These Cricut Print then Cut Moving Box Labels will help you stay organized during the moving process! You can make them any size you want and color code each room!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.
If you’ve followed me for long you know that we’ve been in the moving process the last few weeks! These Print then Cut Moving Labels that I made with my Cricut Maker were seriously so great! I had each room assigned a color and then I could write what was put in each box. Then easily check mark if the box was Fragile or Heavy!! If you don’t have a colored printer, then you could totally make these black and white too!
CRICUT PRINT THEN CUT FEATURE
The Print then Cut Feature in Cricut Design Space allows you to take any design, print it and then cut around the design with your Cricut cutting machine. For those of you brand new to Print then Cut, check out this post I wrote about How to Use the Print then Cut Feature.
MOVING BOX LABELS
For these moving labels, I chose to make all my labels large. But, you can easily take my design and resize it to fit multiple labels on each page of sticker paper if you want. Here’s a tutorial on how to make them!
- Cricut Maker
- LightWeight Mat
- InkJet Colored Printer
- Cricut Sticker Paper
- Moving Labels Design Space File
Start by opening the Moving Labels Design Space File HERE!
I currently have each label grouped and flattened in the Design Space File. If you want to make any changes to the actual label, you will need to first unflatten the image.
If all you want to do is resize the labels, you don’t need to unflatten the image. Just click the label and resize it using the box tool.
Once all your changes have been made, make sure each label is flattened. Your side bar will look like mine does in the picture above. Then hit ‘MAKE IT’ in the top right hand corner.
It will then load a mat preview. If your mats don’t look right, then you most likely didn’t flatten all the labels. Just hit cancel and make sure everything is flattened. At this time, you can also change the project copies. So, if you’re wanting to print 10 of each label, just change that number in the top left hand corner and then hit apply!
Once everything looks right, hit ‘CONTINUE’!
Choose your machine from the top drop down menu.
It will then prompt you to print your first mat. I personally like to print off all mats first, then go back and cut them all. But, you can print/cut/print/cut if you prefer too. So, to start, I click each mat and then hit SEND TO PRINTER. Always make sure to leave the bleed on when you print the images. This gives your machine a little room to make sure that the cut is perfect (see below for a pic).
When you’re ready to cut, then load the printed page of label(s) in the top left hand corner of a LightGrip Mat and load your mat in your Cricut Maker.
As I mentioned above, when you print the image, it prompts you to do so with a bleed on the image. This is to allow a little room for the Cricut machine to cut the image out without any area showing that shouldn’t. As you can see in the image below, the Cricut Maker will cut right inside the printed area!
Repeat with each sheet of labels and you’re good to go!
I am seriously so happy with how these turned out! It made labeling all our boxes a breeze!
