    offset path rather than convert strokes to outlines.... or if you do convert strokes, then just ungroup and add them all together into one shape.
    also, setting a cut path using a stroke swatch rather than an object fill may result in being read as two paths.

    To make strokes into paths go to...

    OBJECT>EXPAND

    and it will make your stroke a path,
    "UNGROUP" then go to

    WINDOW>PATHFINDER select your graphic that needs welding and hit the "add to shape area" button then hit "EXPAND" on your pathfinder window.
