silver glitter snowflake christmas ornament

Use your Cricut® machine to handmake ornaments for your Christmas tree this year! Personalize each ornament with a Christmas icon or a simple sentiment, like a snowflake added to this Christmas ornament.
Step 1

First, find a snowflake you like in the Cricut® Design Space™ image gallery.

Step 2

Size the design to fit the front of your ornament, if needed, and then click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner. Click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen.

Step 3

Place your vinyl, grid-side down, onto your cutting mat and load it into your Cricut® machine. Select ‘Vinyl’ as your material and follow the prompts to cut out your design. Once the machine has finished cutting, gently peel the vinyl away from your mat.

Step 4

Use scissors cut around your design, removing it from the vinyl roll. Next, use your weeder tool to peel away the remaining negative space surrounding the initial and name. When you’re done, only the design itself should be left on the backer paper.

Step 5

Cut a piece of transfer tape that’s just a bit larger than the design. Peel away the tape’s backer paper and place the tape, sticky-side down, over your design. Burnish the vinyl so that it’s completely stuck to the tape.

Step 6

Now, gently peel the white backer paper from the cut-out design, which now should be stuck to the transfer tape.

Step 7

Hold the transfer tape with the design over the ornament to determine where you’d like it placed; then press it onto the surface. Burnish the vinyl once more to make sure it’s completely stuck to the surface and gently peel away the transfer tape, leaving the vinyl transferred to your surface.
TIP: To hang from your tree, tie ribbon onto the loop at the top of your ornament or use an ornament hanger.
