This Let it, Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow Christmas ornament is so easy to make and your little ones will love these snow-filled ornaments!
Hello, Kenarry readers! I’m Pam from The Birch Cottage, and I’m back again this month sharing with you a Christmas ornament idea for use with your Cricut cutting machine. When you see how cute these Let It Snow Christmas Ornaments are you’re gonna want to make several!
How to Make a Let It Snow Christmas Ornament with your Cricut
If you have a Cricut cutting machine, then you’re probably familiar with Cricut Design Space (the Cricut design software) and the Library of images and projects. Some of these images and projects are free, but some are only available to Access members.
I highly recommend the Access membership. You can read my blog post that tells you everything you need to know about Cricut Access here. This will, hopefully, help you to determine if you really need Access. I hope you find it helpful!
What is a Shared Project File?
This project idea uses a shared project file in Cricut Design Space. Maybe you’re not familiar with shared project files? Well, they are exactly what they sound like, project files that are shared.
I created a design using images, shapes, and texts found in Cricut Design Space. Once I had everything designed just the way I wanted it, I saved it, and then I made the project public so it could be shared with you and anyone else who uses Design Space.
So basically I did all the design work for you. It’s ready for you to use, edit and save. You can read more about shared project files here.
