Cricut Project Guide: 12 Days of Christmas

13 December 2022

Tis’ the season for Christmas making, wishes, and cheer. Whether you are making gifts, getting ready to deck the halls or creating your Christmas jumper, we have some project ideas for you to get you into the festive spirit.

These projects are part of our 12 Days of Christmas projects that we are sharing on Instagram.

Day one – Personalised Pet Christmas Stocking

Pet parents rejoice! Our fur babies need their own paw-fect stocking for all their bones and treats that Santa will be leaving them. Tara from @ourlayeredhome on Instagram personalised a stocking with iron-on material. She actually made the stocking herself cutting fabric on her Cricut Maker™ 3 with the rotary blade and FabricGrip™ Mat.

See the tutorial for how to make here.

Day two – glow up with a personalised cosmetic bag

Cosmetic bags are great gift ideas because they can be used in so many different ways. Whether the recipient loves makeup, is an artist, is still in school, or loves to make, a cosmetic bag can be the perfect solution tailored entirely to them.

Joy from @joy.margot on Instagram used our new glow in the dark iron on to create a beautiful bold design.

Day three – festive-themed bottle and tag

Laura from @florallaurauk on Instagram created this beautiful bottle for a handmade gin gift idea. You could use this bottle for many things like perfume, pressed cordial, and a drinks bottle for the Christmas dinner table.

Laura uses permanent vinyl to decorate the bottle and also creates a festive tag out of cardstock for extra embellishment.

Day six – Christmas Gift Tag

Every present needs a gift tag and your Cricut machine is a great way to make batch tags. You could make several with one sheet of card or add additional materials for more complex embellishments.

We shared on our stories three gift tags that will wow and catch any eye looking under the Christmas tree.
