1. Hallmark – Inspired Christmas Blanket Gift

This is my Hallmark Christmas movie watching blanket free svg cut file for Cricut.

Last year I created several Hallmark blankets for family members and even received requests for more this year! So I thought it might be good to do a tutorial on this, which is the first one featured in the video below!

For this last-minute gift, I purchased a cozy fleece blanket and iron-on glitter vinyl. I used my Cricut machine to cut out my design along with my Easypress to create this blanket in minutes! Watch the video, 6-Last Minute Gift Ideas with Your Cricut Here

4. Starbucks Lover Ornament Gift

This may be my favorite craft this Christmas – Handmade Coffee Ornaments! These ornaments are perfect for coffee lovers and are much easier to make than you might think. You will need some lightweight spackle, an espresso cup, paper straw, gorilla glue, piping bag, and tip plus baker’s twine to make this.

For the Starbucks sticker, I used an image from Google and printable vinyl for the decal on the coffee cup.

  1. Abbi,
    Where did you purchase the coffee mug you used for the hallmark mug? Also, how long does the vinyl last, and can it be microwaved and is it dishwasher safe ?

    1. I purchased my mug from Michaels craft stores. I would only hand wash the mugs. If you wash my hand they should last many months or longer. 🙂

  2. Hi Abby,
    Which Circut model did you use? I would like to buy a Cricut, but I am overwhelmed by the models or styles.
    Thank you for your help.
