Cutting Window Cling with a Cricut Machine
- Position top-left corner of window cling, liner side down, in the top-left corner of Cricut StandardGrip cutting mat; load mat into the machine.
- Select images and size.
- Refer to the Window Cling Kiss Cut Guide table below to adjust machine settings. A kiss cut is a cut that only goes through the window cling and leaves the liner intact.
- Press CUT.
Tip: For Design Space: If cutting an intricate image, be sure you have toggled the Mirror switch ON in the Prepare screen. The Expression 2 machine also has a "mirror" option. This will allow you to use the window cling liner to transfer the cut image to a surface for ease of applying the design to your project surface.

- Ensure that your project surface is clean and dry.
- Remove the negative pieces from each of the images using the weeder tool found in the Cricut Tools kit.
- Place part of the window cling on the surface and peel away the backing. Alternatively, peel away liner and apply by hand.
- Burnish the window cling using the Cricut scraper, also found in the Cricut Tools Basic Set, to remove air bubbles.
Tip: If you choose to cut through both the window cling and the liner, you can use the same application steps above.
Important: Results may vary. Always do a test cut to verify settings.
