Christmas Tags using the Cricut Mini

We thought it would be fun to create a couple tags using the Cricut Mini. The Cricut has so many cartridges and options but we used the basic shapes that came free with the machine. We discovered the machine is easy for kids to use. They are able to visually see where the shape will be cut by reading the grid on the screen and on the mat.

For the first tag we cut out the first two shapes. The snowflake we cut out with a punch.

I really wanted to redo some, and secretly did alter some when they were not dry yet. She had fun and thought they were wonderful so that is all that mattered!

The second tag is just as easy. Again we used the basic shapes that came with the mini.

Each layer was glued together one at a time. We used a Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole in the corner then threaded through red and white Baker’s Twine

While we enjoyed the use of the Cricut Mini we could not understand why the top row was never fully cut. Each shape was left with 1/2″ uncut which meant we were never able to use that row. It must be some sort of flaw. We inserted all the shapes the same way and only that row had a problem. Any ideas?
