Special Delivery Christmas Tag - Design Space Write and Cut File

This Special Delivery Christmas gift tag was designed in Cricut Design Space to utilize the drawing/writing feature for the Cricut Explore. Everything is written by the Explore and the tag shape is the only thing that is cut out. I used a slew of different writing style Cricut fonts, so if you download the file you will need the subscription to cut it. Otherwise, it will charge an insane amount because of all the different fonts I used.

The tag measures 3.25" X 5". It took about 15 minutes for it to write and cut. The writing on my tag would have looked better if I had pens that did not bleed, but those were the only pens I had in the colors needed.

Pretty Paper Saver aka Window Mosaic Grid - Design Space File

Have you ever had a pretty piece of paper that had a scene or image that was too pretty to cut up? Well, I have designed a Design Space file using all free basic shapes that will showcase and make it the focal point of the card. I call it the Pretty Paper Saver aka Window Mosaic Grid. The file will slice the paper into 1"x1" squares that does not waste any of the pretty paper. You then place those 1'"x1" squares into the grid in order like a puzzle. This is a very verstile file that can be used in many different ways. My examples above show it using a pretty piece of paper that the image is the focal point, and the other is using all scrap pieces of paper and make a patch work grid.

Witch Legs and Broom Halloween Banner - Design Space File

This file was designed using all Cricut images that are included in the Cricut Access subscription. Pennant size for the witch legs are 10 3/4 inches tall. The slits on the pennants are sized for 5/8 inch ribbon. If you resize the image the slits will no longer be sized for 5/8 inch wide ribbon. The shoes are meant to be pop dotted from the base to give added dimension. The skirt would look cute in a nice Halloween pattern.

Corset Pocket Invitation Card with Tag - Design Space File

I designed this lace up corset pocket invite card with tag using all Cricut images and basic shapes. If you have the subscription you will be able to cut the Design Space file below. This pocket card would be great for a wedding or bachelorette invitation. Event details can be added to the pull out tag.

My version is really shimmery as I used a lot of shimmer cardstock. The W on my tag was written by the Explore using Ranger Emboss It Pens, then I sprinkled Snow white embossing powder and heat set it. The front piece is dry embossed with the Cuttlebug embossing folder Textile. I laced up the front of the corset BEFORE attaching the front to the back.

More on the embossing pens. They fit into the Explore without needing an adapter. They are the same size as the Cricut brand pens. I'm guessing the same manufacture makes both. The ink stays wet for at least 5 minutes, as these embossing pens saturate the paper well.

Fuzzy Sock Cupcake Gifts - Cricut

**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.**

Each holiday season I make fuzzy sock cupcakes for the residents at the local nursing home. I like to buy the spa socks from the Dollar Tree. I usually get the non-skid socks. They come in a variety of colors.

What You Will Need:

I use my Cricut to cut out the cupcake wrappers. The wrapper should be sized to around 8 inches for the width. When resizing the wrapper, make sure the lock for ratio is locked.

You can download the Design Space file for the cupcake wrapper and tag that I used by Clicking Here to Download. You will need the Cricut Access subscription or the cartridges for the images I used in order to cut.

To make the socks into a cupcake you lay the 2 socks on top of each other, laid out. Then you roll the socks starting at the toe end making sure that each layer is 1/4 inch lower than the previous layer until you get to the other end of the sock. Then take a rubber band or hair tie and put it over the now rolled up socks. This will keep the socks rolled up. Then you gently pull the center of the roll, where the toes of the socks are. This will make a like a spiral effect, that resembles icing swirls.

Put the sock cupcake in the cupcake wrapper, and then fluff the socks some more to make sure to fill the wrapper. You can add a Pom Pom to the top to serve as a cherry on top. I put my sock cupcakes in cellophane bags and tie them closed with ribbon and a tag.

These would make great gifts or party favors.

Split Mosaic Card - Cricut Design Space File

Have you ever had a piece of patterned paper that you didn't want to cut up the pretty image, and make the image your focal point of the card, but didn't want it to look flat and plain? I have designed a Design Space file that will add some visual appeal to those types of patterned papers.

The Design Space file is created using all free basic shapes, so no subscription required to cut the file. The file contains just the card front, which is the matting layer and the sliced rectangle layer.

Linking Pumpkin Garland / Banner - Cricut Design Space File

This pumpkin garland/banner was inspired by a Martha Stewart punch. It was designed using all FREE Cricut Access images, so no subscription required to cut it. Each piece connects into the next piece, causing a linking effect. You can add more of the middle pumpkin bases to get a longer banner. The pumpkins on each end have a hole for ribbon or baker's twine, that way it can be hung up. You can resize the images to make a larger garland/banner.

The word "BOO!" is NOT included in the Design Space file.
