Personalized Easter baskets are a great way to make a personal and unique gift for Easter. Adding names to your easter baskets creates a personal touch!

My Cricut made it really easy to make these personalized easter baskets. Personalizing has kind of been my thing since I got my Cricut!

These basket tags came out so adorable and they were easy to make! You could even get the kids involved it was so easy!

Personalized Easter Baskets

I am always trying to make unique Easter baskets for my kids. So this year I just added this little tag to their wicker baskets. They will be so busy showing off their baskets that they won’t be able to focus on the easter egg hunt.

Last year I also used my Cricut cutting machine to personalize my baskets, but I used a dollar tree bucket to personalize with a unicorn, then stuffed it with all sorts of great Easter gifts.

My personalized easter basket tags came out perfect, and the beads were a nice touch. I have some plans on a basket insert also, that I will personalize with my EasyPress 2 heat press.

Personalized Easter baskets are a great way to make a personal and unique gift for Easter. Adding names to your easter baskets creates a personal touch!

Instructions

  1. Place a sheet of wax paper on a hard surface and begin to roll out the clay about 1/4 inch thick continuously flipping clay to ensure a smooth surface on both sides. *Note: If clay seems to be a bit dry, add a few drops of water.
  2. If your clay starts to form little cracks, lay a sheet of wax paper on top of the clay while using the heat and pressure from your hands to slowly smooth over the top surface of the clay.
  3. Next, use the cookie cutter to create the shape of your personalized Easter basket tag.
  4. To create a hole for the twine, use a straw or cake pop stick
    towards the top of the cutout.
  5. Allow to fully air dry for 24-48 hours.
  6. Once the clay is fully dry, being to paint with chalk paint.
  7. Allow the paint to dry
  8. While that is drying, paint the wood beads. I’m using two larger beads
    and two smaller beads.
  9. Use a stick or small rod to string beads across for easier
    painting.
  10. Thread the twine through the clay cutout and tie a knot towards the top
    of the hole.
  11. Add wood beads, alternating colors or sizes depending on
    what style you prefer.
  12. Once all beads are attached, tie another knot towards the top of the last bead to keep in place.
  13. In Cricut design space create the text with the name you will be adding for
    personalization.
  14. Sizing will depend on the length of the name, however, I’ve found a good size to be around 1.5” width by 0.5” height.
  15. Use any style font that you like.
  16. Load the adhesive vinyl onto the blue mat, into the machine, adjust material dial or setting in the app to “vinyl” and hit make it.
  17. Once the vinyl has been cut, use your weeding tool and remove the excess vinyl around and inside each letter.
  18. Cut off enough transfer tape and remove the carrier sheet.
  19. Lay the sticky transfer paper onto the weeded vinyl and apply pressure with a scraper tool or old credit card rubbing it back and forth.
  20. Flip the design face down and slowly remove the vinyl’s backing leaving the vinyl adhered to the transfer paper.
  21. Now, apply the vinyl attached to the transfer tape to the finished clay cutout.
  22. Use the scraper tool on the surface while applying pressure to the adhered vinyl.
  23. Slowly and carefully remove the transfer tape off and away from the clay.
  24. The vinyl will remain and adhere to the cutout.
  25. Tie it to your basket and you’re all finished!

Notes

Add fun charms or pom-poms to your tags to make them even more
fun and give them more personalization.
