CRICUT JOY SMART LABEL WRITABLE VINYL : HOW TO DESIGN & CUT JAR LABELS!Jun 01, 2021
Hi everyone, I'm Bethany and in this tutorial we're finally going to explore
smarttags so I'm really excited to show you this because it's so much fun and it can really open up your world to so many different crafts. very excited i tried this last night for the first time and i was very very happy with the result so what i'm going to do today is show you how you can use
smarttags and you can't actually write to smart tags so we're going to use the
cricutjoy pen and this is just the pen that came with the joy so we're going to use it to write on the
labels and create some
labels for these sweet little jars that I have so I got these I ordered them from Hobby Lobby and I'm going to link them to next always be sure to look at the description box below to see the materials i am using but i got them they are about 2.49 cents so i cant remember if they are for sale or not but they are 10 ounces so i bought these little sweets.
The drives are glass, but the top feels like the little top piece is plastic. It doesn't feel quite glassy to me, it feels more plastic, so I'm going to make some
labelsfor each of these three jars. and they're actually going to go to my craft space so as you know if you have a craft space there's always little things to organize so if you want to organize your craft space this is a great tutorial if you want to organize your pantry its a great tutorial anything you want to put a label with this smart labeling system and write the
labelsthis tutorial will be amazing for you so make sure if you don't want to make craft labels just remove the tips and tricks from this tutorial and make labels for any little containers you'd like but I'll make it for these sweet little craft room organization jars for myself so what we're going to need today is obviously
cricutjoy we're going to need this label smart again it's recordable
vinyland t this I just got the 48 inch package so I can't remember if they sell a bigger version of this but this is the one i got but you're going to need the pen that came with the cricut joy this is a fine point pen and it's a black pen and point shape y'all have to be honest i wasn't really interested in using pens and all that with my cricut machines but the joy of cricut has made me a lover of the writing feature so i definitely think i'll go online this weekend and order different colored pens because i'm having so much fun doing all of this , so the dye is all you'll need for the smart tags so if you want to stop there you're completely done so I'm going to add some paper on top of these little boats just to add a little bit of color and fun so i got three different colors of scrapbooking paper these came in a pack together it was called the girl pack and i think they just coordinate really well together we sweet nice one polka dot one floral one then a pretty gingham one so on we'll pop the inside of these rounds at the top of the container and measure them and then use a main tape to get all our measurements for the labels and then the top of the jars and then some scissors and a spatula again everything here is everything for the top of the jar except the scissors you'll probably use them for both but if you're just doing smart labels you literally need your machine your pen and the smart tags and then potentially some scissors obviously so it's a very, very easy project.
I'm really excited to show you how to do it, so we'll jump into the
designspace. in a second i'm going to show you how you can arrange and lay out all of your labeling and then what we're going to do is cut everything out so first of all let's go ahead and measure our jars so i'm going to open up the inside let's measure for our little ones first circles so I'm just turning the lid inside out I'm taking my tape measure and I'm going to measure the inside and that's coming up to about three inches but I don't want it to be so big that it bubbles or something I'm just going to say I want to that's less than three inches, just maybe a short hair, so we'll go with that for the inside and I'll put it back on top and now the next thing I'm going to do is "me." I'm going to lay it on its side here and I'm going to measure from the top of the glass to the bottom of the glass, so not from the little lid here, but just this top of the glass and we're about to measure just about three inches, just a little short so it'll be easier because we only have to remember three inches and keep it smaller than that so I think my tag will probably be an inch and a half for my height so that's okay we've got all the major men we boom a little tongue twister we have all the measurements we need i think its because i'm reading a lot or dr.
Seuss lately omg they're having fun so we're going to go ahead and jump into the Cricut
designspace we're going to cut out and design our labels and we're going to draw a lot on them and it's going to be really a lot of fun I can't wait for for you guys to see this so let's get off to a good start here we are cricut design space and i'm going to try and make this perfectly for you um smart tags is new to all of us because it launched about a month ago with the joys from Cricut so this is all really fun but it's also really new to all of us so I love it when they give me suggestions for tutorials they want to see and most of the time I know exactly how to do it because I've done it once and again, but with new products I have to think that I will definitely make a video, but I have to teach myself to be able to teach you, so I'm going to create. tags for you guys today and you'll learn how to do it it's very easy if you take a couple more steps from the state than normal but you guys just watch the practice um you'll get it in no time like I did so now what I'm going to do to do is start by going to the image box and i'll click on the first one.
I wrote buying a border draw and I'm just going to add a little vine to my tag so I'll do that one first and it's this one right here and let me hit the info button in case you want to find the same one because this can be hard to find , so the code is MC ffb e80 and I think it's helpful to put the little pound symbol when I'm trying to look it up, so I'll go ahead and select that one here and I'm going to say oval label, label y if you're not sure what kind of tag you want you can type tags in the little search engine up here and you can browse through all the options so I'm going to grab this one so I have my vine and my oval and I'm going to go ahead and insert them into my canvas So first thing I'm going to do is I'm going to label my little white label and first of all I'm going to size this to a height of 1.5 so I'm going to make it a lot bigger so we can see the size down a little bit from that manner.
