Easy Christmas Gift Idea with Cricut

Each Christmas season I like to come up with a simple gift idea that I can use for my kids teachers, a few of my friends and close neighbors. Today I am going to share with you my Easy Christmas Gift Idea that I am going to be giving this year! A few months ago, I was driving by a little cake shop near me and had this simple idea pop in my head – BUNDT cakes! And that is what I’m rolling with this year!

I personally love the little mini bundt cakes! But, if you were gifting this idea to a group or family, I’d go with a normal sized bundt cake. When you purchase the little bundt cakes they come in cute little clear containers and I didn’t want to repackage them. So, I jumped into my Cricut Design Space to see what they had in there to help embellish the gifts.

I found a couple different ideas I liked and meshed them into this fun design! The tag is a simple DIY that you can cut with your Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker! Then you can attach the tag to any kind of bundt cake — big or small!

Then go ahead and load the black Cricut pen into your machine. It will write all the words, but BUNDT. That word will be cut out with the fine point blade.

You’ll need a white, green and then either brown, tan or gray 12×12 cardstock.

Then go ahead and assemble the gift tag.

I used a glue stick to attach the reindeer to the white cardstock and then the white tag to the green background tag. I made a couple variations of the reindeer – so try it brown, tan and gray! They all have a fun look!

Did you know Cricut Design space has TONS of fun cardstock bow tutorials? I am literally blown away with all the fun bows! I spent a few minutes the other day playing around with them and here are some of my favorites:

Silver Glitter Gift Bow

Tiny Christmas Bows

Metallic Bow Gift

Loop Bow Gift Topper

Double Bow Gift Topper

Next up for the gift prep, make the bow for the top of the Bundt Cake!

I chose and modified one of their bows. I took off the side cuts and added a 2″ circle to match the top of the bundt cake container. If you’re putting your bundt cake in a different container then you may not need the circle or you may need to adjust the circle size. If that’s the case, then you click through the design space file blow, click CUSTOMIZE and make those changes.

Before attaching the bow to the container I quickly used some twine and hot glue to attach the tag. 

When I designed the tag, I didn’t include a precut hole because I assumed some wouldn’t be attaching it by a twine. So, I just quickly punched one with a hole punch. 

Then I tied a cute twine to my tag and used hot glue to attach it to the red circle on top of the bundt cake container.
