Thank You Gift Tag

This cute little gift tag would be the perfect addition to a Thank You gift!  It features three pretty flowers, which I’ve used pop dots under for my tag, to give it a little dimension.  I also added rhinestones for my flower centers for some sparkle.

I’d recommend cutting your tag at four inches wide, or more.  The font is somewhat delicate, and will cut better the bigger it is.  If you have a sticky mat, and a sharp blade, it would probably do OK a bit smaller.

I used my new Cricut Maker to cut out my Thank You tag, and chose the medium cardstock setting.  I think I could have gotten away with the light cardstock setting though, and perhaps I wouldn’t have had any issues with my letters lifting while cutting.  I should have used the new mat my Cricut came with as well, as mine has definitely seen better days!

Sweet As Can Bee Garland

This cute garland was made using my Bee and Flower SVG.  I flattened my image in my Cricut program, and did a print and cut several times of each image.  I used white card stock to print them onto.  I kept the white background behind each because I thought it made them pop a little more.

I added black gems to the bee’s feelers, and purple gems to the center of each flower, to give them a little sparkle.  I then attached each one onto a long string, which I pre-measured, with my hot glue gun.  This would be super cute as a baby shower decoration, or for a toddler’s bee themed birthday!

I also made this quick card using my Sweet As Can Bee SVG.  This graphic comes with a white background for doing print and cuts, which is what I did.  For the card, I simply cut a piece of white card stock at 4 inches by 8 inches, and folded in the middle.  I the cut a piece of yellow with black polka dotted paper at 4 inches wide and tall, and attached it to the front with double sided tape.  I also cut a black piece of card stock at 2 inches by 4 inches, and attached it to the bottom of my card, along with 1/4 inch strips of yellow paper glued on top.  I rounded the corners using a corner punch.  My Sweet As Can Bee image was then stuck on with pop dots to make it pop off the paper a little.

These are quick, simple, and cute projects that can be done with this bee SVG.  Other ideas include cupcake toppers, gift tags, signs, and t-shirt decals.

New Christmas SVG Files

Merry Christmas crafters!  Today I’m sharing with you some of my latest Christmas SVG files, which you can use to add to your holiday crafts and projects.  I still can’t believe we’re already into December!  I’ve been working on some new Christmas decorating ideas around the house this year, and have been inspired by all the beautiful tiered trays and Dollar Tree ideas I’ve seen online.  I’ll post some of the Christmas DIYs I’ve been working on soon.

Some ideas for using my Christmas SVG files are Christmas cards, signs, heat transfer logos, mugs, and gift tags.  These SVG files can be cut out with machines like the Cricut Explore, Cricut Maker, and the Silhouette Cameo.  Or, you can simply print these graphics with your printer at home, and add them to a cute a frame.  There are just so many cute and festive ideas out there!  To view the graphics above simply follow these links:

It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Have A Holly Jolly Christmas

Baby It’s cold Outside

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas 

When creating your craft projects you don’t have to keep my files as is.  They can be re-worked in your program to fit your desired shape.  For example, I used my Baby It’s Cold Outside coffee cup graphic to create this cute sign.  But, instead of keeping it as it, I un-grouped it in my Cricut program, and placed the phrase and snowflakes outside of my cup.

I purchased a sign from the Dollar Tree, and painted it with white paint.  I then added gray lines to make it look like beadboard, and more gray around the edges and front of the sign to give it a rustic, farmhouse look.

My cup was cut out of 3 pieces of cardboard, which I got from cereal boxes, and the lid and sleeve were cut out 3 times each as well, just to give my sign a little dimension.  Each piece was glued together with mod podge, then painted brown and red.  I did, however, mod podge some fun Christmas paper onto my sleeve for extra color.  Little white highlights were painted around the edges of my cup with a tiny paintbrush and white paint.  To finish off the cup, I added a little red bow, a wooden snowflake (which I got from the dollar store), and some Christmas greenery.

My Cricut machine was also used to cut out the text of my Christmas SVG file in vinyl, to use as a stencil.  I painted the text blue, and again, used my fine tip brush and white paint to add some highlights to the letters.  I then cut the snowflakes out of silver, glittery vinyl, and added them around my sign.

So, now you see how you can easily re-work my SVG files to create your own desired look and unique project!

Before I go, I’d like to note that all of my Christmas SVG files are currently on sale, so head on over to my SHOP to check them out, along with all the other fun designs I have to offer!  You can also follow me of Facebook for more updates, and to see what my Crafty Canada Studio customers are also creating with my files.
