How Do You Cut a Sticker Without a Cricut?

When it comes to crafting, nothing is quite as satisfying as cutting out a perfect sticker. But what do you do when you don’t have access to a Cricut machine? Fortunately, there are several ways to cut stickers without a Cricut machine.

The simplest way to cut out a sticker without a Cricut is to use scissors and an X-Acto knife. Start by printing the sticker on adhesive paper or vinyl. Make sure that the adhesive side is facing down! Then, using the X-Acto knife, carefully trace around the outline of the sticker. Once you’ve done that, use scissors to cut along the lines you’ve traced with the X-Acto knife. This method works best for simple shapes, such as circles and squares.

If you want to be able to cut more intricate shapes or designs, then you’ll need something more precise than scissors and an X-Acto knife.

A craft puncher is a great alternative tool for cutting out stickers without a Cricut machine. Craft punches come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and can be used to create precise cuts in paper or vinyl. All you have to do is place your sticker on top of the craft punch and press down firmly – voila! Perfectly shaped stickers in no time at all!

Another option is to use a die cutting machine. Die cutting machines are larger and more expensive than craft punches but they offer greater accuracy and precision when it comes to cutting intricate shapes or designs into paper or vinyl stickers. Simply place your sticker onto the die cutting plate, adjust the settings according to your design, and let the machine do its magic!


Cutting stickers without a Cricut machine may seem like an impossible task but it doesn’t have to be! With just a few basic tools such as scissors, an X-Acto knife, craft punches or die cutting machines – you can easily create beautiful stickers for any project!
