Looking to add a personal touch to your gifts this holiday season? Creating your own custom christmas cricut gift tags is a fantastic idea. With the help of a Cricut machine and some craft supplies, you can make beautifully crafted Christmas-themed tags that are sure to impress your friends and family. In this step-by-step tutorial, we'll show you how to create your own custom christmas cricut gift tags using a free SVG file that we provide. These custom christmas cricut gift tags are perfect for the festive season, but you can use them for any occasion. So, let's get crafting!

Materials You'll Need:

  • Cricut Machine
  • Craft Stash tools and materials (optional)
  • Cardstock
  • Ribbon, twine, or string
  • FREE SVG download (see link below)

Step 1: Preparing Your SVG

Once you've downloaded your free SVG file, open it in Cricut Design Space. By default, all the elements will be grouped together, so ungroup them. Your SVG file includes five different tag shapes and an alphabet.

Tip: If your tags need names with duplicate letters, make a few extra copies of the alphabet. Place these duplicates close together, so they're easily accessible when you're personalising each tag.

Step 2: Personalising the Tags

Start by selecting one of the tag shapes and remove the rest. In the Layers tab, make sure your tag is at the bottom of the layer order.

Change the color of your tag and keep the alphabet black for better visibility. Now, ungroup the alphabet and select the letters for the name you want to add.

Once you've chosen the letters, group them together and adjust their size if needed. Next, bring back the tag shape and adjust the name inside so it looks just right.

Step 3: Creating Your Custom Design

Now that your tag looks perfect, you can further customise it. If you want to add additional elements like snowflakes, follow the same steps for combining and subtracting as you did for the name. Play around with these elements until you're satisfied with your design.

Step 4: Sending to Your Cricut

Once you've created all the personalised tags you need, send them to your Cricut Machine. Duplicate each shape before cutting to create a back mat without the cut-out name. This mat will help the name stand out more.

Watch as your Cricut Machine works its magic, cutting out your beautifully designed gift tags.

Step 5: Assembling Your Tags

With your shapes now cut out, you can assemble your tags. Place the cutout piece on top of the base layer. The contrast between the two will make your design pop.

Thread a piece of ribbon, twine, or string through the hole at the top of each tag. Your tags are now ready to be attached to your special gifts.
