Santa Gift Tag
First, you will need your printable gift tags. To get those, sign up for the newsletter in the box below and the tag file will be sent to your email address. Look for a box below with a picture of the file you want and add in your information. If you already get the newsletter, just add your information again as you will not be signed up for anything further. Once you add your information, just check your email to get the file. You can unzip the file and print it as many times as you would like. If you haven’t worked with zip files before, be sure to read more about them here.
Please note that these tags are for personal use only. You can contact me if you have any issues getting or using the file.
How to Use These North Pole Gift Tags
Now that you have your file, how do you use it? Unzip the file and you will find both a PDF and a PNG version of the file. I recommend using the PDF to cut but hand and the PNG to cut with your Cricut machine. Here are a few tips and tricks for both methods.
Cutting a Santa Gift Tag by Hand
- Print the PDF file onto a thick white cardstock using an inkjet printer. Be sure to choose best quality when printing to get a more professional look.
- Then use scissors or even a paper cutter to trim around each tag. I find that the paper cutter is great for the straight cuts then you can snip the angled corners with scissors at the end.
- Use a hole punch to put a hole in the top where indicated.
- I also like this method because I was able to leave some white space at the bottom of the tag to write in the child’s name. This is especially great if you have more than one child and don’t want the presents to get mixed up.
How to Make Gifts Tags with a Cricut
- Upload the PNG file to Cricut Design Space. You can see how to do that on a variety of devices here. Be sure to choose the print then cut option on the last screen of the upload process. NOTE: If you want the Cricut to cut the holes at the top, you will need to pick each hole during the process of removing the background.
- Once you have the file on your canvas in Design Space, you will want to make sure to size it to fit the print then cut dimensions. Make sure either a Maker or Explore machine is chosen and make your file less than 6.75 x 9.25 inches. You can do this by removing some of the gift tags with the slice feature or just making them smaller.
- Then click make it and follow the directions on your screen. You still send to your printer with Design Space. Remember to print on white cardstock and choose best quality as mentioned in the manual cutting instructions above.
- Once you have printed your tags, let the Cricut do the cutting for you!
- Then you can write the child’s name on the back of each tag before attaching it to the gift.
You can choose either of these methods for making a Santa gift tag this holiday season. I do find it easier to just trim this type of tag by hand especially with the size restrictions in Cricut Design Space. However, you can definitely choose what works best for you. Then just add these to your presents under the tree on Christmas Eve!
