Alright, if you like, get my free design at my resource library or choose one of your own. Measure your spatula flat area. In design space, choose shapes and the square. Unlock the shape handle and drop you spatula dimensions into the dimension boxes. Choose arrange and and it to the back. Now move the design over it and size it to fit. Once you are happy with your design placement, delete the shape.
Engrave the Dollar Tree Spatula
Tape the spatula at the bottom of a strong grip mat. Secure it appropriately in the middle on the bottom of the mat with some painters tape.
So far so good! Go ahead and press make it. Then select SnapMap. Hold your phone level above the mat until the lines frame the mat and turn green. When it is right, SnapMat will take a photo that you can now use to place your design.
If you are happy with the photo choose use.
Click on the design and drag it down to the spatula. I turned mine upside down so it would look right on the spatula. Play with the placement until you are happy with it.
Click continue and connect to the Cricut Maker. Choose stainless steel for the material and install the engraving tool. It will be stamped 41 for easy identification.
Move the rollers to the side and load the mat. While supporting the back of the mat, press the load button. Then when the light green light flashes push to start. It may take a while since it will do the design 3 times to make sure it’s good and deep for visibility. Use the painters tape to dab off any shavings.