I really see but I wanted to size my label with UM at first just so I don't forget so now what I'm going to do here is go ahead and duplicate this and the second I'm going to say draw so what this is going to do is I'm going to make this a little bit smaller I'm just going to create a little border around my label so that the bottom oval cuts off like it says here this top label will draw an oval on top of my label so it'll just add a little edge. I thought it would add some visual interest, so what I'm going to do is select both. of the ovals I'm going to go up here to a line you can click on that and say Center so it just moved a little bit but it made it perfect so now what I'm going to do is I'm going to make my little fine be a little smaller again.
This is a drawing file so it will be drawn and if you bring it up and you can't see it what you can do is drag it to the top of your panel your layers panel here or you can right click and say Center front so now I'm going to get this and it looks pretty good to me so next thing I'm going to think it looks this good what I'm going to do next is highlight it and I'm going to say attach now attach make sure all of this label is cut and draw exactly how I like it here so you want to make sure that you attach it so what I'm going to do next is duplicate this for the other labels that I'm going to create but I'll also duplicate it a fourth time and that fourth label will what I'm going to do is I'm just going to hide it, so I'm just going to click this hide button.
I'll do this because I want to have a blank label handy on my canvas because I already know that. I'm going to go to Hobby Lobby easy and order more of these jars because they arrived adorable and I'm going to need more for my craft space anyway so I'm going to make sure I have a blank label hidden in my canvas than when I come back to create more labels , it's done now what I'm going to do is add the text so I'm going to go to the text box here and I'm going to use the seasons home decor font and it's the script style so my first word I like to start with my longest word for sizing purposes and my first word is going to be a letter board ok so I'm going to have to scale this down so that I want all my words in each to be the same size , so what I want is to start with my longest word so I can size it appropriately and then base everything on that just because it's easier to size the largest one first which looks great to me I think we're going to make it perfect so now what I'm going to do is select my words and then I'm going to go up here and say duplicate and drag it down and double click because now they're the size I want so I just want to duplicate them so everything stays the same and next I'm what i'm going to do is close the pin and now it's already sized so i can drag it up where it looks free ok now the next thing i'm going to do is go ahead and duplicate this one more time sometimes he just wants to grab everything wrong, my computer tells me it's 5 am. m. and it's too early to create but i don't agree i can create any kind of it ok so now i'm going to do my third and my third is going to say washi tapes ok and that's great so now what i'm going to do i think those like wait ok i love how they look so now what i'm going to do is go ahead and i'm going to highlight each one and make sure i attach them that way they cut and exactly how i have them arranged here ok , now the next thing I'm going to do is make these circle caps for the paper to cut out, so I'm going to go here to the sheets and I'm going to make a circle and I'm going to remember that I said I just wanted this to be a hair less than 3 inches so I'm going to click 2.9 for that lipstick and I want to make sure these are right these are an inch and a half and Heights which was great and now that we're all good so I'm actually going to hide the circle and I'll be back. and then cut it out of the paper with our green mat, but I'm going to let these cut first, so I'll go ahead and click do it and say no mat because we're using a fresh roll. of the vital
vinyland now this looks great you can move them around if you want but it looks great to me.
I'm going to go ahead and click continue and now it'll just place our little toy here and now just go to popular stuff and we'll click smart label recordable vinyl and now what we're going to do is load the black pen first and then we'll load the material Check if it tells you there are multiple colors down here and you want to use the same color just keep clicking go each time it tells you to load a new pen sometimes the lines like the vine or the oval we're going to draw or the text um sometimes they think they're going to be in different colors because the color variance on the canvas can be a little bit different so Cricket thinks you want to use multiple colors so if you want to change your colors and make sure you do some color changes on your canvas and you can do really colorful labels I'm just going to use black for all of these so I just want me to add a separate black pen and then a midnight black pen it's totally fine i'm just using the same time for everything so if you come up with that and you see it tells you to load a pen but you didn't want to change the color just go ahead and keep clicking go and you can just use the same The guy you've loaded is total great so now what I'm going to do is go ahead and load the pen and we'll start cutting good so we've got the recordable vinyl out of the box everything is ready to go and the first thing that need what we need to do is load the pen first so what we're going to do is just open the clamp and we'll take out the little blade and set it to the side and then take the cap off. and just put the pen in, just drop it in and close the clamp.
It's very, very easy and now what we're going to do is load the auto-loading smart vinyl into the machine, so we'll just let that in. ithe'll push to the end and make sure we have enough vinyl to make the cut which we definitely have plenty of and then he'll go ahead and say click continue and start writing so this is really really fun to watch so if you take a little of coffee, what I do, I have my little coffee, I'll sit here and watch it cut and what's fun is that joy cuts in any order, so it's fun. to see what it does first now i want to make sure my vinyl isn't bunched up here so i just let all my paper keep falling on the table like that it's not bunched up so it makes me nervous when it bunches up and it's the pen the one you're typing on because i don't want it to do anything silly so just make sure it can flow right across your table or flow off your table would be my preference so now it'll start on the little letters it looks great it's ok it's finishing up it looks so cute so what I'm going to do while it's done I'm going to get some rubbing alcohol and clean the little jars because they were shipped to me so there's probably a lot of dirt on them just from being in the store shipping and handling all that st uff, i'm going to clean all of this up like i would stick on vinyl.
