How Do I DIY My Very Own Cricut Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder?
Now that you have all the necessary materials to make a Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder, here are my detailed instructions (and tips and tricks!) to make one of your very own. Keep on scrolling for the full details!
Begin by downloading my Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder SVG file – you can do this by logging onto your VIP Crafters Club dashboard and downloading the file. If you’re not yet a member, you can join here to gain full access to my SVG files or, you can download the individual file here.
Next, open up Cricut Design and click “New Project.”
After clicking on “New Project,” go ahead and click on “Upload Image,” followed by “Browse.”
Locate the Coffee Cup Gift Card Holder file and click it/select it.
In the lower right-hand corner of your screen, you will see an option to “Upload.” Click on it and the it will take you to another screen where you’ll see the file uploaded into the image database. Click on the file, followed by “Insert.”
To the right of the screen, you will see a list of “Groups.” Click the first group, which is the blank coffee cup.
Adjust the coffee cup measurements to your desired size. In the bottom right-hand corner, click “Weld.” Repeat this step with each group.
Click the coffee cup once more.
On the top right toolbar, you will see “Operation” and your color choice. Set the coffee cup to “Cut” and white.
Repeat this with the wording: make sure it is set to “Cut” and the color, black.
Finally, click the card holder. Set it to “Cut” and leave the color as is. So long as each group is set to a separate color, you won’t need to change it.
Time to cut out your gift card holder! Click on “Make It.”
Once you click on “Make It,” you will see 3 separate project cuts.
To start the cutting procedure, place a piece of white cardstock on a cutting mat. This will be for the coffee cup. Load the cutting mat into the Cricut and be sure to set its dial to “Cardstock.”
Next, press “Continue” on your machine and follow all of the on-screen prompts. Watch your Cricut do its magic and cut out the cardstock coffee cup!
Now, place black vinyl onto your cutting mat (this will be for the gift card holder’s wording) and load the mat into the Cricut. Set its dial to “Vinyl.”
Press “Continue” and follow the on-screen prompts. The wording will now cut out on the black vinyl.
Finally, place a piece of brown cardstock onto your cutting mat. The brown cardstock will be for the card holder portion of the greeting card. Load the mat into the Cricut and set its dial to “Cardstock.”
Press “Continue” and follow the on-screen prompts.
Use a hole puncher to make a hole at the top of the white coffee cup. Insert a gift card in the cuts made for the card.
For the outer portion of the card (brown cardstock), fold over length wise and fold the side tabs backwards and secure with tape or glue.
For a beautiful finishing touch, tie a ribbon through the hole.
Next, use weeding tools to weed out the letters in your newly-cut black vinyl.
Once the words are weeded out, place transfer on top of it and remove the white backing.
Place the transfer tape down on the brown cardstock and press down firmly. Gently pull of the transfer tape, leaving the black vinyl behind.
Insert the white portion of the gift card holder into the brown cardstock. It is now ready to be gifted!
