Welcome to the Printable Cuttable Creatables blog, it’s Ellen here sharing Valentine’s Day DIY Gift Bags featuring some lovely SVG files from PCC (Cute Lemon & Lime, Cute Strawberry, Cute Autumn Acorns, and the Baby Blocks Capital Alphabet Set).
I looked at some funny Valentine’s quotes on google for the images I wanted to use. Then I uploaded all the illustrations to Cricut Design Space. I deleted all the shapes I didn’t need, for example, the squares around the Baby Blocks Capital Alphabet Set.
Next, I selected the words “Zest”, “Berry” and “Nuts” and used the ‘align tool’ to align the bottom and space the words evenly (my Cricut Design Space is in Dutch, but I hope the picture still helps you out since the icons are the same).
When I was happy with the end results I let the machine do the work and cut every piece I needed.
To bring the idea into reality, prepare the supplies a bit too. Here are my tips for heat transfer.
- In this case, I used small bags. It is always a good idea to iron your fabrics before applying the HTV. This will keep your HTV from wrinkling, but it’s also handy to center all the artwork on the fabric.
- It’s always helpful to use a clothes roller to get rid of all the little bits of dust and hair (definitely a must if you have furry fluffs running around the house).
- As a final tip, don’t forget to use baking paper between your work and the heat press. Otherwise, it’s possible your HTV may stick onto your heat press. This is especially useful for illustrations with many layers like here.
The end results are simply stunning and super cute!!
I bought some heart-shaped cookies that fit in these bags. They will be given away on Valentine’s Day to some family members.
These little bags are perfect to make someone’s day!
All the files come with more images than you see here on the blog, be sure to check them out, to see which is your favorite.
If you love it as much as I do, then there is a big fruit set too; the “Cute Summer Fruit SVG Files Collection” in the PCC shop. You can see oranges, cherries, melons, bananas,… and a lot more in the set.
I still have a few quotes I love: You are very a-PEELING, I love you CHERRY much, you hold the KIWI to my heart,… I really can keep going here and cannot wait to see what you make!
What is your favorite bag? And which fruit and quote would you like to use? I’m super curious, please let me know below!
