How to Make Personalized Christmas Gift Bags with Cricut or Silhouette
In this video you will learn how quick and easy it is to make personalized Christmas gift bags with Cricut or another cutting machine and a heat press.
These are great for small presents, school party treat bags, teacher appreciation gifts or treat bag placeholders for your holiday table. These would also be a great project to make and sell with Cricut or Silhouette.

The bags are made with my “Claus Family” bundle which includes 9 family labels (mommy, daddy, mummy, etc) as well as the word “Claus” on it’s own if you want to make them with people’s names. (Buy the font)
The SVG, DXF & EPS files have layers to make them flexible. You can use or skip the shoes, flip the hat if it works better with a name in the opposite direction and more.
Of course these designs would be great for so many other things! Make family Christmas shirts, aprons, decorate stockings, mugs and more.
Position all the vinyl pieces then remove the red vinyl and set aside.
Use a heat press to adhere the green vinyl.
Place the red vinyl on the bag and cover with a teflon sheet before using the heat press so you don’t melt the green htv that you just applied.
It’s that simple to do!
