holiday cricut® ornament

Make pretty, personalized holiday ornaments for your whole family! It’s so easy to add names to our shatter-proof ornaments with a little help from your Cricut® machine. Read below and we’ll show you how to DIY a whole Christmas tree’s worth!
Step 1
Open your Cricut® Design Space™ and click 'New Project'.
Step 2
Click on the ‘Text’ icon to the left of the screen, type the initial for the large initial and then choose a font. Size it to about 1¾" tall.
Step 3
Repeat Step 2, but type the name and size it to about ¾" tall, depending on the length of the name. In the right panel, change the color of the name so your machine knows when to prompt you to change the vinyl color when cutting.
Step 4
Click ‘Make It” in the upper right corner and then ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner.
Step 5
Place your first vinyl color, grid-side down, to your StandardGrip cutting mat and insert into your Cricut® machine. Select ‘Vinyl’ for the material and cut out your initial. Once the machine is done cutting the initial, gently peel vinyl from the mat. Replace with your second color and cut out the name.
Step 6
Cut each part of your design away from the vinyl roll and use your weeder tool to remove the negative material surrounding the initial and name. Now, all that is left on the white carrier paper should be the initial and name.
Step 7
Cut a piece of transfer tape large enough to fit over the initial. Peel off the backer paper, place the tape (sticky-side down) over the vinyl and burnish. Gently peel back the transfer tape. The vinyl initial should be transferred to the tape.
Step 8
Place the transfer tape with your initial onto your ornament and burnish.
Step 9
Gently peel back the transfer tape, leaving the initial on the ornament.
Step 10
Repeat Steps 7-10 to transfer the name, centered, over the initial.
Step 11
Cut a piece of ribbon about 4" long. Thread it through the loop on the top of the ornament and cut a "V" notch in both ends to prevent fraying.
