Step by Step Tutorial
Upload the free Snowflake SVG to Cricut Design Space. If needed, this tutorial will show you how to upload files to Cricut Design Space. Before editing the design, you will need to ungroup the layers. To do this, click on the top layer (which will select all layers) and then select “ungroup”.
When using a Cricut, you will need to change the layer with the red lines to “Score” instead of “Cut” in Design Space. If your cutting machine does not have the scoring option, hide those layers and score the snowflakes by hand or with your scoring board and stylus after you cut it. If don’t want to fold the snowflakes, you will want to hide the layers as you won’t need to score them.
Attach your score lines with the snowflake by selecting your snowflake layer and 3 score line layers and click “Attach.” Resize your snowflakes as needed.
Select “Make It” and prepare your light grip cutting mat as shown in the preview. You can also rearrange where your items will cut by clicking on the item and moving it on the mat.
Place your scoring stylus in Clamp A of your machine.
**Note: If you are adding the folds to your snowflake, you will need to place the glitter side down on your cutting mat.
Cut and remove your design from the mat.
*Tip: When removing cardstock, I put the mat face down on the ground and roll the mat off of the design. The cardstock comes right off this right!
Fold on the score lines to give your snowflakes a 3-D effect. Add string or ribbon by gluing it to the back if making ornaments.
