How To Upload Your Printable Snowman PNG Alphabet Letters And Numbers To Cricut Design Space.
Start by clicking upload in the bottom left hand corner of Cricut Design Space, a box will appear where you can select browse. Now find you download file and choose the Printable Snowman PNG folder, these are the files you will need for design space.
Select the printable Snowman PNG Alphabet letters and numbers you require one at a time. When you choose a letter you will see the box below. Select complex and click continue in the Botton right corner.
Next you’ll be taken to a screen where you can remove the back off the file, however I have done this for you, click continue in the bottom left corner. Now you will get the choice to save your printable alphabet as a cut file or a print then cut file. You must save as print then cut.
You can now bulk select the letters and numbers for your Snowman project to pull into Cricut Design Space.
How To Create Your Printable Snowman Alphabet Tags With Cricut
Start by sizing your printable snowman letter to exactly the size you want and creating an offset. Once you have created your offset click on it and change it to a cut file, then click on contour on the bottom right corner and click contour and remove all contours to make the offset layer a solid image.
Now create a contour of the contour layer. Once you have down this put layers one (snowman) and the contour to one side. You now need to duplicate your second contour layer and flip one of the layers so it is back to back and lines up exactly.
Next grab a square or oblong from design space unlock it and drag it longer to bridge the gap between the two letters and weld together to create one solid image. Its a good idea to grab a score line and attach that to the middle of the card so you can score it with your Cricut machine when cutting.
Cutting You Snowman PNG Letter Tag
Now line up your projects and if you are happy it all lines up you can send it to print and cut. They need to be 6.75.x 9.25 or less to use the print and cut feature, so the sizing below was incorrect and I had to make it smaller.
- I cut my card back layer with blue card stock.
- The offset layer with silver glitter card.
- And the snowman on printable white card stock.
Now click make it, this will take you to the print preview page, ensure you feed your card the correct way into the printer and press print. When you unload your printer avoid touching the black guide line around the edge of the printed snowman letters as I find this can smudge easily.
Once printed, gently put the card from your cutting mat, I don’t roll it with a brayer as I usually would, simply gently press around the edge. But always ensure I use a sticky mat and ensure the edges are well stuck down.
You will now be taken to the cut screen, here you can choose your material, I chose heavy card stock for this project.
If You Don’t Have Cricut ?
You can upload our Snowman PNG Alphabet to Canva, this is a great programme for making posters and cards, or indeed Word or Pages. We have provided a set on Jpg files for use in these programs if you would prefer your Printable Snowman Alphabet to have the white background on.
Building Your Snowman Christmas Tags
Once all of your layers are printed and cut, fold the card along the score to really crease the line. Then you can add the glitter offset layer, I use cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Glue as I find it allows me to adjust my project before it dries.
When you are happy with placement add your printed snowman letter with glue.
Lastly use a hole punch to make a hole and thread string through to create your tag. You will notice this tag is backwards but I figured I wanted to use the edge of the letter with more card on it to make the tag sturdier. If I was making a card I would maybe mount my letter onto a card to it looked right.
