Create personalised stickers to seal your the envelopes of your Christmas cards in style using your Cricut machine's print and cut feature.
You could even add something personal to them to make them even more special.
YOU WILL NEED:
-Home printer (literally a printer that can print and connect to the device you are using)
FIND MY STICKER PROJECT HERE:
First, open up my project by opening the link above. You can add details to the stickers by flattening any new layers onto the stickers.
Next click ‘make it’, you will see that you design has been placed inside a lined black box, this black box will be printed and is what the sensors on your machine read so that it knows exactly where to cut.
Select your machine as usual then click print, this will open up the print screen, here you have the option to add or remove bleed, this puts a margin around each sticker.
You can also turn on system dialogue, this will allow you to access your printers’ settings, you can then change any settings for optimal print quality.
Next load your printer with printable material, check your printer as to whether this needs to be loaded face up or face down depending on how your printer feeds the paper. Press print.
Once printed, Put the printed sheet onto the mat, lining it up with the top left-hand corner.
Select the material you would like to cut; this is where you tell the machine to make stickers rather than cutting all the way through a material. Choose the setting for the type of printable material you are using, I like to use the washi sheets setting or the printable vinyl setting. Then load the mat into the machine, the machine will use its sensors to read the black lines before cutting.
Once read the machine will start cutting your stickers.
Once cut the only thing left to do is peel off your stickers and stick them to the back of your envelopes for extra festive cheer!
