How to Layer Vinyl Video
The easiest way to explain this method is really in a video so I made a short one that you can watch below.
Basically, the method involves adding small squares to each layer in Cricut Design Space before you cut it. This allows you to see where to line up the layers. You can then stack and line them up on your transfer tape, remove the squares, and stick onto your surface. Simple yet effective!
If you have ever wanted to learn how to layer vinyl, I would definitely give this method a try. Especially if you have a complicated design. The sunflower SVG is fairly simple and may not need the squares but some designs are a bear to line up!
So, if you find layering vinyl difficult, be sure to use this method on your next project. I think you will find it is tons easier!
