Making Tiny Bows – Cricut Tutorial

September 18, 2020

Cricut Design Space Bow Designs

Today, I’m going to teach you how to make tiny bows using two of the bow designs in Cricut Desk Space.  

I don’t ordinarily think of myself as dense (even though we all have our moments), but when I first got my Cricut and saw some of the files for bow designs, I had to scratch my head.

I mean, come on.  These 2 below are the files…and there aren’t directions.  In my opinion they are NOT intuitive!  

If you are an experienced Cricut user, this is not your tutorial.  But if you are looking at the two pictures below going “huh? how is that a bow?”, you are in the right place!

Video Tutorial

Over the years, I have learned to think more three-dimensionally and can now look at a file and understand without putting it in my hand how it’s going to go together. 

I’ve put together a video tutorial for you, and it’s quick.  We will go through both of these in about 10 minutes.

I’ll show you how to find the bows in Cricut Design Space, make them however tiny you like, and then assemble them!

The bow design on the right in purple is a free Cricut Design Space file, but it seems that the one on the left is free if you have Design Space Access.

Don’t know what Access is?  I wouldn’t Cricut without it!  Cricut Access is a subscription service that give you access to a ridiculous number of available designs to use.  I’ll add my affiliate link for you here in case you’d like to read more:
