CricutMaker Snowflake Design

CricutMaker Snowflake Requirements:

- You can use any Light Card Stock for the envelope part, I like the textured kind of paper.

- Poster card stock for the inside pull-out tab, it needs to be thicker than the outside enveople.

- Scoring Tool (sold separately from CricutMaker machine).

- Glue (hot glue recommended for fast drying time).

Click the green "CLOSE" button on the bottom right to see the "Make it" button! It's hidden behind the notification at the bottom of the screen. The cost is free so you should be able to make it immediately.


- Link to my Design (tips included below):


I've been working on these gift card holders and I think I almost have enough for the rest of the year! I use them during the holidays and also at the end of the school year - when sometimes the parents coordinate and give the teacher a gift card tree. I just pop in a gift card based on what the teacher likes and my girls bring it to school to hang on the tree. It doesn't take long to make these but it's always easier to just grab one during the busy seasons. I try to keep my designs to 2 different card stocks to keep it simple.


So far, I've been making mostly boxes and cards. I make these because it's what I usually need every month. Everything I make is something I used frequently. If you have something that you use to make frequently with you Cricut, please share below!


Below is a picture of how the insert can easily be pulled out for quick access to the gift card.


The snowflake gift card design allows for easy access by pulling it out.
Gift card pulls out of the envelope.


Tips:

- Use a hot glue gun to put together this fast.

- Remember to use light card stock for the envelope part.

- Remember to use poster card stock for the pull out part - this helps keep it's shape.

- Fold inwards on the scored side to make a clean fold.

- Fold the bottom of the envelop part on the OUTSIDE. This will make sliding the pull-out part easy in and out.

- Remember when cutting to switch the card stock when you make the inside versus the outside!
