The Weld Tool for Cricut is an essential tool to make crafting and cutting much easier.

The Weld tool allows you to attach two images or text together as if they were one piece.

For example, you can use Weld to create a collage of photos or to make a custom logo.

To use the Weld tool, simply select the images you want to combine and then click the Weld button in the bottom toolbar.

What Does The Weld Tool Do?

The app will automatically detect any overlapping edges and weld them together.

You can then adjust the position of each image within the design and even add additional elements, such as text or embellishments.

The weld tool can also be used to attach multiple pieces together, such as when you’re creating a multi-layered design.

Potential Problems With Welding

When it comes to using any type of tool or feature you can expect to come into some conflict from time to time.

Sometimes you might find that your letters or images did not weld together.

If this happens, zoom in and check to make sure every image or letter is overlapping.

The overlap is what the weld tool picks up and welds the pieces together at, so it’s necessary for them to overlap somewhere.


Welding your images or fonts together is a useful tool when it comes to creating crafts.
