Free Printable Scandi Inspired Christmas Stickers
We’re almost a week into November, which means only one thing! Christmas is now just a few weeks away. Love it or hate it, it’s a certainty of life. So, I’m trying to embrace it this year, and I’m looking to create some festive designs and makes over the next few weeks. First up, I have created some free printable Scandi-inspired Christmas stickers to use on gifts and projects.
I’ve come away from a traditional Christmas colour palette and used more muted tones. I love this look, it’s so simple and although not typical red and green, they still have a magical Christmassy feel.
These PNG and PDF Files are a great way to add a personalised touch to your own projects, whether you use the for embellishing Christmas gifts or making your own cards. Or creating Christmas-themed scrapbooking layouts.
Creating the Scandi Christmas Stickers Design
Although I really love drawing and painting and love creating new designs manually, for these Christmas stickers, I used AI technology!
It’s amazing what you can do with technology these days, isn’t it?
My friend Sarah has been experimenting with this too — pop and have a look at her Christmas stickers. It’s incredible to think that both sets of stickers have been created by the same programme, yet they are totally and utterly different.
Once I’m happy with my generated illustrations, I take them into Photoshop, clean them up, alter the colors, then cut them out so my PNG Christmas stickers have a little white border.
Although AI offers wonderful opportunities and can help us create fantastic things, I don’t think it’s infallible and won’t ever replace a creative human! AI is a great starting point but, ultimately, a tweak here and there can always make it better.
A human touch elevates a basic AI concept into something extraordinary.
How to Use These Free Printable Christmas Stickers With a Cricut
If you’re lucky enough to have a Cricut machine, you can upload the free Christmas Stickers template png to the Cricut Design space to print and cut your Christmas Stickers with ease.
Here’s the process:
- Upload the png file to Cricut Design Space.
- Choose ‘Simple’ from ‘Select Image Type’.
- As the Christmas Stickers are already on a transparent background, just press ‘Apply & Continue’.
- Select the ‘Print Then Cut Image’ option, then click the green ‘Upload’ button.
- Add the file to your canvas.
- The file usually imports larger than it actually is, so — to print and cut to A4 size (or 8.3 x 11.7 inches) — change the size manually to a width of 6.28 inches.
The height should automatically change to 9.8 inches.
- I had an error message on my Cricut saying the file was low-res. I can say with some certainty that it isn’t! The original file was 300dpi. It prints perfectly, too, so if you get this message, ignore it!
- Click the ‘Make It’ button.
- Choose your material size (A4 size or 8.3 x 11.7 inches), then hit ‘Continue’.
- Send to printer.
- Choose your material. I like to use glossy printable sticker paper on the ‘Washi Sheet’ setting.
- Print the file, then pop the printout on your cutting mat, and let the Cricut work its magic!
If you want to isolate some of the Christmas stickers in the Cricut Design Space and duplicate a whole sheet of the same kind, you can do that too.
How to Print and Cut This Free Printable Christmas Stickers Design Manually
Download and upload the free Christmas stickers template PNG or PDF to your computer, then hit print! If your printer is not already set to print to A4, alter the settings, then continue.
You can print onto plain white copy paper, card, or even label paper.
Once you have your printouts, cut the Christmas stickers out manually and stick to your gifts, cards, or scrapbooking projects — either with glue — or, if you’ve used self-adhesive label paper, simply peel and stick.
Other Uses For These Printable Christmas Stickers
Although I originally designed this printable Christmas stickers template with the thought of embellishing Christmas gift wrapping in mind, they could be used in so many other ways.
- Gift tags
- Gift bag stickers
- Present labels
- Planner stickers
- Scrapbooking embellishments
- Christmas cards
- Diary stickers
