Adorn your Christmas Gifts with these wonderful hand drawn Christmas stickers!
I have been wanting to make sticker gift tags for a while and Christmas was the perfect excuse to finally make them. I like the idea of drawing my own, and my daughter is really artistic, so we drew some Christmas pictures and turned them into Christmas stickers for you. Hers are hand drawn and colored then scanned into the computer. Mine were hand sketched, then redrawn and colored in Illustrator. It was a lot of fun trying this out and I hope you like using them for your Christmas gifts.

Material needed to make Christmas Stickers

Download, unzip, and upload your file into Cricut Design Space. When you get to this screen, choose the complex option at the bottom and click continue.
The next screen is where you can clean up a PNG image for cutting. You don’t have to do anything with this file the way it is. So click continue at the bottom.
When you get to the next screen, you can choose a print then cut image, or a cut only image. Choose the one on the left, print then cut. Select Save .
Now select the PNG Christmas Sticker image and click insert image to place it onto your canvas.
It’s going to import a little large. You want to resize it to have the length be no longer than 9.25″. You can’t print then cut anything larger than that. The width will automatically change to keep it proportionate.
Then select make it and send it to your printer. Pay attention to how your printer feeds paper so you know which way to face the top of your sticker paper. It’s best to do a test print so you know everything is working properly before you print on your sticker paper.
The printer I have is a Brother MFC-J497DW which prints pretty well and doesn’t cost a lot of money for the ink.
Cutting Christmas Stickers
After printing your image on sticker paper, place it on your mat. Send it to your machine and choose your paper settings. If you are using a different brand than Cricut sticker paper, do some test cuts, so you know which setting works best with your paper. Then cut your stickers out. The Cricut uses the black box around the image to know exactly where to cut.
I think these turned out super cute. I would love to know if you end up using these for your Christmas gifts.