I just want to make sure the fronts are clean and free of grime. Okay, here we go, and if you look at your cotton swab, that's you. I know there's usually a few things that come out of there so it's best to be safe and leave it all nice and clean ok so I'm just doing the front end of those now what I'm going to do is install it. the fine point blade so I'm going to take this out and put the cap back on and then we're going to drop the blade right in the little spot here and then we're going to close the clamp and click on something else that I just remembered is the reason why the one that might be asking for other pens is because the vine might be asking for a different size pen, so what you can do in layout space is just cut the pick point for that point or the fine tip for each thing like you'll want to select it for the oval and the vine and the writing and then they'll all use the same pen so that's another step, which will probably remedy that situation, but again we're all learning that's also brand new so now what we're going to do is just download and they look great so I'm just going to cut them out and I'm going to use my little paper trimmer here and I like to use my paper trimmer with smart vinyl because I like to let r a nice clean edge that way when I go to Auto loaded back into the machine it has a nice direct starting point for the next project so now I can save this for my next project and that next project will probably come much sooner than usual which I think because it's so cute and fun okay now what I'm going to do is I'm going to set this aside and I think I'm going to grab my scissors and just shave this little piece down here because I know based on the size I can create another label, so I'll save this little piece that way. create another label that size if i want to make it look amazing i'm so excited ok so now come on get ready to put them on the jars ok i'm grabbing my jars and the ink is already dry you know it dries real , very very fast so that's wonderful it's also wonderful to use the pen that you recommend because it's compatible with vinyl so it's known to dry and not smear or smudge so now what I'm going to do is place my little jars here and you can put a little wedge under each side. so it doesn't roll and I'm going to apply this as a sticker so I'm going to fold the back vinyl okay so I'm going to peel this off as a sticker like this and I'm going to center it as far as I can oh that's so cute oh sorry guys let me layer it up a bit ok.
I'm going to center it the best I can and leave it, so I'll like it. with normal vinyl I'm just going to start in the middle and then with my finger rub towards the center making sure there aren't any little Bles bumps that show up and if there are you will do what you do with vinyl and just rub them with finger. So cute oh my gosh they look so sweet. for reference so i know where to put that other label because it's going to bother me too much geez if i don't get them perfect so let me put another one here together they're pushing each other they're fighting about it so now.
I'm going to grab the next one and I'm just folding that other piece back and then I'm just actually it's a pretty thin little layer um so be very careful but it feels really nice and then again just focusing visually. woah the others walk away ok i got it centered before it's ok so ok so again like this nice nice nice nest oh my gosh I love it ok so we'll put this here again. I'm just leaving one below. so you can tie them together as best you can here, okay, and our little wish ribbon is done. nna they look so good in my little craft space.
I will definitely have to order more. I can think it's amazing. if i really like it all order a ton more ok ok so there they are the labels are on and they look amazing so now what we're going to do is cut out the little circles for the top with our pattern. paper and that will just add a little pop of color to the top and then we'll actually put them together and see the final product so now I'm just going to put my paper on the mat and we'll get that cut okay so I'm going to add my small paper to my mat just place it now in the craigie layout space the material i set it up on was fancy paper and it cuts great so i'll go ahead and auto load it ok make sure my mat is lined up and then I can go ahead and click go and it will cut this circle now again this was just a hair shy of three inches and um we'll just put it on top of our little jars. what I'm going to do is take this perfect paper off and save it for another project and then for this piece what I'm going to do is just fold my walnut over I'll probably bring my little slice or my spatula tool and I'll just mention that lightly it's almost like you're peeling cookies off a cookie sheet it's the exact same method so now I have that little piece and now I'll just do the other two ok so now I have all my little circles cut out so what I'll do is follow Go ahead and take the top off my jars and I'll put a circle pattern side up so it's just pattern side up for the top of the lid and then I'll put it in there and close it and then it's got a very little top. cute on the cover I think that's actually a lot of fun now if you want to advertise I put some double stick tape on it or whatever to keep it from moving then you can.
I'm going to let mine float in there and because they do push up when they're closed and I think it looks very, very pretty. I'm going to add that little third one and I liked doing a little pattern mix because I thought it looked really cool and I added some fun little looks so those are the little jars so let's fill them all up and then we can in the floor space, okay, so they're all full. I'm going to need a bigger jar or another because all my letters won't fit because I have the big ones, but they look really, really nice.
I love how they look. I love it. how the tops and little washi tapes look like, it's all in a nice little place so it looks so sweet. I am very happy with the final look. I hope you enjoyed this so it doesn't matter if you want to create little jars for your craft space if you want to create little jars for your pantry you can do the same routine with the same methods to create your label so go ahead and go crazy and create labels for whatever you want, but I personally love how they turned out and I hope you enjoyed this, so if you enjoyed this tutorial please be sure to give it a thumbs up.
