  • Cricut Joy

  • Champagne flute or glass
  • Craft stash vinyl (optional)
  • Creative Craft Products Tools (Scraper, Weeding Tool)
  1. Measure Your Glass: Start by measuring the height and width of your glass. For example, you may have a height of around 10 cm and a width of 5 cm.
  2. Select Your Vinyl: Choose an adhesive vinyl in your preferred Christmas colour. Craftstash offers a wide range of vinyl colours and finishes.
  3. Design Your Name: In Cricut Design Space, type out the recipient's name. You can choose from free fonts available in the software. Ensure the font is easily readable, and resize it to approximately 8 cm in length, making sure it doesn't exceed the glass's height (e.g., 2.23 cm in width).
  4. Cut the Vinyl: Send the design to your Cricut Joy, using a red vinyl sheet. Use your Creative Craft Products Tools, like the scraper and weeding tool, to handle the vinyl efficiently.
  5. Apply the Vinyl: Gently remove the backing sheet of the vinyl and place the vinyl cutout onto the glass. Use the grid on your mat to align it perfectly. Press the vinyl down with your finger to accommodate the glass's shape. Peel off the transfer tape, leaving your personalized table decoration ready.
  6. Reuse or Remove: After Christmas, you can easily peel off the vinyl and reuse the glass for other occasions.

  4. Add Text: Add the recipient's name or a message to the smaller heart shape.
  5. Size and Attach: Resize and position the text inside the heart. Make sure the two layers are attached before cutting and drawing.
  6. Cut and Draw: Follow the on-screen instructions to use the blade and pen in your Cricut Joy.
  7. Attach the Tag: Use the hole you created to thread some twine or ribbon through and attach it to your gift.

Cricut Christmas Project 3: Festive Paper 3D Ornaments

CraftStash Shopping List:

  • Cricut Joy
  • Cardstock in various colours or single-color cardstock
  • Twine or ribbon
  • Creative Craft Products Book Binding Glue
  1. Design Your Star: In Cricut Design Space, create a star shape that matches the size you want for your ornament.
  2. Slice the Star: Add a square shape on top of half of the star and select both shapes to "Slice" them, creating two half-star shapes.
  3. Create the Hole: Add a small circle for the hole and duplicate it. Position these holes on each half-star for threading later.
  4. Cut and Assemble: Cut around 30 half-star shapes from your chosen cardstock. As you remove them from the mat, keep track of which half belongs to which star.
  5. Glue and Layer: Apply glue to the bottom and top points of one half-star and attach another half-star on top. Continue alternating where you apply glue and layering the stars until all are adhered together. This will create a folded, honeycomb-like effect.
  6. Thread and Close: Attach twine or ribbon inside one of the halves before gluing it to the other half. Allow the glue to dry.
  7. Enjoy Your 3D Bauble: Open up your ornament to reveal the beautiful 3D effect, and hang it on your tree or around your home.

These 3D ornaments are not only easy to make but can also be customized in different shapes and colors to suit your Christmas decor theme.

There you have it! Three fun and festive Christmas Cricut ideas to make your holiday season extra special. Whether you're personalizing your table decor, creating unique gift tags, or crafting 3D ornaments, your Cricut Joy will be your holiday helper. Happy crafting, and may your Christmas be filled with joy and creativity!
