This morning I was talking to my sister-in-law about how she is making Christmas ornaments for her adult kids this year. Christmas ornaments are always a perfect homemade gift to give each Christmas! And, who isn’t in the mood to do something crafty this time of year? I hope you enjoy today’s Galvanized Christmas Ornament and Gift Tag Tutorial.

Galvanized Christmas Ornament and Gift Tag Tutorial
Open the Cricut Design Studio and create a new project.
Upload your favorite Christmas elements clip art (or the above set) to the Cricut Design Studio.
Insert a text box and type your desired word/s. Select your favorite font. (For this project, we used Babette and Dear John.)
Arrange the text and images as desired.
Click and drag to select the elements for each ornament. Check the size of your design to the width and height of the ornaments. Adjust is needed to fit.
Cut the text and images from vinyl.
Weed the excess vinyl away and then use transfer tape to move the word to the ornament. Press firmly or swipe over the transfer tape with a scraper to make sure the vinyl adheres to the ornament. Pull the transfer tape away.
Cut a length of ribbon approximately 6 inches long. Thread the ribbon through the loop opening on the ornament and tie a knot in the ribbon for hanging. Trim any excess ribbon if needed.
Christmas Blessings Giveaway:
Christmas came quick this year!! At least it feels that way when everywhere you turn there are signs of Christmas all around, yet we haven’t even gotten to Thanksgiving yet. It seems the Christmas season starts earlier and earlier every year. It IS the most wonderful time of the year after all, so why not celebrate for as long as we can, right?!

I can’t believe we have been blessing families for TEN years!! We all love doing this and we look forward to it every year!
