Cricut 2007812 Joy Tote, Assorted
About this deal
Like I said, the materials and tools to make your own gift bags are simple! You really just need a few sheets of paper, good craft glue, and a way to cut your paper. The Cricut Joy is the smallest of the three machines in the current Cricut product line-up, but don’t let its size fool you... For projects with wider images or materials that need a bit more cutting power, like leather and fabrics, you’ll make that magic with your full-size machine. Cricut Joy tools and accessories
Fold the bottom of your paper up so that the top of it aligns with the bottom of your flap – this fold will be about 4” tall. Make sure your sides are aligned to help create a nice, straight crease, then unfold. If your bag doesn’t have a flap, fold the bottom up so its height is just about equal to the height of the remaining top section. Cricut Mug Press - The Cricut Mug Press is a handy bit of kit for anyone who is interested in personalising drinkware and learning how sublimation works.

Unfold the flaps we just made and apply glue to the four outer triangles. Make sure you don’t apply any glue to the center portion underneath the flaps, as this is actually the inside of your bag, and you don’t want to glue the bottom to the inside! Fold the top section down, then add a thin line of glue where the bottom flap will overlap its edge. Fold up the lower flap and hold it in place until it sets. Next, let’s fold over our top flap. If your bag won’t have a flap, you can skip this step. Use your ruler to mark 2” down from the top edge at several points, then connect them with a straight line. Place the ruler’s edge on the line and fold the paper down. The bag is now 10” tall and 2” of the interior paper will show at the top. Add some glue under the flap’s side edges to help it lie flat. Draws any shape and writes in a variety of styles Cuts individual shapes up to 1.2 m (4 ft) long or makes repeated cuts up to 6 m (20 ft) long* Next, fold the top part of this bottom section down so its edge lands .25” below below the middle crease on the bottom of your bag.
On installation, this software becomes a start up guide taking you through every step of creating your first design with your new Cricut Joy. Push the two sides of that bottom section in toward each other along the diagonal fold lines. Flatten those sides against your work surface to create two triangles, one on the left side and one on the right side. They’re the same color as the bag’s outside. Make sure the triangles’ corners are sharp and then crease them with the scraper. TIP: When removing smaller pieces from your mat, it may help to use the spatula to gently lift them so they don’t tear.Go to Cricut Machine User Guides for the in-depth guides for setting up and working on your new Cricut Joy, this also includes multiple videos for getting you started and learning new things you can make with your Cricut Joy. Any item not in its original condition, is damaged or missing parts for reasons not due to our error Although it's considerably smaller (and cheaper) than its bigger siblings, the Circut Explore 3 and Cricut Maker 3, the Cricut Joy can still make short work of complex crafting projects. Making a handmade gift bag is really quite simple! All it takes is wrapping paper, glue, and scissors. You can follow my instructions to learn how!
There are so many easy crafts to use in place of a gift bag, especially if you have a cutting machine! You can adjust my wine bag design, my purse gift bag, or use any of my cute box projects. In this tutorial I'm going to show you three ways to make a cute DIY Gift Bag: one using wrapping paper, a simple bag cut on a Cricut, and a purse-shaped bag cut on a Cricut. Now fold the middle crease on both sides of your bag inward, and make sure all four edges of your bag are neatly creased and folded outward. When you’re done, your bottom and sides will be nice and square, and your bag will have the shape of a gift bag you’d buy from the store! Choose your materials. Select Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets or Infusible Ink Pens & Markers and a compatible Cricut blank. We need the Cricut to add Score Lines in the correct spots to fold the bag. My file includes them, but Design Space requires a few steps to get them perfect.Find the four rectangular strips, which we’ll glue together to make the handles. Apply glue along one of the short ends about 1.5” from the edge. Overlap the short edge of another rectangular strip on top of the glue to adhere the two pieces together, creating one long piece about 21.5” long. Repeat for the other rectangles and let dry. NOTE: If you’re using a word with a lowercase “i” or an unattached letter, be sure to remove and save all those pieces before discarding your scraps.
