Use the Print & Cut feature on your Silhouette to make adorable gift cards for any occasion, like these Spook-tacular Halloween gift tags!
For someone who isn’t a huge Halloween fan I’ve definitely gotten into the spirit lately. And it’s been all spiders and vinyl and pumpkins, OH MY!
We’re not really celebrating this year but we do have some people close to us that I want to do something special for. Our toddler gets physical, occupational, and speech therapy each week and our therapists are all AH-MAZING! Which is why we’re giving them a little treat this year, topped with these spook-tacular Halloween gift tags!
One thing I love about my Silhouette is that it makes me look much craftier than I feel. And I can make the simplest project and have so many people comment on it, which is always cool. Sometimes I go super simple and other times I go all out complicated, but I always end up loving the result no matter what.
These Spook-tacular Halloween gift tags are definitely more simple, but no less fabulous. And they’re really easy to make, if you know how to print and cut. But if you don’t….I’ve made a video just for you that’ll walk you through the steps to set it up in LESS THAN FIVE MINUTES!
Make your own spook-tacular Halloween gift tags with the Print + Cut Silhouette feature!
- Plain Cardstock (8.5 x11)
- Printer + Ink, this is the one I use!
- Silhouette Machine or Cricut
- Jute or Ribbon
+ Download the free cut file and open it up in your Silhouette software
+ Under the PAGE SETUP TAB click paper size > letter. Then turn on the print border and cut border.
+ Under the PAGE SETUP TAB click REGISTRATION MARKS. Click style > type 1.
+ Move the LENGTH and INSET tabs all the way to the left and the THICKNESS tab all the way to the right. Then click PRINT.
+ Once you print your design on your piece of paper, put it on your Silhouette mat and load it into your machine.
+ Go to SEND. Make sure you have the correct paper type and blade type selected. Also make sure that the only part of your design that is highlighted is around the outside. If you’ve checked all of that, hit CUT!
+ I then cut the top of my sandwich ziploc bags, put candy in them, and tied it shut with string and added the Halloween gift tags!
If you’re not a huge fan of reading instructions, here’s a video that’ll teach you to set up your machine to print + cut in less than 5 minutes!
My toddler is only two but I feel like it’s never too early to start showing appreciation and how to DIY his own gifts. Though…I’ll admit I didn’t have him help me bag everything up because of his milk allergy. But it still counts when he gives the candy to his therapists next week, right? 😉
If you’re on the hunt for other fun (maybe last minute?) Halloween projects, I’ve got a few good ones that will take 20 minutes or less to do!
