Welcome back! For day three of the Getting Started with Cricut Explore we are going to look at how to use text in your projects. 

Whether you are wanting to add writing to a papercrafting project or creating words to cut out of vinyl, not understanding the basics of how to create text in Design Space 3 can cause a lot of frustration.

Adding Text

The first step is to insert text onto the canvas. Select the text tab on the left side of the canvas in the design panel. When you do, a text box will appear where you can add what you want to write.

As you type the words you want to use into the text edit box, the words will show in a text box above. If you want to move to another line you can simply hit enter.

Once you have your words typed in you can click on the text box and move, size or rotate the text.
