Washi Sheets: Cutting and Application Instructions

Cutting Washi Sheets with a Cricut Machine

  1. Place washi sheet (liner side down) onto Cricut cutting mat. 
  2. Select and size images, and load mat into the machine. 
  3. Refer to Washi Sheet Kiss Cut Guide table below to adjust machine settings. A kiss cut is a cut that only goes through the washi sheet, and leaves the liner intact. 
  4. Press CUT. 

 

Application

  1. Remove the negative pieces from each of the images using the weeder tool found in the Cricut Tools Basic Set.
  2. Gently remove washi material from the liner by hand or with transfer tape and apply to project.

    Washi material is delicate, so use care when removing from the liner.

  3. Burnish (rub or polish) the washi material using a craft stick or the scraper found in the Cricut Tool Kit to remove air bubbles and seal it to the project.
