Penguin Gift Tag/Ornament

This week’s free images in Design Space are from JGoode Designs – Penguins. I just love these print then cut penguins, and I used one a couple of years ago to make gift tags for my son’s class that could be used as ornaments. These images are free to cut until next Thursday (1/3/19) and are not included in the Cricut Access subscription. There are several different themes. You could make some tags for Valentine’s treats, or even get a head start on Christmas tags for next year!

The file I created is here, or you can follow the steps below to create the project yourself.

Supplies I used:

To create the back of the tag, I took the penguin image and duplicated it. Note that this is already a print then cut image, and so it comes into Design Space already flattened.

Then, I clicked on the color dot, which has a red line through it because it’s a multi-colored print then cut image. I changed the color to white.

Next, I changed the image from print then cut to cut.

I flipped the image horizontally, so that it would match up when glued to the back of the printed tag.

I attached a tiny circle for the twine to go through at the same time I attached the text.

Here’s more information on attaching written text.

If I were making a bunch of these, I would make the backs in one file, and then use a separate file for the fronts. I could make the copies in the project copies box on the prepare screen for the fronts.

I adjusted the image position on the second mat so that I could just flip the mat around to cut the back piece.

I used my Mega Runner to put adhesive on the back of the tag back.

Before sticking the pieces together, I put the twine through the small hole in the back.

The tag could go around a small gift or candy bar. Here is the file: https://design.cricut.com/#/design/49640462
Just detach the written text and click on it to customize it.

The font I used is Cricut Sans, which should be free for everyone.

There is another tag project with these penguins in the Ready to Make projects in Design Space.

Happy crafting!
