Note: Search these codes in the Cricut store and they will show up. Be sure to check your layers panel for these designs and follow the steps below.
Creating your Base.
Creating your base is simple. You will need the Scallop Base to start this. The size of this will depend on the size of your Easter Goodie Bag. I believe mine was about 3 inches wide. With the Scallop Base, you will only need the middle layer (unless you want to use the top decorative layer). Once you have the correct size, duplicate this layer. You will need to layer the left side and right side a little to create the base. Example below.
Time to Weld
Welding images together is very easy. All you have to do is get them in the correct position like you did above, and then you weld them. This makes those two layers one. We need this to happen so we create a tag that can be folded. To weld images together you need to look to your Layers Panel. Example below.
Scoring and Attach
Now that your two images are welded together you want to add a score line. The score line will make it east to fold the tag in half. (I changed my color to purple to make the score line more visible) You want to place it right in the middle of your tag. You can do this by selecting the tag and scoreline, going to your align options at the top and align them center. When they are aligned center you want to attach them in your layers panel. This groups the tag and score line so when you go to cut the tag, your scoreline stays in place. Example below.
Rotate your Tag and begin to Build.
Now you want to rotate your tag and begin to build. Put all your images together and figure out your placement before you cut. This will give you the idea of how you want everything to look so when you do use your Cricut to cut you know how you want everything. This part you don’t have to attach. It’s all going to be different pieces and you are going to glue it all together. I also added a circle to my tag. My circle was cut in pink (yellow in an example below) card stock. I then layered everything on top of that. Example below.
Time to Cut and Assemble.
If you haven’t used a Cricut before, this all won’t cut at the same time. Your Cricut will cut pieces based on the color and groups. All the purple will cut together, blues cut together, and so on. Once you have all your pieces cut you just have to assemble and out your goodie bags together. Now you have your DIY Easter Goodie Bags with your Cricut.
These DIY Easter Goodie Bags with your Cricut were so fun to make. If you have a Cricut your can make this exact tag. If you have a silhouette you could make one similar to this. The designs that I used were in the Cricut Access Store.
