Christmas Gift Tags using Cricut Draw
Personalize your Christmas gift tags this year with this free Cricut SVG file! Learn how to use the Cricut draw function to easily customize these gift tags.
No gift is complete with a gift tag. These Cricut gift tags are easily cut on the Cricut machine out of cardstock and really elevate your Christmas presents. Use the fonts that I’ve listed below or play around with your own to give a personalized gift giving experience!

HOW TO MAKE THE GIFT TAGS
If you’d rather watch a video on how to make it step by step, take a look at this video here (highly recommended!):
STEP 1: GET THE FREE SVG FILE
Get the free Christmas gift tag cut file from the Free Resource Library.
STEP 2: PREP FILE + CRICUT DRAW
Upload the file into Cricut Design Space.
You can cut them out as-is if you prefer to hand write the tags.
If you want to try out the Cricut Draw function, do the following.
Select the font you would like to use. I am using Europe Underground (free personal use / commercial licence) for the “To/From: Santa” and Better Caramel (free personal use / commercial licence) for the cursive name.
Resize and play with the fonts until you are satisfied with how they look.
Don’t forget to WELD your fonts together (per gift tag) so that Cricut will cut out words and not individual letters.
Select your text layers and go to “Linetype” and select “Draw” (instead of “Cut”). This let’s Cricut know that you want to draw these lines instead of cut them.
You will then need to take your font layer and ATTACH it to the gift tag you are using. This lets Cricut know WHERE you’d like to draw on.
STEP 2: CUT IT OUT
Follow the prompts to cut it out. I used the heavy cardstock setting on my Cricut Maker with more pressure.
It will draw first and then cut.
The cursive part is only outlined. I just coloured this in with my marker.
STEP 3: WEED YOUR DESIGN
Carefully weed your designs. It should be pretty easy to weed these but still be careful!
Beautiful! You did it!
