We continue to explore the full range of what a Cricut cutting machine can do, and this time, we’re diving into the world of die cut stickers. Rather than being a standard shape like a circle, square, or rectangle, die cut stickers typically have an outline around the specific shape or design.

And since Cricut just released the Beta version of their new Offset feature, which will create an outline around a design, we decided to give it a whirl and see if we could make some fun stickers using the offset feature in Design Space.

So, we grabbed our Cricut Maker, fired up our Canon laser printer, grabbed some sticker paper and some cute cactus designs from Design Bundles and went to work!

As a lot of our Spring and Summer activities involve water, we wanted to be sure that whatever stickers we created were waterproof.

After testing several methods of waterproofing stickers, we landed on using a laminate over the sticker sheet after they were printed and before they were cut.

There are quite a few important points to note when doing this, so be sure to watch the full video tutorial below to catch all the tips!
