christmas acrylic ornament gift tags

Acrylic shape ornaments are perfect to use for tags on your gifts! They are easy to personalize with vinyl and texture paint.
Step 1

First, log into your Cricut® Design Space™ account and click ‘New Project’.

Step 2

Next click on the ‘Text’ icon at the left side of your screen. Type the initial, monogram or name for your ornament then choose your font. Size to fit as desired on your ornament.

Step 3

If cutting from two different colors, assign colors to each piece of your design so your machine knows when to prompt you to change the vinyl on the cutting mat.

Step 4

Now, click ‘Make It’ in the upper right corner, and then click ‘Continue’ in the lower right corner of your screen.

Step 5

Place your sheet of 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. Repeat for your second vinyl color.

Step 6

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

Step 7

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 the cut-out design. Burnish the vinyl so that it’s completely stuck to the tape.

Step 8

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

Step 9

Hold the transfer tape with the design over your ornament to determine where you’d like to place it. Make sure it is centered and straight; then press it onto your ornament. Burnish the vinyl once more to make sure it’s completely stuck to the ornament, and gently peel away the transfer tape. Your design has now been transferred to your ornament.

Step 10

Repeat Steps 6-8 for additional layers.
TIP: Add dots or a few swipes of texture paint to the back. You can even use painter’s tape to mask off parts of the ornament, then paint the rest. Let dry.

Step 11

Use ribbon to attach the tags to gifts.
