Asterisk Gift wrapping with Cricut
04/12/2019 Karen Sydnor in Craft / No comments

Hey Crafty peeps! It’s that time of year again – Christmas!!

And right about now, you are probably scouring the stores in search of the perfect wrapping paper to wrap your gifts and packages in. Well, today, I am sharing with you a way to save money and elevate your gift wrapping techniques if you own a Cricut Maker or Cricut Explore (Air 1 or 2)

Along with your Cricut, you simply need the following supplies:

  1. Cardstock – red, yellow, forest green
  2. Glue Dots
  3. Sticker paper (Staples brand)
  4. Kraft paper
  5. Glitz glitter gel (Close to my heart brand)
  6. Scoring board (Martha Stewart)

Here are the instructions to make your Poinsettia flower and gift tags:

The first thing I did was create some Christmas tags in the Cricut Design Space app. I simply searched for a tag, added text (To: and From), changed the color to a diamond pattern, flattened all elements, printed it out on sticker paper and let the Cricut do the magic (cut them out). I used Staples brand paper, but you can use whatever brand you like.

Next, I searched for a Poinsettia flower in Design space and loved the Poinsettia pillow image in the 3D Floral Home Decor set. I resized the image and cut the petals using red and green cardstock. For the center part of the flower, I used yellow cardstock. I also cut out a circle so I could adhere the petals to it.

Once everything was cut, I used my Martha Stewart Scoring board to score down the center of each petal to give them a more realistic look. I assembled the flowers using Glue Dots and added the Close to My Heart Glitz Glitter Gel to give the Poinsettia some sparkle.

Finally, I wrapped the gift with some basic kraft paper, tied some twine around it, and added the Poinsettia and gift tag.

Isn’t it amazing? Think of packages of all sizes with these flowers under your tree. You can size them as big or small as you like.

I have provided the link for the project below:

Have fun making them and happy decorating and gift wrapping and gift giving friends this holiday season!
