptop computer with the free program Adobe Reader or the paid version Adobe PRO . {If you have ADOBE PRO, you will want to use that and save yourself a few steps}. (Download the FREE Adobe Reader here!)

2.  Type your desired words into the word list page. (Use all of the word spots or you will have blank game pieces.) 

3.  The words will autofill where they are needed throughout the entire activity.

4. The Adobe program you are using will determine your next steps:

  • For Adobe PRO: Go to File: Save As, select the folder you want to save in. On the Format drop down menu select PNG. Then click save. This will save your file’s pages into individual PNG files. 


  • For the FREE Adobe Reader: Go to File: Save as, select the folder you want to save in. Name your file a new name, and save it as a PDF. (Giving your file a new name will give you the option to go back into the original and add new words.)
    • Navigate to the website 
    • Upload the file you just created to the website. Select PDF to PNG.
    • When the file is done converting, download the zip file.  This will have your PNG files in it.

Step 2: Add the PNGs into Cricut Design Space. 

  1. Open Cricut Design Space and log in. 
  2. Create New Project.
  3. Select Upload then navigate to your folder where you just saved the PNG files. Open the folder and select the first file.
  4. Select “Simple” then “Continue.”
  5. Use the Magic Eraser to remove the white background. Then click “continue.” 
  6. Make sure “Save as Print then Cut Image” is selected and then click “continue.”
  7. Upload the rest of the files using the above steps. 
  8.  Select all of the files you just uploaded and then click “Insert”
  9.  Resize all the images. Keep the proportions locked. Adjust the height first to 9.25″. Then if the width is not at or below 6.25″ resize the width the 6.25″.
  10. Save the project. 

From here you can now send the project to your printer and your Cricut by clicking “Make it.”
