Hi everyone! I just got a cricut expression and gypsy and I need to cut an oval that is 2.25" long x 1" wide. So I can fit 30 on a 8.5x11 sheet of paper. How do I do that? I go to cut a 2.25" oval and it's 1.5" wide. So frustrating. I'm trying to cut out tags. Are there any word documents out there for these sizes that it cuts? I can only find word doc templates for avery labels. HELP!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!

Hi Donna,

I'm not sure if this answers your question but if you want to cut your oval with specific dimensions then all you have to do is choose your oval. On your basic screen the dimensions are listed, under the dimensions is a little chain. It is probably highlighted yellow. If you click on the chain so it is white, then you can click on your height and width dimensions individually. Make your height 2.25" and your width 1".

Hopefully this helps. Good luck!BigGrin

Are you using a Cricut? And Imagine? Gypsy? Design Studio?

Using a Cricut, you cannot change one measurement independently of the other. Generally, you set the size which is the height of the image and your Cricut sets the width to keep the image in proportion.

Using a Gypsy or Design Studio, you can change one measurement.

I agree with Larkspur about Design Studio. It is worth every penny. That was one of my main reasons for getting DS because I was wasting too much paper and wanted to know the exact measurements both height and width.

since you do have the gypsy you can select the width and height by first highlighting the oval (it will be blue) then by tapping on the chain link under the dimensions (as mentioned above).

tap on the chain link then the width, a number pad will come up, tap on that and another number pad will come up and you can put the width in. then tap on the height, the same thing will happen with the number pads. tap on the chain link again to make it yellow, this makes it so they are locked.


also click on the real size button. it looks like a small a with a line above it.

you can also copy and paste the oval so you don't have to do each one individually. and you can place them on the mat (on the g screen( where you want them to maximize your paper.
