Only 2 days until Christmas, and I expect you’re pretty busy. So, here’s a Free File that may come in Handy for last minute Christmas Projects, Decorations or Gift Tags.
It’s a split Christmas Bauble Design which you can cut and use as you would any split design.
The version pictured above is a super quick way to use the file for the Time poor among us. Simply cut from Vinyl as a sticker label, and add a name in the space (I also cut the name from the same vinyl, but you could even hand write it.) I used the negative star cut outs and a few extra stars to embellish it some more. This only took me a couple of minutes.
If you have an extra time to spare for crafting, here’s how to use it to personalize the Bauble and make it in to an all in one cut like this which can be either layered with a background or not.
- Type out a name. I chose Arial Bold which is a plain Sans Serif Font. I moved the letters closer to each other using the Character spacing tools in the Text Style Window.
- Drag the Name Text box over the negative space between bauble halves, dragging the text box to fit, so the width aligns with the width of the bauble and the depth is slightly overlapping the bauble, as in the image.
- Select it all, Right Click and Select Weld.
- Optional: Drag the contrast background behind bauble to ensure a correct fit, then cut separately from contrast material.
- Optional: Cut the Bauble Hanger from Contrast material if using.
- Layer and adhere all the parts together.
