Cricut How To: Cut out a face in Cricut Design Space (Video Tutorial)

Watch the video below to see how I make face cutouts using my Cricut and the Print & Cut feature in the Design Space. These are great for personalized cupcake toppers, masks, and a variety of other DIYs. As with any project featured on my blog, if you don’t have the supplies or desire to do this DIY on your own, Contact Me to place an order!

In this video I was making cupcake toppers with the face cut out. Full disclosure, I purchased the pictured cupcakes from Target since I didn’t want to have 24 cupcakes laying around my kitchen asking to be eaten! Additional full disclosure… I celebrated my 21st birthday a handful of years ago and these toppers were made for the sake of this tutorial only.

Here are the supplies and programs I needed to finish the project:

* I used Paint 3D for the first steps of this project since it was available to me on my laptop. If you have other photo editing programs that can make cutouts easily, those will work for this project, too.

  1. This is such a great idea putting pictures on cupcakes love to do it for my daughters birthday this year too.

  2. I see your bday is a day after mine 🙂 happy belated bday and Thanks for that tutorial, I found it
    pretty helpful in understanding to make these toppers. Super Cute!!

    1. Hey! Cute idea. I would follow the same general steps, but make it as large as your printer would allow and also save a version that is the shape of the head only (not print then cut) and cut it with something sturdier. Then you could glue the print out to it so it is a little more durable.
      It also depends on your idea of “giant,” since you’ll be limited to an 8×11 sheet of paper for the printing step.
      Hope that helps!

    2. Hey! Cute idea. (Hoping this isn’t a double comment because I tried to reply once and it seemed to fail!)
      I would follow the same basic steps outlined here, but make the image as large as your printer will allow. I would make sure to save a version of the face shape that is cut-only (not print then cut), so you can cut out the shape on something more durable (like poster board or thick card stock) and glue the face to it.
      The main issue will depend on your idea of “giant” since you’ll be limited by the fact that the largest size a standard printer can do is 8×11 paper. Hope that helps! -Lauren
