How to Design Coasters in Cricut Design Space

I finally decided to try making coasters with my Cricut Maker.

I’ve made many t-shirts, banners, and mugs and have loved every project. I felt it was time to branch out and try something new. Coasters seemed like the next best thing.

For this project, I used Cricut Ceramic Coaster Blanks. These blanks can sustain very high heat (400 degrees F).



Here are the steps to designing personalized coasters in Design Space:

  • > 1 – Start a New Project and select the circle shape. Drag the circle to size 3.5″. The circle colour doesn’t matter, you can leave it black. I like to make mine grey.
  • > 2 – Type out text you would like on your coasters. Choose clipart if wanted.

  • > 3 – Size text as desired. Add text and position in the circle shape.
  • > 4 – Once text is in position select the entire circle and text. Then select “slice” and remove all the extra pieces. Delete what you don’t need.

  • > 5 – Repeat as needed. (If you’re doing the same coaster multiple times, just cut and paste).

Note: Sometimes the slice tool is temperamental. I have sliced with the text under the circle on occasion. This works just as well as when the text is visible on top.
