How To Make Santa Claus Christmas Gift Tags
Star by uploading your Santa Head png Template Images to design space as print and cut images. Once in design space create a small offset; do this by clicking on the image, then clicking offset in the top bar. Change the offset to white, or any other colour you choose, check it is a print and cut image. Now right click, select and and click flatten both layers together in the bottom right corner of Design Space.
Now go into images a search Christmas Tags, this is totally down to personal choice. However I chose a simple design with a star cutout. You will need to size this, I sized my Christmas gift tags 3″ deep x 2″wide. Then duplicate it by however many times you need. I found with a bit of juggling my 12×12 cutting mat fit 16 tags.
Next size your Santa head to fit on the tag, and then multiply by 16 and send your project to make. I used Cricut Sparkle Paper for my tags and they are nice and thick, but also super sparkly.
A Few Useful Tips And Hints For Using Cricut Print And Cut
- Calibrate your printer before using with you Cricut, this will save so much time and effort.
- Load your paper the correct way into the printer. Obvious, I know, but I have made that mistake many times.
- Also avoid smudging the black guide lines when they come out of the printer.
- Load your Santa Head image the correct way into your Cricut as it appears in design space.
Building Your DIY Santa Christmas Gift Tags
Simply use strong double sided sticky pads to attach your Santa head to your sparkly gift tag for a 3d effect. Now use ribbon or string to attach to your Christmas gift.
