Snowflake Gift Bag

1 Make the drawstring bag from cotton or canvas fabric.

2 Connect the Cricut Explore Air™ to the pc/laptop/Mac/iPad/iPhone and log on to your Design Space™ account. From the ‘Christmas’ category in the Make It Now Projects, search for and select the ‘Snowflake Gift Bag’.

Steps

3 Click ‘Customise’ to resize the project or ‘Make It Now’ to create it as designed. This project cuts eight snowflakes each measuring approximately 2.5” x 2.5”. Resize the image as required by first highlighting the image and then dragging the corner point. The size appears in a black text box as the image is altered.

Steps 3

4 Cut the images from cardstock. You can move the position of the images on the preview mat to give more space around them so that they are easier to use as a stencil.

5 Carefully remove the images from the cutting mat. Carefully cut in between the snowflakes to create the stencils.

6 Place a waste piece of card inside the gift bag. Lay the stencil in position on the bag and paint through the stencil. Carefully remove the stencil and allow the paint to dry. The card insert prevents the paint bleeding through the fabric layers.

7 Tie the snowflake on to the bag’s string as an embellishment. You can also write the recipient’s name on the tag.
