For the life of me I just can't figure it out. If I wanted to have a design that said "Merry Christmas" but I wanted it to be in a circle but the letters not welded, but the letters welded to the circle? Any help would be great. Confused
TIA

Hello! This feature is not available on cricut Craft Room. You can place the images wherever you would like. And it is possible with some work to make a circular design, however there is not a feature that allows you to plot images in a circle. I hope this answers your question!

would this be anything close to what you are trying to do. This is how I did it. Not sure it would work with more complicated font styles.

First I placed a circle on my mat, sized it like i wanted, next on second layer I typed the letters using the text box feature, sized like I wanted, clicked done and then ungrouped the letters. I then started placing them around the circle, barely touching the first layer circle, rotating as necessary with each letter, tweeked the spacing some (needs some more tweeking, but didn't take the time to do it). Once it was like I wanted, I copy and pasted another circle from the first mat layer to the second mat layer. Took note of the x & y coordinates on the layer 1 circle and then typed in those same coordinates on the second layer to place the circle in the exact same spot, chose weld (adjust as necessary if some of the letters are not touching.

By doing the first circle on a seperate layer, it is easier to get your spacing with the two layers being in different colors. Of course this circle can be deleted as it won't be cut. It was just used as a guide.
