How to resize a project (Box - SVG file) in cricut design space

How to resize a project in cricut design space

Hello!

In today’s post, I’ll show you how to resize a project in Cricut design space. For this tutorial, I’ll be using a Box template – SVG file with solid lines, but you can resize any project! 

STEPS:

Step 1: First, upload your box template (SVG file with solid lines). Once, your box is uploaded, add to canvas.

Step 2: Now, select all pieces of the box template (SVG file) and make sure all of the pieces are grouped together. If they’re not, select all pieces and click the Group icon as shown in the picture in the right side.

Then, make sure the lock icon is locked because this will make the dimensions proportionate. If it is not locked, just click on the lock icon.

Step 3: There are two ways to resize your box template. One is to change the dimensions in the Size area at the top. The other way is to use the arrow as shown in the purple circle.

I’m going to show you the second way (The arrow) because I find it easier for this type of project.

Step 4: Next, go to shapes and make a square.

Step 5: Now, you need to change the size of the square and the size of the square will depend on the size of the cardstock you are going to use.

I’m going to use 12” x 12” cardstock, so my square is going to be 11.5” x 11.5” because this is the largest size that cricut can cut using that cardstock.
