How to Make Hanukkah Insert Cards

LEARN TO MAKE EASY HANUKKAH INSERT CARDS ON ANY CRICUT CUTTING MACHINE

I wanted to make some fun Hanukkah cards for our Jewish friends. I hope you enjoy this cute card.

Like my other insert cards, this can be made on any cutting machine. In the download, you will find two folders inside. One for Cricut Explore and Cricut Maker and one for Cricut Joy.

Note: The version for the Cricut Joy is only the design so it would be best to use Cricut’s Insert Card Packs available at most craft stores! For more information on how to use this design with a Cricut Joy, please take a look at my Gingerbread Cookie Insert Cards!

In this tutorial, I’ll give you my step by step instructions and tell you what materials I think work best when making this project.

Attach your cardstock to the Cricut StandardGrip Mat using the Cricut Brayer.

STEP 6 - LOADING YOUR MATS AND CUTTING YOUR MATERIALS

To load the mat into the machine, press the double arrows button. Do make sure that the mat is positioned under the mat guides.

You will know the machine is ready to cut your material when you see the flashing "C" button. Press that to start the cut.

Follow Design Space prompts to change out the scoring wheel, pen, and fine point cutting blade.

Once the cut is complete, make sure to peel the mat away from the cardstock rather than the cardstock from the mat. This will prevent any curling of your design.

Repeat Step 6 for until all layers have been cut.

STEP 7 - ASSEMBLE YOUR CARD

Now that everything is cut, we can start to assemble the card.
