  • Click the Upload button, then click the Upload Image button.
  • Click the Browse button and locate the SVG files you are going to use.

The files will be uploaded to Design Space and will appear in the Uploaded Images gallery. From there you can access them and work on them.

Upload the files and cut the pieces one by one: the watering can, the flowers, and finally the label. If you don’t have a cutting machine, such as Cricut, you can print the shapes from the PDF files and cut them by hand.
