I try to find a new way to wrap my Christmas presents every year and this year I has a new toy to play with - my Cricut Explore
Since it's the season of giving gifts I thought I would share my SVG file with you and instructions on how to add the lettering - hope you guys enjoy using it
Step 1 - Download the SVG file
Click on the image below and down load my christmas.svg file
Step 2 - Upload SVG to Cricut Design Space
Upload the christmas.svg file buy selecting the vector upload option and then choose the image to import
Step 3 - Add your text
Add text to your image
Turn it black and then move it so that the centre is touching to one of the lines on the line.
Once it is touching the line, ungroup the text
When the text is ungrouped you can move the letters individually. This means you can slightly turn the text so that it an all be moved to touch the line on the image.
Once you've finished moving all the text on one line, select each of the letters and click on "group" so they are linked back together.
Then select both the sentence and the image, before clicking the Weld button to link the test to the image. Repeat until you have added text to all the lines.
Step 4 - Link your star
There will be a gap between your text on the top line and one of the falling stars so link it up by adding a square and move it until it fits between the bottom of the letter and the star. Remember to weld the square to the image so that it stays in place when cutting.
Step 5 - cut out the image
Cutting out these tags with my Explore, I then glued them to the front of my gifts, finishing it of by writing the recipients name on the tree with a gold pen.
I'll be back,
