How to add a Drip effect to Shapes in Cricut Design Space
First thing you want to do is open the design you want to add a drip effect to and a drip SVG file. If you don’t have one, you can grab one from here.
Go ahead and duplicate your shape.
Create a rectangle by drawing a square and unlocking the aspect ratio (this is the little lock you find on the bottom left side of the square).
Drag the rectangle across so that the length is the same as the Drip and tall enough to cover the upper bit of the shape which you will see later.
Select both shapes and Weld.
Align one of the shapes and the drip effect. You can resize and move the drip around until you're happy with the positioning. Once you're happy, go ahead and hit slice.
Delete the bits made from slicing that will not be needed. This is up to you which bits you want to use and not to use.
As you can see from the image below, you have created 2 styles to cut.
One style from the sliced action. Another style by placing the sliced drip on the duplicated shape.
And that’s it! All that's left is to use your created drippy design in your next project!
Thanks for reading and I hope you learned something new!
