How to Make a Gift Tag Shaker with your Cricut
Step 1 – Upload the Snow Globe Character SVG
Upload the snow globe Christmas character SVG to Cricut Design Space. If needed, this tutorial will show you how to upload files to Cricut Design Space. These characters are layered, so you can cut and paste each individual layer with cardstock, or use the print then cut feature. I chose to print then cut as this is much quicker! But I created them layered so you can use these designs in other projects as well.
To print then cut, you first need to flatten your designs. Select all your designs together and then select “flatten”. I chose to mix and match the tree with some of the characters for more variety.
Step 2 – Print Then Cut Your Snow Globe Characters
Select “Make It” and follow the prompts to print your characters. I used this white glitter cardstock to print the characters. This is my favorite cardstock ever! It works great with everything.
Once cut, place on your light grip mat and begin the cutting process.
Step 3 – Upload the Snow Globe Shaker Template
Next, upload your snow globe shaker pieces. Duplicate for as many snow globes as you would like to make. Select “Make It” and cut according to the mats.
Step 4 – Assemble your Snow Globe Christmas Shaker Gift Tags
Assemble your Snow Globe Christmas Shaker Gift Tags how you want them to look. I cut 2 different papers for each piece so I could create a variety of different tags. Glue your base pieces together (circle, bottom piece and character). My daughter assembled this part for me using a glue stick.
Step 5 – Glue the Clear Vinyl
Glue your clear vinyl to the outer circle piece.
Step 6 – Apply the Foam Tape and Add Glitter
Using your foam tape, cut small pieces and piece together around the outer circle of your snow globe piece. Push the foam tightly together so there are no cracks for the glitter to escape. Add glitter to your snow globe, keeping the edges clear to glue your top piece on. Although the foam is adhesive, I added a little glue for extra support to attach the pieces together.
**Note – to reduce static, brush each side lightly with powder before adding glitter and gluing together. You can use a baby powder or any type of translucent powder. I used make-up powder for this since it is what I had on hand.
Step 7 – Glue Shaker Gift Tags Together
Glue the final piece of your snow globe Christmas shaker gift tags together and let dry.
Step 8 – Add Your Ribbon
Once dry, you can attach any string or ribbon you like! You can write on the back for the to and from.
I am really in love with how these Snow Globe Christmas Shaker Gift Tags turned out! They are just adorable and didn’t take very long to put together.
