Cricut Design Space Star: Wood Leaf Gift Tags


wood leaf gift tags

Today I’m sharing a quick and easy project using the Cricut Explore™ (affiliate link) for the Design Space Star Challenge. To make these wood leaf shapes, I scanned some leaves and them converted them into vector shapes in Illustrator. Then I saved it as an SVG file and brought it into the Cricut Design Space where I added the names that are written on the tags. Each leaf has a couple of small holes near the stem so that string or ribbon can be threaded through to attach the tags to the gifts. I used a thin balsa wood veneer from the craft store, but these would be just as lovely in paper or cardstock!

Because I scanned real leaves, the shapes are organic and lovely. You can grab the free SVG file here: Autumn Leaves Gift Tags
