Make gift-giving even more fun with these unique Cricut acrylic gift tags.
So many gift tags look the same, But, you can add a personal touch to your presents with these Cricut acrylic gift tags. They are perfect for any holiday or occasion.
One great thing about making your own tags with a Cricut machine and Cricut Design space is that you can use different colors on your tags to match whatever wrapping paper you are using.
If you are using plain wrapping paper, like black or white paper, then these acrylic gift tags will add a bit of decoration and make your gift feel fancy.
How do you make homemade gift tags?
Anyone you are giving a gift to, including co-workers, friends, grandparents, and really any family member, will love a present from you with a homemade gift tag. It gives your present a personal touch and shows you care.
Plus, making homemade gift tags is actually a lot easier than you think. There are many different ways you can do it. My favorite way is with a cutting machine like the Cricut or Silhouette machines.
These machines do precision cutting which gives your homemade gift tag a high quality look, like you bought it at a store.
How do I make gift labels on Cricut?
Who doesn’t love making Cricut crafts? I know I do.
To make gift labels with a Cricut machine, I recommend using an SVG file. These are vector images so you can change the size and color of the graphic easily without ruining the quality.
First, you either need to make an SVG file or find one that you can use. I’ve included a free one in this blog post which you can get when you fill in the form below. Simply enter your name and email address, and I will send you an email with the download file.
Once you have downloaded your SVG file, you can upload it into Cricut Design space to customize it, change colors, and adjust the size.
Then, cut out your final design and put it all together. I’ve included instructions at the end of this blog post on how to make these exact gift tags you see in the picture.
How do you make reusable gift tags?
Most gift tags end up in the garbage because they can’t be re-used. This is really sad, especially when it’s a pretty one. Is it possible to make reusable gift tags instead?
Acrylic gift tags can be reused over and over again as they are made of more durable materials.
What supplies do I need to make this Cricut acrylic gift tag?
For this project, you only need 4 supplies and 4 tools. If you don’t have everything you need, you should be able to find what you’re missing at your local craft store.
Target may even have what you need. I love Target’s craft section. You might be surprised at how much they have available.
For materials, you will need:
- Permanent vinyl
- Piece of transfer tape
- Acrylic tags
- 5⁄8” or 7⁄8” ribbon or tulle of choice
And the tools you will need are:
- Green Cricut cutting mat
- Weeding tool
- Scraper tool
- Cricut machine
What Cricut Vinyl To Use On Acrylic
I get asked a lot what kind of vinyl should be used on acrylic, and the best answer is permanent, adhesive vinyl. This kind of vinyl is durable, long-lasting, and looks really nice.
I wouldn’t recommend using iron-on vinyl or heat transfer vinyl as they will not last as long with the acrylic.
Can Cricut Cut Through Acrylic?
Many Cricut machines, like the Cricut Maker, will cut acrylic. But not all of them will. The Cricut Explore Air and the Cricut Joy are two Cricut machines that you can’t use to cut acrylic.
Make sure you look at the manual that came with your Cricut machine before you attempt to cut acrylic.
I find it much easier to just buy the pre-cut acrylic gift tags. You can find them here on Etsy for a really good price and makes this DIY project much simpler.
How do you stick gift tags on presents?
You can use your handmade gift tags for your entire family and their presents. But how do you stick the gift tags to the actual presents? Here are some ideas.
If you are wrapping presents in a box, then you can attach your gift tag to some ribbon. Wrap it around the box, and then tie a bow to make sure your gift tag doesn’t fall off the ribbon.
If you are using a gift bag to wrap things like a bottle of wine, then you can attach your gift tag to the ribbon handles of the bag.
If you are making a gift basket, you can attach your gift tag to the handles. You might also like to wrap your basket once it is made into plastic. Then, you can tie the plastic together at the top with your gift tag and some ribbon.
