Making Frames in Cricut Design Space

Have you ever made frames or borders in Cricut Design Space?  It is really easy to do by using the basic shapes button along with the slice function.

Start off by making a shape like a square from the shape button on the left hand side of the screen.  Then unlock that square by clicking on the little padlock icon in the lower left corner of the image.  Adjust the square to make a rectangle by stretching it, or by entering the dimensions you want it to be in the tool bar on the top of the screen.

Next, right click on that rectangle and duplicate it.  Adjust the sizing for the second rectangle so it is slightly smaller than the first one.  

Now place one over the top of the other.  Make sure you now have both of the rectangles selected, and use the Align tool at the top of the screen to center the rectangles on top of each other.  Now Slice the smaller one out of the larger one.

Here is a quick video to show you how it all comes together.


You could also do this same technique with a circle to make a ring shape.
