What are Easter Tokens?

Normally inside plastic easter eggs, you might find stickers, candy, small toys, or even coupons for special treats or privileges.

For our Easter egg hunt this year, we’re doing something special – instead of candy, we’re using Easter tokens!

Easter tokens fit perfectly into standard plastic eggs and are redeemable to the parent or adult guardians.

It’s a fun twist that adds excitement to the hunt while keeping things healthy and diverse. Plus, it’s a great way to encourage positive interactions among the kids and their families.

Easter tokens are a fantastic and enjoyable alternative to filling those plastic eggs with candy!

We are always looking for non-chocolate alternatives and thought Easter tokens were perfect to place in our eggs for Easter egg hunts since we can customize them to our family’s interests and can be made again and again with our Cricut.

How to Make Easter Tokens with a Cricut

STEP 1: Create token designs in Cricut Design Space

Open up Cricut Design Space.

Select the Shapes panel on the left.

Select “Circle“.

Draw a circle (doesn’t really matter what size, we will resize it later).

Go to the offset panel and add an offset to create an “outer circle”.

Select the layers and go to the Operation panel and change the colour to white to make it easier to see the text when we add it.

Add text. I used the font called Print Clearly.

Resize the text layer so it fits inside the circles.

Align the text by selecting both Align > Center Horizontally and Align > Center Vertically.

Select all of the layers. Attach the layers to create a group.

Rename the group for better organization.

Duplicate the token to make many more. If you are using the Cricut chipboard and your circles are 1.5″, you will be able to fit 36 of them on a sheet.

Change the text on the tokens using the list below.

Re-center the text and double-check that all the text layers are on set to “draw” and not “basic cut”.

STEP 2: Prepare the mat

Place your cardstock or chipboard on your mat.

If you are using cardstock (Explore and Maker machines), use the Stand Grip mat and the fine point blade.

If you are using Chipboard (only for Maker machines), use the Strong Grip mat and the knife blade.

*Note that cutting it out on chipboard will take between 1-2 hours as it needs 12 passes.

If you are using Chipboard, be sure to follow the instructions from the Cricut cut screen and move your rollers all the way to the right as well as using painter’s tape to tape the chipboard to the mat before cutting.

STEP 3: Cut out the tokens and fill the eggs

Remove the painter’s tape and the tokens should pop off pretty easily.

Fill your easter eggs with them and enjoy!
