I am wanting to cut out a word in Cricut craft room and have it curve up and then back down like it is around a circle.
Does anyone know how to do this? I have noticed they did this with the word Cookies on an example of the Chalkboard font cartridge.

The way I do it, is to place a circle the size you want on the mat and then place the individual letters around it. Remove the circle before cutting.

If you're not using vinyl, you can just cut your letters and a circle and place the circle on your project and glue the letters around it.

In the CCR, once you have your "object" placed then select text from the tabs on the left. It will give you the option to adjust size of the letters, the spacing between them and then play with the kerning (or slant as it's called in CCR)so the letters will lean a bit better around the curve. You can also adjust the X/Y position of each letter in the features above the mat, once you have them centered over the object you can adjust the 'wave' of your text by adjusting the position up or down.
