Easy Santa Cam Ornament

I’m not saying that these Cricut ornaments are going to somehow stop the kids from acting up all holiday season. That’s just silly.

But the idea that this Santa Cam ornament is connected to the North Pole and that Santa’s got elves watching the presents, well, maybe this year, the kids won’t be “accidentally” opening any gifts early this year. Ha!

And, if it does work out, what a fun heirloom ornament that I can use over and over. So fun.

How to Make Easy Santa Cam Ornament

For Cutting Machines

Download and unzip your files then load the Santa cam ornament cut file into Cricut Design Space or Silhouette Studio.

The first thing after that is to, set your cutting machine to your cardstock, load the machine, and cut out your Santa Cam ornament Pieces.

Secondly, you are going to weed the vinyl pieces and, using the transfer tape, place the tape over your weeded vinyl and use your squeegee to remove the paper backing from the words first.

Transfer the vinyl to your round paper tag, and after that repeat with the lens.

Then just attach the ribbon and put your Santa cam ornament onto the tree or pop them onto gifts as a funny Christmas gift tag!

Download and unzip the files, in addition to the next steps. Print the ornament on red card stock paper or whatever color you like (for example, feel free to personalize this to your preferred colors, really) and cut around the circle. And finally, use a hole punch to punch the hole.

Then it’s time for a ribbon and the tree!
