2022 is the year of the Tiger, from February 1st we can celebrate all that is wonderful about the Tiger in Chinese culture. Thus I have created a special Chinese New Year alphabet for the Year Of The Tiger to celebrate the courageous Tiger’s amongst us. Also check out my Celebration Alphabet which is also perfect for New Year Celebrations. Also check out my Year of the Ox Alphabet.
The Tiger is the 3rd animal in the Chinese Zodiac, falling behind the Rat and the Ox. The Tiger was not always part of the Chinese Zodiac, but took the place of the Lion. For more on the story behind the Tiger and how it became the king on all kings and the 3rd in the zodiac check out the how the Tiger took over from the Lion.

To Make Your Sign With My Chinese New Year Alphabet
Start by uploading your SVG file to Cricut Design Space or Glowforge and size your Chinese New Year Sign.
To size in Cricut Design Space simply use your mat as a guide, click on the arrow in the corner and simple drag the file to make it bigger or smaller. You can also add an offset to your file by clicking on the offset tool on the top bar.
If you are cutting on Glowforge, make sure you upload the SVG file, you are unable to cut PNG files, ( However can engrave PNG files.) Simple click the + sign in the top bar, choose upload and select your file. Now drag the file to the correct size and click on the image to select cut.
You can now select the correct materials for whatever machine you are using, and send your project to cut or print.
Once cut or printed, weed the sign, remove any protective backings and use stars or diamanté to decorate. This is personal, however I chose to decorate “THE” as it was the largest bold word.
Now you can add string to hang your Year Of The Tiger, Chinese New Year sign or mount it in a frame. This file can also be cut smaller to make a card or scrapbooking layout. Or create your own creation or banner with the rest of my alphabet and numbers.
